Get Low To Chip Better
Better chipping in a hurry
A great way to practice your chipping is to do what I'm demonstrating in the photo above. Play the ball just off the inside of your right foot, about a grip's length away from your body. This will help you "cover" your chip shots a little better and control your trajectory and spin.
Remember, to be a better chipper, don't lose your spine angle before the shot is finished and stay low through the stroke. By the way, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus both chipped this way in their prime. And, hey, if it worked for them, it certainly will work for you, too.
