The Chip Putt
One of the easiest shots in golf

Finally, I love teaching my students the Feedback Drill I'm demonstrating here. The goal is to learn terrific distance control. Lay a club down three to four feet behind the hole. Hit five to six chips, with your goal of getting all the balls either in the hole or between the hole and the club. If you miss one, start over again until you reach your goal. You'll quickly see that focusing on how the ball rolls and how far it goes will help you take focus off the stroke and more on the shot at hand. It always ensures you get the ball to the hole more often, helping to make it easier to get up and down.
Give this drill a whirl. I know it will help your "chip putts" from various places around the green.
