Another great chipping tip from the Golf Channel Amateur Tour! Enjoy! I totally agree with it. (Photo by Warren Little/Getty Images...couldn't resist putting a Rory McIlroy pic up. :) )
Maintain the triangle for consistent chips
Many chips are missed because a player tries to life the ball in the air by scooping with the right hand. The common result is to skull the ball across the green or to hit it fat. To end scooping, imagine that your arms and shoulders form a triangle, with the club an extension of your left arm. Maintain the triangle during the chip shot by using little or no wrist action. The clubhead's loft will propel the ball into the air and you will strike the ball crisply and more consistently.
