When working on your chipping basics, ball position is one of the first things amateur golfers can do to ensure crisp, ball-first contact.
Swing-U instructor Ryan Rustand demonstrates and explains how using an alignment rod can give you a simple and effective visual aid for perfect chip shots.
- Set your trail foot parallel to the alignment rod.
- From there, place the ball directly off of the inside of your trail foot.
- Using a narrow stance, practice striking the ball-first and learning how the ball reacts to have a go-to chip shot.
