This is the Chipping Distance Control Lesson. These Golf Tips For Chipping are designed to help you get the ball close to the hole every time. The beauty of golf is that almost every shot is unique. You never truly get the same chip shot twice. Understanding how to adjust for each shot is key to success.
Whether it's an iron shot into a green or any chip, pitch or putt...distance control is vital. You can't get the ball close to the hole without hitting it with the right amount of power. Let's work on developing a system that will give you the best opportunity to hit your shot the right distance almost every time.
Fortunately there is a system that allows you to develop this skill. Your scores will drop quickly once you get the hang of this concept.
If you have played other sports, like tennis, baseball even running, if you want more power you hit harder or run faster. You change your speed. However, in golf, changing speed is leads to inconsistency. Inconsistent contact and inconsistent distance control.
The secret to distance control is keeping your speed consistent and varying the length of your swing. Not faster and slower, but longer and shorter. Longer chips need longer chip swing and shorter chips need shorter chip swings. It is the same concept as putting.
In order to develop, what is often is referred to as 'touch', use the following steps...
In order to hit a short chip shot...
In order to hit a long chip shot...
Notice how the ball traveled different distances just by varying the length of your stroke. This is by far the easiest way to judge your distance on a consistent basis.
The more you practice and use this technique the easier it will be to judge distance and get the ball closer to the hole.
