Golf Tip: Chipping

Clint here to give you a useful tip on chipping. Often I am asked for pointers around the green to help with the short game. A fail safe method I have been teaching for years is the B.L.T. approach. I am not referring to the sandwich at the 19th hole, but an acronym that will help you set yourself up for success around the green.

Golf Tip: Back

Back in your stance. The focus here is to be sure to keep your ball back in your stance.

Golf Tip: Lean

Lean into your target. The focus here is to put 75% of your weight on your forward foot (right-handed golfers, it's your left foot).

Tilt the butt end of the club towards your left, hip pocket (for right-handed golfers).

Until next time, keep swinging!
