Chipping is a vital part of the game of golf.
Golfers tend to treat their short game in the same way they regard putting. Only a small percentage of recreational golfers practice pitching and chipping, with any regularity. Tournament professionals devote an enormous amount of time practicing their short game (chipping) along every other aspect of the golf swing.
They are aware accurate pitching and chipping can lead to low scoring overall, even when their long game has gone slightly off the boil. Every time you land short of the green you are in a position whereby you can lose 1 , 2, or even 3 strokes to par ,whereas a player with an excellent short game, lands his approaches close to the pin and may make par ,birdie ,or even eagle. Good short game players are a match for any opponent. In the short game section of the book, “Body Power Swing”, a new method you will be introduced to, describes a technique which will have you landing most of the time, within a 6 foot circle of the pin, giving you the opportunity to make a single putt.
