The Chipping 5-Foot Circle Drill

We are all familiar with our ‘555 Golf Academy’ ‘5/10/15 Foot Approach Circle Drills’. How simple can it get? Hit the ‘Circles’ from inside your ‘Full Swing #PW’ and then make Putts. Easy math! Small number bet bigger ones! This is absolutely, always about your ‘12 Inch Landing Circle Drill’. Use it! We do not aim at the Flagstick, but at the ‘Landing Circle’. With proper weight or speed, Mother Nature shall do the rest!

Next, let’s take these ‘Circle Drill’ to the ‘Short Game Practice Area’. We will use only ‘The 5 Foot Circle’. This is a pretty simple ‘Dance Floor Precision Drill’.

Step 1) Pick a Flagstick and place a 5 Foot Circle around it. Start flat and easy (A), getting a more difficult cup (B) and finally a most difficult cup (C).
Step 2) Use 15

golf balls from three locations. They should be Short (15 Feet), Medium (25 Feet) and Long (35 Feet), Vary the length as your confidence and consistency improves.
Step 3) Record your results … one point for each ball in the 5 Foot Circle.
Step 4) Grade you results and keep track of your improvement.

Remember, all these BP Skill Drills are based on ‘The 5 Set-Ups’ (Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment) and ‘The 5 Essential Elements’ (Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot & Angle Of Attack)

Be systematic and have FUN practising!

This will earn you lower scores and more golf invitations from your buddies!

Well done!
