Golf Tip – Short Shots

June 18, 2016 Posted by Matt

short shotsYou do not need a weight shift on your short shots.  This is especially true with pitch or chip shots. Your backswing should be short for these types of shots. If you do shift your weight there’s really not enough time to get back to your front side.  The result is usually a fat shot or you skull it over the green.  At set up, you should have all of your weight on your front foot.  With a one piece take away, use your shoulders to start your swing.  Minimize movement with your lower body on short shots and avoid making a weight shift to your right back side. You will find you hit more solid shots and improve your scores.
