In the palm of your hand.

When you are chipping not only do you have to make good contact but most importantly you need to know where to land the ball so it ends up next to the hole. Take some balls and throw them underhanded toward various targets. Toss them high and low with the same stiff-wristed motion you would when chipping. Not only will this improve distance control but your imaginative skills will also improve. Check out this great tip.


If you want to improve your game, give us a call on 95173471 and make an appointment for a lesson with our PGA David.
