I have tried many chipping drills. Some have helped and others…..well, not so much. I do support trying to use the same chipping technique for most shots around the green, but switch clubs to achieve the desired results. I have tried many different drills to hone my chipping skills and I have found one that I use repeatedly throughout the season. It works well for short game and I think it will help yours as well.
I actually use a 7 iron instead of an 8 iron. And I use a scorecard from three, six and nine steps. I also mix up the length of fringe I need to hit over and sometimes land in the fringe. Basically, I teach myself distance control using very different scenarios. I am happy to say that this drill does pay off and lowers my golf scores.
This chipping drill will help build a strong foundation for your short game. If you beginning your journey, I recommend that you try this drill.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

I use a putting stroke with the gap wedge held toe down. And I don’t bother marking a spot, I just choose one. Of course, I can’t see as well if I hit it or not that way, but the end result is what I’m wanting so I’m ok with missing the mark as long as the end result is close.

The mark is designed, as you have figured out, to train our minds and bodies to hit the ball a specific distance in a particular manner. The final results is what counts, but for the the beginner, hitting the mark and watching the result is very important.
