This is the Chipping Pre-Shot Routine Lesson. It is very important to follow a routine for every shot that you play. All the best players in the world follow a routine so that under pressure they can feel comfortable by doing something that is familiar. It is a great idea for all players. It will give you the best opportunity to hit your best shots.
Your set up position is key to hitting great shots, and developing a good routine will help you with that. Let's work on building your routine so that you can make that clutch shot when you need to...
Once you have read the chip...choose the club that will best help execute how you 'see' your shot. That is why it is important to put your bag down without taking out a club. Get into this habit so that you can make the best possible club and shot selection.
Make sure you follow your routine every time. We may not be able to make the exact same swing every time we are faced with a shot. Hey...not even the top tour players can do that! But you can follow the exact same routine for every shot. If you do it will make you a better player.
No...you're right, the routine won't hit the shot for you. But a consistent routine will eliminate setup and alignment mistakes. Since most mistakes happen during the setup, you are now giving yourself a great opportunity to hit a great shot and lower your scores.
If you do hit a bad shot...you will know that it was your swing and not your setup. This is a huge advantage, because you can focus on the actual problem and not guess as to what went wrong.
