This week we concentrate on chippingThe most common problem I see when people try to chip is that they try to lift the ball up into the air. This is the opposite of what you should be trying to do and will cause a lot of fat and thin shots. What you should be doing is making sure your weight is on your left foot and your hands are pressed forward in line with your left leg at address. Then, as you hit the ball DON'T SCOOP IT! but hit down on it and lead through with your hands. The loft of the club will pop the ball up into the air, it will land softly and roll up to the hole.Happy GolfingMIKE WILSONProfessionalRoyal North Devon Golf Club01237 477598
