#24 Web TV: Chipping Over Obstacles

This week we are going to look at chipping over an obstacle.

We are always encountering obstacles on the golf course so now we are going to look at how we can overcome some.

Perhaps you have a problem getting the ball over the bunker? If you had something in the way that you could practice chipping over would that help you?

Well, I have come up with an obstacle that I believe will help you tackle getting the ball over those bunkers.

You see if we practice with some sort of obstacle in the way, that is more challenging, when you come to say chipping over the bunker it will then be a breeze.

Have a look at this video above and see how you can overcome an obstacle on the golf course by practicing this drill in your back yard.

Once you have done this I would love to hear how you went with the practice.

Did this tip help you?

    Hi Tiffany

    I’ve followed your instructions but the balls skew off to the right (due to the open clubface maybe?) When i keep the clubface square it works OK but not as much height. I found if I open my stance slightly then it works better but some still skew off to the right (like a shank) – but I believe it is from the open face. The clubface is not open to any extreme.

    Thanks

    Cheryl

      Hi Cheryl

      Keeping the clubface square is good. You can still get height if your club is in line with the centre of your chest and you keep your wrists firm and not moving at all through the shot.

      Even though you have opened your stance which is fine to do, only slightly but with your club make sure the club and arms go straight back and not around your body. If you take the club straight back and straight through it will work. If you take your club back around your body then when you bring your club back to make contact with the ball because the line is incorrect it will then cause it to shoot off to the right. If you are still having problems send me a video of what you do then I can have a look and see what is happening.

      Kind regards

      Tiffany 🙂
