Set Up Hit Chip Shots Like A Pro

When you’re setting up for a chip shot, you want to start by lining up square to the ball instead of the commonly-taught open stance.

In order to predict the first bounce better and use the club the way it was designed, you’ll want to land the club in the shallow part of the swing instead of a steeper part, which leads to a more middle or slightly forward ball position.

With a little bit of hip hinge, flexed knees and a square address position, you’re ready to employ soft elbows – one of the characteristics of a great short-game player.
