Barely Chipping

One of the hardest shots in golf is chipping off a bare lie, where the ground is hard with barely any grass.  The technique for the bare lie chip shot is not that much different than for a chip off of a fluffy lie, what makes this shot harder is that there is no room for error.  If you hit a tiny bit behind the ball or catch just the top of the ball, you’ll end up sculling the ball across the green with no distance control.

Here are three keys to hitting a chip shot off of a bare lie.  Click here to see the video tip from Karen on Golf Channel Academy.

This video tip will air on The Golf Fix on July 17th.

Spring Up Your Game-Chipping and Core Work

Although the task of chipping may not seem like a highly athletic activity, the more fit and athletic you are the smoother and more accurate you can chip.

In order to chip correctly, you need to bend from your hip sockets and hold your spine angle throughout the stroke.  If your core is weak and inflexible, then you will inevitably stand up through the shot and end up flipping at the ball with the wrists, without much control.  When your core is strong and flexible, you will be able to maintain your spine angle and control the distance with your body rotation-a much more reliable method of chipping than trying to scoop or flip the club with your hands.
