Four Week Chipping Programme: Week 1 - The Chip and Run

By: Phillip Akers | Thu 06 Jul 2017 | Comments ()


Although the chip and run shot may look straight forward and simple to play, however the wrong execution or poor strike can result in a whole host of problems around the green. 

Phil Akers, a senior teaching professional at the Belfry believes this is an incredibly important shot for any amateur golfer to have in their locker. Phil has a few tips to help you practice and perfect this shot type. 

  • Club selection is crucial, avoid high lofted clubs and instead choose lower lofted wedges or low-mid irons, for example Phil is using an 8 iron in this video. 
  • Stance is also important, making sure you are narrow with the ball placement in the centre favouring the right side. 
  • Keeping your hands forward through the shot so you do not add loft to the shot. 
  • Making sure you swing at a controlled and consistent pace. 

Phil Akers believes that all of these factors will help you improve this delicate shot to improve your short game shots around the green.
