Chipping drills.
I’m having major issues around the greens. Every chip is either bladed or I hit an inch behind the ball and the ball goes a foot.
Not sure what to even try to practice here to get it right. Any drills you guys use to get solid contact on chips?

re: Chipping drills.
Get your pw and 8 iron and all the balls you can gather. Hit till they are gone, then pick them up and do it again. Practice hitting the ball first and develop a feel. Keep doing that for weeks, months, and so on. Once you can handle those clubs around the green with confidence, do the same with SW or LOB. Feet close together and ball in mid-back to back stance. Pick a spot and it hit there over and over and over.

re: Chipping drills.
When I get into that slump I literally chip for a bucket on one leg. The forward leg of course.

Even sometimes during a round when I lose confidence I will stand on one leg.

Slow tempo and soft hands. Keep your arms moving at the same speed as the buttons on your shirt.

Kisner explains it well.


I also like to keep the weight on my front with feet close together.

re: Chipping drills.
I honestly will hit 30-40 balls on the range with my 60 degree and 56 degree to about 10-15 yards. I don’t feel bad if I blade one and it helps me gain confidence to keep the club moving. Typically if you blade it, you are a little quick with it and a fat chip is typically from quitting on it and decelerating through the ball.

Doing this on the range let’s me do what I want rather than worry about people around a chipping area.

David Leadbetter "The Short Game" - especially like the "chip/putt" drill/technique,starting at 36:45 minutes into the video, although I don't point my elbows out nearly as much as he does in the video

re: Chipping drills.
This sounds a bit crazy, and it's not for beginners, but it does really help, and it's my go to move if my chipping starts to slip.

Practice some chips off the green. Make sure you are using the bounce. Obviously, try not to leave a divot on the green. You can't do it without properly using the bounce. But that's how you should be chipping anyways.

If you destroy a green and get kicked off the course, don't blame me.

Yeah it's one of the most helpful instructional vids I've ever watched. Don't care too much for the barstool guys but for that piece of content I'm grateful.

1 - Minimize what clubs to chip with (me it's sand wedge & lob wedge only)
2 - place ball back in your stance
3 - hit down on the ball
4 - repeat

I'm dang near 100% with a 60* inside of 65 yards. It may not be the best way to chip, but with my limited practice time, I've found this to be the best path to get consistent. Tough to,have touch if you barely practice and chip with 3-4 different clubs, imo.

Says who? If it works for you then it's the perfect way to chip.

Same for me but 90 yards. There is the rare occasion where I know I’m on a super thin lie and the ground is soft to where the bounce on the 60 just isn’t enough to stop the leading edge from digging. I then go to my 54 or 50. Not shots I practice unless I’m on the course alone and run into the need for one of those shots.

I wish I remembered this more often with club selection.

Always want that saucy 60 spin but wind up getting a fat dip of chili instead.

I need to remember it more when I’m chipping into the grain and even a good strike and get stuck.

re: Chipping drills.
I’ve found there is no right or wrong way to chip.

Go to the range and chip 1000 balls all different ways. Whichever seems to work for you, master it

Would require me to bring multiple clubs to the green. Just way too much work.
