Golf Lessons with Derek Hooper – Golfers often struggle to make consistent and solid contact on their chip shots. Yet good chipping can not only save you many strokes per round it can also give you more birdie opportunities.

Too often players misunderstand how to play a chip shot and so they end up either hitting the ground before the club reaches the ball, or catching ball only sending the ball shooting low and across the green. Such misses make it impossible to control flight and roll, and thus the overall distance you would like to hit these shots.

In this video I show you how you can follow a simple progression of skills to ensure you will hit solid chip shots every time. I will then show you how you can build on these skills to add some variations to your chipping and thus get the ball closer to the hole than ever before.

It will take a little patience as you work through the drills. But if you stick with it your practice will pay off with more up and downs around the green.

Thanks Derek.

The essence of that stuff is to hold back the club shaft with the right hand through the whole move. Lays tend to scoop and flip and this has an end with the right hand doing the right thing: Hold back. From chip to drive. There is no need for drills and tricks. Just hold back. If you don't hold back, you spoil every stroke. From Chip to drive. Teachers and cracks don't want to hear this because they are not aware of what they'r doing. But look at Dereks right hand when he is explaining things. It's bent back all the time. Try it out and you will see. The secret of golf is all about that. Sorry for wistleblowing.

nice lesson. Do you use the same technique when the ball is in the rough?

You can hit consistently solid chip shots close to the hole very time with the correct ideas and a little practice

Hi EnglishGolfingWorld, thanks for the question.
In this video I am chipping with a 9 iron. But the premise is that you can chip with any number of your shorter irons depending on your chosen landing area and the amount of carry and roll the shot requires.
I hope that helps and all the best with your golf game.
