More Chipping

As you know, we call our proven ‘Ball Striking’ programmes ‘The 555 Golf Progressive Procedures’. What does that mean? Quick review! Firstly, two ‘555 Golf Quotes’. “There Is A Putt In Every Drive!” and “I Drive As I Putt!” What Does That Mean? The first 8 to 12 inches of your ‘Putting Procedure’ are pretty well-known by all golfers. Driver is the same! This involves a proper ‘Set-Up’ followed by our ‘8 Step Putting & Chipping Pre Shot Routine’. (see ‘Proper Grip, Quiet Triangles, Relaxation, proper Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing’ (DDB) Ocular Acuity.

A Chip Is A Putt With A Loft-Generated Hop. Now try putting with a #8 Iron? This might ring a loud bell? You can chip with a #LW to a V Fairway Metal. Chipping demands our ‘5 SET-UPS’. Each element must be in play! (see ‘Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment’)

Posture means Chin & Chest Tallish … creating space between our Hips and Sternum. (Do not ‘Keep Your Head Down’) Grip needs to start in a very simple form. Might this Country Gentleman Golf Teacher strongly suggest ‘10 Finger – Target Hand Low’? (Quiet Lever Triangles, Clubface Square to the Body Line. Do not attempt to adjust your Set-Up what we refer to as ‘Open-Open, meaning Clubface and Alignment Open. As you Open your ‘Clubface Aim’ you reduce the amount of exposed Clubface to the golf ball. You might suffer from striking the ball very ‘Low On The Face’. This is a ‘Loft and Trajectory Killer’) Stance should start off ‘Square to the Target or Body Line’ as with your ‘Putting Procedure’. Next, flare your Target Foot slightly ‘Open’ in order to ‘Release Your Hips or Spinal Pivot Crankshaft’. ‘Keep Your Shoulders Parallel to the Target Line’. They very much ‘Control Your Lever Assemblies’. Ball Location should ideally be slightly Brace Side of the Sternal Center. One can move this fore or aft as required to produce your desired Ball Flight. Weight should be slightly Target Foot Loaded.  Alignment has been adequately covered above. Timing & Rhythm are key ingredients. Say your “Little & Word” at Top Of Back Swing (TOB) however abbreviated that might be.

Once you have read this material twice, go put it to practical use! Don’t be lazy and put ‘Proper Practice’ off to a To-Be-Determined future date! “Tomorrow and Tomorrow Creeps Into Our Petty Pace”! Procrastination improves very little of our poignant lives!
