Lessons - Chipping


Lesson # 1 - Distance control for chipping strokes

This chipping lesson can be conducted at the start of each golf round or during practice sessions to help you judge the distance of your chipping strokes. This lesson will require up to 100 meters of flat practice fairway, approximately 10 golf balls and your relevant chipping clubs (wedges and short irons etc).

Start this lesson by chipping a ball 5 to 10 meters up the practice airway. Once the ball has come to rest, aim the next chip shot directly at the stationary ball and try to hit the ball on the full. If you haven’t hit the ball or duffed the shot, the ball will run past the first ball struck. If you happened to hit the ball on the full or have duffed your shot, try to hit the closest ball on the full again. Repeat this process until your hitting a ball a distance were you wouldn’t otherwise use your chipping clubs. It is advantageous to conduct this lesson several times until you feel that your distance control of your chipping irons is improved.



Additional Lesson - Distance control for all clubs
This lesson can be also conducted to improve the distance control of all your clubs (short irons, long irons, fairway woods and your driver). All you have to do is start the aforementioned chipping lesson until you reach a distance were your chipping irons are inadequate. At this distance you change your chipping irons to short and mid irons and continue trying to hit balls on the full, whilst making sure that each successive shot travels further than the first. Once the short and mid irons an inadequate, continue onto the long irons, fairways woods and driver until the maximum distance that you can hit with your driver is exceeded. This additional lesson can only be conducted using long practice fairways and/or driving ranges and will require a lot more the 10 golf balls. It is also advised that when you change from your chipping irons to short and long irons, fairway woods and driver, that only one shot per club is conducted. This will provide the most optimum distance control for all your clubs in your bag
