  1. Check 3 things. 1. If you are bending down to the ball. You must sit athletically (like a quarterback). 2. The ball is sitting up a bit and you are setting up with the club below or lower than the ball. Sit down just enough so the club head is off the ground and at same level as the ball. 3. You are using your hands to hit the ball. Setup shaft in line with front arm, and use only your shoulders to lead the handle of the club through. If it’s real long chip, use a pitch shot (rotate).

  4. Hi, I’m only 16 and I’ve only been playing for a few years. A problem I have a lot is that I take way to much grass and ground while chipping. Any tips?

  5. Yes! Absolutely! Nothing except the front shoulder moves in putting. Play the ball just inside the front foot, Shaft must lead the club face slightly at setup, lock wrists!, lock lower body and hips, and then use only your front shoulder to push down then pull up. Everything rotates around the back of your neck. Remember nothing moves, no elbows, hips, wrists. Just push down, then pull up using front shoulder.

  6. Really great explanation of the chip shot !

    For years I had problems with my chipping.Fat shots and Chili dipping were the norm it seemed.Then somehow I tried keeping my right hand and wrists from breaking down through impact and leading the club through the shot.

    What a world of difference !

    I started hitting crisper chips and getting down in 2 from off the green.My scores have gone down

    QUESTION : Do you maintain this concept in putting as well ? I.e. Not flipping the wrists

    I have used

  7. Really good advice, I have been playing for 2 years and always struggle on what to do when chipping, this just clears it up for me, thx

  8. This is a great video! As a beginner with only two nine hole rounds u der my belt, this is extreamly helpful! subscribed!

  9. Really liked that video gonna try it this weekend and hopefully save a few shots.

  10. Thanks for the nice comments. Now, there are at lease 2 of us that know what a “Chile Dip” shot is. Haha. I’m gonna take you up on the Canaries invite. Ross

  11. From the Canary Islands (Spain) Spot on Ross, your tips are magnificient. You’re absolutely right about the chili dip shots… I’ve been chipping since I started to play rolling my wrists and it has always costed me awful results. If that wasn’t enough, I almost developed a sort of ‘chip in’ technique which is more like a quarter swing shot than what you teach here. In short… thanks a lot. Anytime you drop by the Canaries, let’s play a round together.

  12. you going to hit every green in regulation in every round? dont think so? be grateful for his video!

  13. Thanks for the nice comments. I’ll put a bunker shot on my to do list for sure. I also have a couple of different iPhone apps coming too.

  14. I like how you think. If you’ve been watching golf this week, not everyone hits the green. There has been some chipping, pitching and scrambling going on for sure. I think you might need to have this shot in your bag just in case…. Ross

  15. I have so much enjoyed every video. After watching your chipping video, I went straight to the course I’ve been playing on. I love the drag in front of the ball and keeping the wrists forward seems to enable this drag, now I only need to master it. I will send you a video of my swing when I am able. However, can you please post a sand shot. And I love your voice, it is so relaxing. Thanks, John Sparkman

  16. Why dont you teach us approach shots first. If we hit the green with our approaches we dont need to chip.

  17. Good video, loved the numerous “chili-dip” references

  18. Good tips. Clear and concise

  19. Makes a lot of sense. Thanks!

  20. this is one of the better short game video on you tube. He makes it simple and easy to understand with no jargon technical talk. Good Vid.

  21. I agree totally and teach only that move but. that is called pitching, when the hips engage. I have written much about that move in my blog. Learning to use large muscles athletically to control the the golf swing is key to all golf shots. Unwinding from ground up, is the key to consistency. This video is 4 years old and is about chipping. Many still like to chip and this helps them. Read my earlier response below to blueterrace about hips.

  22. I agree concerning the fact that there are different visions on how you should chip. And that makes it sometimes difficult to me to find my way to improve. I just noticed lately that rater than keeping my upper body stiff in order to avoid flipping the wrists, if I add a little hip turn to the move that makes everything easier and more natural. And the results have been dramatically improving.

    keeping the ball square means that at address, your club face is facing towards your target. opening the club face just means that you are increasing the angle and the loft of the shot. you can open the club face and still stay square to the shot

  25. how do you open the club face and still keep it square to the target ? open the club face means, it is not square to the target – it is aiming to the right.
    It doesn’t make sense .

  26. This method is used in order to get the ball to stop faster in order to keep from rolling past the hole. :)
