When chipping it is very important that we keep about 70% of our weight on the lead leg throughout the shot. This will help us to create a downward angle of attack on the golf ball.
Many amateur golfers tend to hang back on the trail leg and hit up on the ball in an effort to add more loft to the club. This can lead to fat or thin shots, and overall inconsistent ball striking.
In order to help with this common flaw, Swing-U instructor Ryan Rustand provides us with the tiptoe chip tip.
- Set up to the golf ball as you normally would for a chip shot
- Bring your trail leg up and place the tip of your toes on the ground
- This will force most of the weight onto your lead side
- Proceed to hit a chip shot maintaining balance throughout the stroke
