The Correct way for Senior Golfers to play a Running Chip Shot (Video)

Okay so you've done all the hard work. You worked your way up the fairway from the team ground. You got too short of the greening. You face whoever a running chip shot. But how do you play it? Well, it's a lot easier than you think. Well, first of all let's select the club to play a chip and run so it’s a running chip shot you can play a 6, 7 or 8 or any of those clubs really nice and short lofted. We set ourselves up to the ball and think – think about what you want. Do you want the ball to run or do you want the ball to stop or do you want the ball to run? Let's just put the ball slightly behind center.

And by putting the ball slightly behind center is actually going to make me catch the ball first so to catch the ball first, the ball will then in part with forward spin. So put the ball slightly further back in your stance. Put the weight 64 to on your left hand side and from this position we're to kind of keep you heading the central steady position. At no time do I want you to keep your head down, golfers say this all the time; it’s bad terminology. I don't think you'll hear any coach is saying that. Keep your head central. Keep your weight 60-40 and your weight slightly behind the center. The ball position is slightly behind center and from here only to do is swing with your shoulders. Keep your arm straight. Your hands in front and from here keep the club below so back and through and because the ball was back. The ball is going forward. It's now rotating. It's still rolling up to the green that's how you play a running chip and the shots. If you wanted to play one we'll just be a little bit more sort of bitten soft landing. It’s the same shot, but we put the ball further forward. By putting the ball further forward we actually hit the ball slightly on the up and the ball now starts to rotate ever so slightly, but so there you go. A two in one golf lesson for you.
