Rukket Golf Tips: Chipping - Drill For Width and Pivot


Hey Rukket Nation, Henry Fall and Dana Finkelstein, LPGA TOUR, back with another chipping tip for you. Let's delve into a drill that can transform your chipping game. We often see excess hand action causing trouble when a gentle touch is all that's needed for short chips.

Grab your club and position it against your sternum or belly button, then grip down. Now, focus on creating a smooth, extended pivot with your arms. This drill encourages your grip to remain centered, preventing excessive forward movement.

By maintaining this setup, you'll notice the club returning to a more vertical position before impact, reducing the need for intricate timing. This straightforward approach enhances consistency and control.

Watch as Dana demonstrates the technique, showcasing the natural return of the clubhead. This drill simplifies your chipping, helping you achieve a more effective and reliable short game. Practice this at home to refine your technique and elevate your chipping skills..
