Starting with the proper setup is essential to chipping effectiveness. Follow these three simple setup steps to achieve consistent success. Take a stance that aligns you to the target and then (1) put the ball back in your stance, (2) put your weight predominately on the forward foot and (3) put your hands forward of the ball. Keeping your weight on the forward foot and your hands forward during the shot will ensure solid contact. Practice this with a variety of clubs to develop a versatile chipping game.
