One of the most common faults in a golfer’s short game is not enough control when chipping. This can result in many extra shots during a round of golf.

When chipping, remember to set up with your weight on your front leg, as this will stabilise your lower body movement.

Your hands also must be slightly forward towards the inside of your front leg.

When hitting the ball keep your wrists firm. This will give you the control you need to get the golf ball closer to the hole.

If you continue to have problems with your chipping, a one-on-one lesson with a golf professional can help you to improve your golf game.
