Practice your Chipping

practice your chippingLook at the hole to practice your chipping.  A great way to get a feel for chipping accurately is to take the flagstick out and look at the hole while you chip.  Set up to the ball as you would normally do, with your weight on your front foot, but look at the hole.  Chip the ball while keeping your eyes on the target.  You will be surprised that after a few strokes, you will become very accurate.  Start with twenty-foot chips and try to make them drop in the hole.  Your eyes will help you to both judge distance and accuracy.  Try different distances and see if your success continues.  After a while, go back to your normal way of chipping and you should have a greater sense for the shot.
