SCOOPING whilst Chipping

leave a comment »

PROBLEM: Hitting behind the ball 
or high on the ball when chipping.

This is caused by trying to get the ball in the 
air by hitting up on it instead of down.

The upward motion results in the club head 
passing the hands before impact.  

This bottoms the club out before it reaches 
the ball, resulting in either a fat or a thin shot.

To correct this problem, keep your hands 
ahead of the club head at address and 
through impact.

Be sure to follow through

Don’t flip your right wrist.
