Golf Tip - Chip with Light Grip

When chipping, a common mistake is too firm a grip through the shot. The firm grip can cause tension, rigidness, and jerkiness through the swing which contributes to chunked and skulled chips.

Softening the grip of your right hand if a righty, or left hand if a lefty will allow the club to swing more freely, and will increase the likelihood of the club staying on plane through the swing. The wedge will essentially do all the work for you, which it is designed to do and you can reduce any overthinking about the chip.

It takes practice and repetition, but once you get the practice under your belt with a light grip, the chip turns into a free simple swing that you will look forward to making.
