I have talked about chipping and how to improve our short game over the past while. I have adopted the technique of not forward pressing my hands past the front of the ball because it significantly changes the loft of my wedge. Not forward pressing is something I feel confident about while chipping until I saw this……
Ooop, this was not it, but I do feel this way on the golf course some times.
I obviously cannot dissect Noren’s, however it was such that he felt that he needed to push his hands past his left knee. He might has well hit a 4 iron for the amount he de-lofted his wedge. And, he chopped down on the ball, popped it up and sank it. Am I missing something or what?
There are a million different chipping techniques. Settling on one that works for you is the only real advice I can offer. It is honed through practice lots of trial and error. I can honestly say that I have worked on my short game since I started golfing. I have found some things that worked over the years and now not having a large forward press is what works for me!
I am still in the ‘not forward pressing your hands past the front of the golf ball’ team. where do you stand?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
