Chipping - Setup II
When addressing a ball before making
a chip, place some extra weight on your front foot.
This allows you to mimic having completed a weight transfer
during the swing without actually having to move your
body and transfer any weight.
Having extra weight ahead of the ball
creates a stronger anchor on which to pull the club
towards. This is especially helpful when facing a chip
from deep grass. The extra weight forward will allow
you to pull the club through the grass, make good contact
and getting the chip onto the green without much risk
of having the club get caught in the grass and producing
the dreaded flub.
