Some people simply don’t have the inclination or time to work on their chipping technique. Although you should if you genuinely want to be a good golfer.

Over time you’re going to find yourself in all sorts of different lies and predicaments around the green.

It’s important you not only learn a good technique (technical practice) but also practice from a variety of different spots, lies and positions around the green (variable practice). 

You can learn more about technical practice and variable practice in my FREE eBook “Practice Like The Pros”. Download it from the homepage today!


Using your Hybrid club (utility/5wood) is sometimes a good choice of shot. If you’re struggling with confidence when you’re chipping with a wedge on a tight lie or if the grass is too long just off the green to putt it, grab your hybrid club.

the setup is very similar to a normal chip shot:

weight forward

shaft forward

straight line with left arm and club

Then make a small putting stroke style action!

The ball will spring off the face, so there’s no need for speed or aggressiveness in the stroke.
