What Should The Movement Of A Golfers Arms Be During Golf Chip Shots (Video)

What should the movement of a golfers arm be during a golf chip shot? Now when you’re hitting a chip shot one of the most important things to first do, is get your set up correctly. If you don’t set up correctly no matter how you move your arms the technique will be compromised. So as you get set for a normal standard chip where I want to just get the ball rising into the air and landing on the green and then rolling out to the target, get the feet slightly close together, hips and feet slightly open to the target, club face square to where you want it to land, and the weight and the hands slightly ahead of the ball. This will cause a slightly descending blow; will cause predictable spin, and hopefully a consistent shot. When you get into this position, the way you want to be moving your arms is in connection with the shoulders. If you can see here address my arms and my shoulders form a triangle. And now to the bottom of that triangle is my slightly lent shaft towards the target. If you take that into position my arms and the club forms a y shape.

So I’ve got this y shape or the triangle and the shaft leaning slightly towards the target. What I want to do on the back swing is I just want to move my shoulders and I want to maintain this triangle, I want to maintain this y shape into this position. So you see my left arm is straight, my right arm is straight and it’s all still connected to my shoulders. From there all I need to do is move my shoulders back through the ball, hit the same position of impact and then keep that y shape – keep that triangle shape through impact. If you can keep that position everything will stay connected and the shot will be very, very consistent. Not only will it be consistent in strike, it will be consistent in the amount of spin it has once it lands. So get yourself set up correctly, keep the triangle, keep the Y shape when you are swinging and you will see consistent chip shots begin to appear.
