Golf Tip – Poor Chip Shots

October 9, 2015 Posted by Matt

poor chip shotsMany golfers hit poor chip shots and poor pitch shots because they decelerate as they come into the ball.  The usual result is a ball that gets just onto the green and ends up woefully short of the hole.  In practice, concentrate on making a slow and controlled backswing that is not overly long for your chip and pitch shots.  Make a crisp movement with the club toward the ball, and let the club go through without stopping.  By accelerating through the shot, your pitches and chips will hit and roll out to the hole more often.  You can set the distance you need to move the ball by the length of your backswing.  Be consistent in the speed that you use to go through the ball, and you will see a big improvement on your short game.
