How To Chip Consistently - Part 1
How do you work out the distance with the ball when you are chipping?
What you are going to learn today is how to get the distance right with one particular club so that you are getting a consistent feel and distance with the ball.
You can use any club for this, but for today's demonstration how I am going to show you how to chip consistently I am going to use a pitching wedge.
You can use any club with this exercise but the challenge for you is to use one club and create the same distance with each shot.
So how do you do that?
In order for you to achieve the a consistent result with your chip shot you have to ensure that you are producing the same length swing with it. That's the key, the same length swing.
So for example if you were to chip the ball with a small back and through swing, the ball would end up a particular distance from you, however if you were to increase the length of the back swing and forward swing, guess what would happen? Yes, that's right you would end up with a different distance, which in this case will be much longer.
Here is how to chip consistently with the same club repeatedly.
When you set up to practice your chip shot, the plan is to produce the same length swing each time.
So if you are to get out your pitching wedge and chip the ball, you want to produce the same back and through swing each time. I call it a "tick-tock swing."
It is about creating awareness for what you actually have to do. Be aware how far back your golf club has to go and how far your golf club has to go forward through the shot.
If you create the awareness then you can repeat it.
But if you are standing over the ball and chipping for the sake of chipping, which you believe is practice, then it won't work for you.
The best way to see what to do is to refer to the video above for the length of the swing. As you will see the chipping action is a small action, back and through action. So make sure you are doing the same.
This is the first part of a series of videos on how to chip consistently.
So go out and test this one to see if you can repeat the same action and get a very similar result with the ball.
Have an absolutely awesome day, take care, and remember; tee it high and let it fly.
