We’ve all done it: just off the green, ten feet from the hole, and all you have to do is put 25% on a pitching wedge to get the ball close. But somehow you manage to leave it short. It’s unforgivable, but it’s also completely excusable. In this free video, PGA Professional Rafael Floriani shows you how to chip a golf ball with topspin so you never leave another chip shot short of the hole. Avoid the flubbed chip, and you could save yourself valuable strokes!
The key to putting chip shots close to the hole is to guarantee they can’t end up stopping short. You can do that by putting topspin on the ball, and you can do that by getting the toe of the club past the heel. Rafael shows you exactly what that means, and explains why this mechanic is the only thing you’ll need to keep in mind when you step up to chip just off the green. Utilized Rafael’s advice, and take advantage of our other short game tips, and we guarantee you’ll become a more consistent player around the short stuff!
