Improving your chipping can be simple if you just take what you’ve learned from putting. When putting you want to create a capital “Y” with your arms and the shaft of the club. In chipping you want the ball aligned with the back foot of your stance so your arms make a lowercase “y” from your right arm to the lead arm down the shaft of the club.

Another way to look at it, you can place a green dot just below the handle and a red dot just above the head of the club. In chipping you always want to keep the green dot in front of the red dot.

Next, try and keep most of your weight toward the target. Create a little hinge at your wrist while setting up the shot. Then, simply swing all the way through to the chip while keeping your wrists flat for good contact. Make sure to hold your finish position until the ball stops rolling.

Following these simple tips will improve your chipping ability and consistency in no time.
