How To Avoid Hitting Fat While Chipping

I just thought of a shot that I don’t see it very often, but for those of you that struggle with it, I wanted to give you a little golf tip on chipping, and I feel confident it will help you.

Do you hit fat shots when you chip the ball? In other words, do you hit the ball and it barely moves on the green?

You’ll hit it fat or you don’t hit any golf ball at all. You’ll hit it fat where you hit a little bit of golf ball, and then you’ll hit it fat where it moves, maybe 4 or 5 feet.

The correct path that your chip shot’s supposed to travel on is just slightly, ever so slightly on the inside.

Well, if you're hitting it fat, then here’s a little golf tip on chipping. You're going too much outside, which makes the club go too vertical.

And the correction is you feel like you're going to swing the club a little bit more inside, and then this will give you proper impact.

So, if you're hitting your chip shots fat, you're too vertical.

The way to make sure that you round out the backswing is to let it travel a little bit to the inside, a little bit.

Try that golf tip on chipping the next time out.
