#87 Web TV: A Simple Way To Improve Your Chipping

Welcome to this week’s tip. Here is a simple way in which you can improve your chipping.

Today’s tip is really designed to develop confidence in your chipping.

What I see with many golfers is that when they get close to the green and there is an opportunity to do a chip shot… there appears to be a bit of fear around that shot.

It is the fear of making a mistake… and especially if you are nervous with your chipping anyway then the fear becomes greater.

Because you get yourself caught up in that fear the mistake happens anyway… you will either duff it or you will see it sculling across the green and you will be waving bye bye to the ball… dreaded with fear that you have to go through that whole process again.

Now this problem can be fixed… but it will take some practice.

The first step for you right now is to trust yourself with this action. Golf is a mental game which I am very sure that you are aware of. So the first step is that you are going to have to learn to trust yourself.

The second step is that you are going to trust the decision that you make and trust you that you can do it.

The third step is that you are going to have to commit to your chipping shot.


When you perform a chipping action you want to ensure that you have the motion of going straight back and straight through. At the end of that chipping stroke you want to HOLD you finish!

When you are working on this action don’t worry too much about the hole… just work on getting the action right because you will need to develop confidence with this action.

So once you are set up this is what you want to do… this will be your little mantra.


That’s as simple as that.

Get out there and work on that chipping stroke… BACK – THROUGH – HOLD!

    Hi Tiff, I played the Hamilton island golf course last Saturday. To my surprise the only problem was with my putting. I thought all along it was my fairway shots. Really good to analyse the game with your keep a record sheet. I hope to have less putts this Saturday. Have fun inThailand. Xxirene

    • Tiffany Mika November 5, 2015 at 9:12 am #

      Hi Irene

      How fantastic is that… know you are seeing what is actually going on in your game. I hope Hamilton island is wonderful!!!
      Plus you are having a wonderful time with your family.

      Looking forward to hearing how your putting goes.

      See you when I return.

      Tiff 😉

    When close to the green which club do you reccommend

    • Tiffany Mika November 5, 2015 at 9:14 am #

      Hi Tippan

      It really depends on how far away from the hole you are. For really short ones it would be your SW but you really have to get out all of your irons from 7 iron through to SW and work on how far they run. You will need to work out the distances for each.

    Great tip thanks . Can’t wait to give it a go ( most of my chips end up a miss hit with no air and they race across the green and disappear in long grass!!)

    • Tiffany Mika November 5, 2015 at 9:15 am #

      Hi Kristine,

      Yes there will be a few more following this one that will most like help improve your chipping in general. But make sure you spend time working on it in practice and not expect it all to come together in comp with no practice on it.

      Tiff 🙂

  8. Lesley November 4, 2015 at 12:14 am #

    Thanks Tiff will definitely give this a go

      Great to hear. Let me know with how you go.

      Tiff 😉

  9. Dave ONeill November 4, 2015 at 2:44 am #

    Yes, good advice to commit to the shot with confidence and with almost a putting stroke, slight turn of the hips toward the target. Thanks again. Dave O.

    • Tiffany Mika November 5, 2015 at 9:18 am #

      Hi Dave

      Glad you agree… definitely a confidence stroke for sure.

      Tiff 😉

    Thanks Tiff,

    Trust and Commit – back, through and hold – those words will definitely be a little mantra in my head to get rid of those negatives thoughts as I stare down at the ball – much appreciated – Pam 🙂

    • Tiffany Mika November 5, 2015 at 5:59 pm #

      Hey there Pam

      Yes it’s good to have a mantra in place. But no more than 3 words… otherwise you put yourself off.

      Tiff 🙂
