Perfect Golf Chipping Technique In 6 Simple Steps!

Out of all the short game skills, the golf chipping technique is one of the easiest techniques to get the hang of and master. Many golfers though, especially beginners and struggling amateurs tend to try and make the golf chip shot much more complicated than it actually is!

Golf chipping is required when you are just off the putting green and find yourself in a position where the golf putter is not an option because there is too much long grass or rough ground to cover. The idea of the chip shot is to carry this rough area of ground and get the golf ball down and running on the smooth surface of the green as soon as possible.

To help you find more success around the greens, why not take some time out to practice with the following 6 simple steps below to perfecting your golf chipping technique, and take a few of those extra wasted shots off of your round!

Step 1 - Open stance - address the golf ball with a slightly open stance, as your golf chipping technique only requires a short back swing. This will enable you to get a better visual perspective of the target and chip shot in hand.

Step 2 - Ball position in center of stance - if the golf ball is sitting in a reasonable lie then position it so it is in the center of your stance, this will help to maintain consistent direction control and ball trajectory for your golf chipping.

Step 3 - Hands pressed forward - to ensure that you strike down and positively through the golf ball, press you hands forward so that the butt end of the golf club is pointing towards your left hip.

Step 4 - Weight favoring left side - again to help ensure that you strike down and through the ball on your golf chip shots, feel that about 60% of you weight is favoring your left side and maintain this feeling throughout the entire chip shot.

Step 5 - Keep Wrist Action Minimal - similar to golf putting, your golf chipping technique should be a one lever swing action, with shoulders, arms and hands working together as one unit. Introducing wrist cocking will only encourage the left wrist to break down at impact, which will result in chunks and bladed chip shots!

Step 6 - Accelerate through the ball - probably the most important step and one where alot of average golfers go wrong! If you want any form of success with your golf chipping make sure that you continue to accelerate down and through the golf ball at impact. The follow through should be at least as long as your backswing.

If you are serious about improving your golf chips shots and looking for some inspirational advice on how to take your short game and golf chipping to the next level, then i would recommend that you get a copy of Phil Mickelson's excellent golf instructional book called 'Secrets Of The Short Game'
