Chipping - Setup
The setup for the classic chip shot is
probably the most unique of all stances in the game.
With your feet a maximum of one foot apart
and the ball lined up off the inside of the back foot,
place the hands in a position so that the club face
is square to the target and the hands are lined up even
with the inside of the front thigh. From this position
place a little extra weight on the front foot and bend
the knees slightly more than during a normal (full swing)
setup. Often when chipping it is good practice to choke
down on the club anywhere from half an inch to 3 or
4 inches. This allows golfer to get closer to the ball
and to be more aggressive with the shot. The closer
your hands are to the club head, the more control over
it you will have.
