How to Chip Better: Tiger Woods Chipping Analysis

How to Chip Better By Studying Tiger Woods Chipping Stroke

For a long time, you’ve been troubled by your chip shots.  You sometimes hit them heavy and other times thin.

At the bottom of your swing, you may even feel as though you have developed a “hitch.”  As your club nears impact, your hands tend to jolt, leaving you with uncontrollable results.

Well, the good news is that it’s not your fault.  It’s most likely a result of bad advice from a playing partner or even from your golf pro.

For years instructors have told their students to put the ball way back in their stance, to lean the shaft way forward, and to pull the club through impact.

If this is your technique, you’re going to have trouble escaping your chipping nightmare.

This is not how the PGA Tour professionals do it.

In my latest chipping video, you get an analysis of Tiger Woods’ chip shot technique.  You’ll see that it’s very similar to, if not exactly the same as, the RST chipping fundamentals.

A few of the keys for golf chipping will be:

  1.  Correct ball positioning.  By narrowing your stance and putting the ball off the inside of your right toe, the ball will now be muchcloser to the bottom of your swing arc. You will still be hitting down and through, but the angle of attack will become much shallower. This will give you a level of consistency that all your friends will envy.
  2. Only a little forward shaft lean.  A lot of forward shaft lean means your angle of attack will become very steep. This will leave you wanting to jerk through impact in an effort to shallow the clubs path. Somewhere between 2° and 5° is perfect.
  3. Keep your left wrist bowed.  Perhaps the one piece that causes the most inconsistency is the flipping of your wrist through impact. By keeping the logo of your glove moving toward the target (left wrist bowed) all the way through impact, you can cure your flip forever.  Feel as though the left wrist leads the way.
Notice how Tiger keeps a flat left wrist through impact.
