Tip of the Week 46 » 30-Yard Chip Gone Bad


Christina Ricci’s Tip of the Week
No. 40

A 30-Yard Chip
gone bad


But why?

1. My stance is too wide for this short shot, and the ball is placed toward the back of my stance. This set-up will invite the digs.

2. With this slight downslope… ball below my feet, I am aiming too far right. My body being smart, will attempt to redirect …but with this army-short-backswing and lazy feet, I have no prayer.

3. My overall tempo is quick and jerky, which sent my clubhead to the ball before my hands …a no no!

4. And lastly, I am completely flat-footed on the finish. Note my belt buckle…it hasn’t budged, indicating the dreaded “armsy lazy feet” action.

Let’s do this shot over with a better set-up.
So, let’s get to it!
