City Golf Chipping Distance Drill:The Umbrella

Often a very over looked area in the amateurs game is correctly controlling the distance of their short shots around the green. You will often see the pro’s chipping in or if they miss, they leave themselves just a couple of feet for par or birdie. This is of course part skill and mostly hard work and hours spent practicing.

Here is a basic drill for how you can practice in your own back yard! I have seen great results from many clients using this method and if done correctly you can be sure you will drop shots off your scores.

Try and vary the distances you chip from and clubs you use, remember chipping and short game is all about imagination and feel, don;t be scared to try new clubs and please try steer away from the 60 degree unless you absolutely have to use it!

Have a great Golfing Week!
