Give us a call at 800-624-4653 or 843-237-4993.  We will be happy to book a commuter school or a package that contains accommodations, golf, and golf school.

The setup in chipping is critical to the final outcome of the shot.  The ball position, the hand position and the shoulder position all play an important role in the success of this shot.

The Ball Position.

This should be slightly behind the lead foot.  By placing the feet together with the ball right in the middle and then turning the feet towards the target without moving the heels, puts the ball position slightly behind the lead toe.

The Hand position.

The butt of the club (after placing the clubhead behind the ball) should be directly over the lead thigh.  This gives the club a forward shaft lean that will help eliminate hitting behind the ball.

The Shoulder Position.

The shoulder should be square to the intended line of flight.  This allows the clubhead to swing easily back and through in a fairly straight line.
