  • - Hi Adam Bazalgette here,

  • founder of Scratch Golf Academy.

  • Today's subject, how to chip,

  • specifically though for beginners.

  • (upbeat music)

  • So how to chip for beginners.

  • I'll show you a few things in this video

  • I think will make it simple,

  • help you to make good contact with the ball.

  • A few principles that hopefully will make it easier for you.

  • Even if you're just struggling with your chipping,

  • hopefully this will be helpful to you.

  • If you like the video,

  • please subscribe to the channel here at YouTube.

  • Have a lot of content.

  • ScratchGolfAcademy.com is my home website,

  • lots of content for you there.

  • Okay, let's get started.

  • (club taps) (ball thumps)

  • So let's assume this is a chip.

  • A chip is a pretty much a running shot near the green.

  • A pitch would be a bigger shot

  • where you're typically using a more lofted club.

  • Not gonna get into that now.

  • Let's assume one other thing as well,

  • and that is we have a pretty clean good lie.

  • I have a perfect lie here.

  • We're not digging it out of a rough

  • or out of any unconventional situation.

  • (club taps) (ball thumps)

  • Now as you're getting started

  • around the green as a newer golfer

  • or as someone just trying to build some confidence,

  • I'd recommend have two favorite clubs.

  • One, you're most lofted club, could be sand or lob wedge.

  • That's the one you'd need

  • to get over something and stop the ball.

  • But for your basic chipping club, something less lofted.

  • I've chosen a 9-iron.

  • I think that's a good kind of middle-of-the-road choice.

  • It could be eight, could be wedge.

  • Get to know that club.

  • Get to know how it feels,

  • how to make contact with it,

  • and most importantly, how the ball reacts off the club.

  • Once you're really good with it,

  • you can branch out and try some other clubs,

  • but I think you'll get more confidence that way.

  • As we start to look at the setup itself,

  • very, very important that you remember

  • wherever your body center is in a chip,

  • generally speaking is about where the bottom

  • of that swing will be before starting up.

  • We want that just a little in front of the ball,

  • so make sure as you begin to build your setup,

  • plumb-bob from your shirt buttons,

  • that's about your body center.

  • And I can see for me here that

  • that's just a little bit in front of the ball.

  • As I say, it makes the difference

  • in how the club bottoms out and interacts with the turf.

  • Now the sure way to know if you're in the right relationship

  • to the ball with your center

  • is that if you make a few practice strokes next to the ball,

  • your bottom out point should be more here.

  • Now certainly you may skid onto the grass

  • a fraction coming into the ball,

  • but the real bottom out point is about there,

  • and I should be able to do that with literally no effort

  • again, if I'm set up properly.

  • Now another way you can make this shot simpler

  • is by going with something closer to one lever.

  • And what I mean by that is

  • the shaft more lined up with the forearms.

  • It doesn't have to be precisely lined up

  • with the forearms, but more or less,

  • and that will mean that you'll probably grip it

  • a little more in the palms of the hands,

  • less down in the fingers.

  • And what that does is it just adds stability.

  • As the body moves back and forward,

  • it's a much more stable unit.

  • When you add a bend in there, there's a lot more mobility.

  • Good for speed, not so good for stability.

  • Let's try one here.

  • It feels like the club's a little taller.

  • (club taps) (ball thumps)

  • Now you may find when you do this

  • that the club will be slightly up on its toe

  • with the heel off the ground.

  • That's okay, a little bit of that won't hurt you,

  • and you can adjust this to suit your own taste.

  • Just get a feel for it that feels stable to you.

  • Make sure though, when you lift the club up a little bit,

  • you don't lift your arms and shoulders,

  • create tension there.

  • Stay nice and relaxed and just get the club up a bit

  • where it feels nice and firm.

  • So continuing the setup here,

  • make sure your shorten down on the club.

  • You've got the look that we had from that angle.

  • We've talked about the shirt buttons.

  • Get your feet nice and close together,

  • and at your discretion, maybe turn them in

  • and preset them a little bit for impact there.

  • Just makes it a little simpler to have a good impact.

  • I like that feel.

  • There's my relationship.

  • Now I feel like I'm really in my impact position.

  • And before you hit any shots

  • when you're out on the golf course,

  • just get several strokes just to rehearse it.

  • Not only the contact with the ground and the motion,

  • but of course the feeling you think you'll need

  • to get the right speed.

  • And in terms of the motion,

  • best thought you can have is

  • it's more like a putting stroke.

  • Use your trunk and let the club just respond

  • to that back and forth.

  • Make sure though, as you do it, you're not wooden or stiff.

  • Relax your arms a little bit, get soft,

  • and get a little feel in there,

  • but it's very much more of a body stroke,

  • not a hand stroke.

  • And once you're confident, go ahead and get set up.

  • (club taps)

  • Just make your stroke.

  • Solid contact, pretty easy.

  • So let's try one more shot here.

  • Going to get my setup there,

  • nice and relaxed, club up a little bit.

  • I feel I'm in a good relationship to the ball.

  • And again, I can just feel the simplicity of that motion,

  • the economy of the motion.

  • And just gonna try to give it a little

  • (club taps)

  • bump onto the green there.

  • They're really not super difficult shots.

  • Once you've got some confidence in that,

  • once contact is established

  • and you know the shot will branch out,

  • maybe include another chipping club in your repertoire

  • or maybe adjust style a little bit for different situations.

  • I hope that was helpful for you, how to chip for beginners.

  • Hopefully that gets you off on the right foot

  • and you can go practice that stuff

  • and then make progress and branch out

  • a little bit from there.

  • Again, if you liked the video,

  • please subscribe to the channel.

  • Would love to have you go to ScratchGolfAcademy.com,

  • have full courses in everything there, including chipping,

  • and would love it if you'd check that out.

  • Thanks for watching the video.
