[Chipping Tips] Hot to select the correct club for a chip shot
May 24, 2012
Learning to chip correctly is one of the most important parts to scoring well in the game of golf. A good chipper can cut five shots off of his score per round.
This week's lesson will teach you how to select the correct club while making a chip shot in golf.
Remember, you will be able to practice our tips then share them with your Junior. Together you will enjoy more success and fun on the golf course. So let's start with this week's chipping lesson:
1. Chipping Club Selection
There is one swing in chipping that you control the distance you want the ball to travel by changing clubs. The 9 iron is for short chips, the 7 iron is for medium length chips and the 5 iron is for longer chips.
2. Chipping - Distance ControlIf you are a one-club-chipper you had to learn your distance control from the length of the back-swing. This is a very difficult way to chip a golf ball. Being a one-club-chipper means you have to have incredible touch ALL of the time, however if you chip with the 5-7-9 irons, you take all of the grey area out of your chipping game and put it in the hands of the three chipping clubs.
The reason the 9 iron is the best place to start; it is the easiest of the three clubs. Over the course of a lifetime most of your chip shots will be between the 7 and 9 iron with very few chips being the longer ones. So why not start practicing with the 9 iron?
It is very important that you spend time practicing so you know EXACTLY how far your chip shots fly and roll. The chart is to simply provide you with a guide to work off of.
We hope you enjoyed this week's lesson. If you would like to learn more tips like this, check out the Full Swing DVD. You can find it here:
