Stabilize Your Chipping

Chipping is a lesson that is often taught, but rarely executed properly.  Your body weight is intended to stay forward, but many people shift their weight away from the target.  This instantly causes the bottom of the swing to strike behind the intended spot and cause the dreaded scoop.  Try this drill.  Set your weight on your front foot, and lift the heel of your back foot so only the toes are touching, bearing very little weight.  Hit the shot while keeping your weight in the same position.  Practicing this drill will lead to many crisp shots.
