Chipping Like A Pro


    By Jered Gusso


    Chipping the ball is not as hard as it seems.  If you are having trouble chipping the ball you probably have a poor set up.  Here’s a couple tips to get set up like a Pro. 


    Make sure the ball is placed towards the back of your stance (right foot for right handed golfers).  Take a narrow stance and place 90% of your weight on your left foot (refer to arrow in picture).  Lastly, make sure your shoulders are more level and not tilted behind the ball, this will help hit down on the ball. 


    Now, keep your wrists stiff and use your shoulders to make the stroke.  Good Luck!  Please send any feedback to
