yoursticks inside of you. You feel like when you get past that all-important chip hit, maybe at the end of the round to win an entire match or just play a really good round. scoring you start to break it down you start to thin it out hands get real tight everything gets twitchy and shaky and fast when you really want to be smooth and confident with the ball it just doesn't seem like it's possible well actually there is some very common instruction and if you follow this it works really well but only for a certain type of token.
I'm going to talk about what type of tile it is when you can use that type of shot and how if you try to apply that same technique to everyone.

I would love to hear from you. it can really hurt your other shots and that's what I call the chip putt and that's where the idea is we're going to use his putting stroke to hit this chip shot there's a variety of ways we
haveto do this but this it actually works really well if we do this very close to the grain, so if I'm only 20 or 30 feet from this hole it can be very easy to just put the ball there and be pretty consistent with it, so how does this work? exactly right number one you want to take your putting position you want this to feel like a putting stroke so as I set up this golf ball I'm going to take the width of my position that I would normally take if I'm putting the second piece here it is instead of have my normal grip and have this shaft angled a little bit here I'm going to lift this stick up a little bit so now the toe is down and the heel is up a little bit on the ground and what this does if this takes this edge of attack of this or the flat part of the sole of the stick and angle it up like this, now you're much less likely to grab onto part of the turf if you just touch your toe, it's going to brush through the grass, you'll have a lot less chance of getting stuck and digging in those sorts of things, so with those hands up that helps you glide across the turf a little easier.
A third thing here I want to use a fairly low Club so I'm not using a sand wedge, a pitching wedge, nothing like that, I'm really using like a 7 iron, an 8 iron, a 9 iron somewhere to get these little putt chips and then eventually I'm really locking my legs when I putt One thing all great putters have in common is that they don't really move the lower body so while doing this little chip putt I don't move my knees not at all they stay perfectly still you're locking your hands and arms you're leaning forward a little bit and you can imagine all of this is locked and all I'm doing is going back and forth that stays locked I rock it back and forth and that's going to be like a putt only we're cutting the green now that can be very helpful these are pretty easy shots not that hard when you're only twenty or thirty feet away but there are some issues with this as well as you If you start to get a bit far from the green you won't be able to hit them as close doing this and this is the reason why when I put if you think about even a fairly long putt maybe I'll take my putter back here. it's going to be a pretty long putt as I come back and that's about as far as I'm comfortable keeping my knees still keeping my body still and still hitting this putt good if I get rid of this 7 iron and maybe I need to hit it for something or I need the ball to come up a little bit faster all of a sudden I switch to my sand wedge or lob wedge and do the same technique the ball just isn't going to go very far oh it's that hit and run shot or that locked stroke idea works great when I have to putt, so if I just take it a couple of feet back and drive it across a couple of feet like I would a putter, I can really hold still with my lower body I can lock up with my upper body I can take a 7-iron an 8-iron a hybrid just make the ball hit there and it's so easy but at some point we get far enough from the green or we have trouble along the way imagine there's a bunker here on our way we had to hit it over that bunker to where that little short bump and run locked in putting style this is not going to work and if we tried to get the same idea and had that tight approach that pudding type approach and we tried to to make it work when we're further out it all falls apart so now if I'm further out here and I have my sandwich let's imagine there's a bunker or there's a rough or something where I have to get the ball onto the green here and now so All of a sudden I'm trying to hold my lower body still I'm trying to lock everything out here on the top seal I just can't make that happen if I really use the technique the right way the ball won't go far enough , so what you end up doing is getting pretty nervous with your hands and wrists because you're trying to get more energy. and now all of a sudden we end up with this kind of jerky shot, you know, Jabby type that can easily shoot over the green or be way below the green. now here the main difference a style the style of putting it's all locked in we're trying to control this style we're loosening everything up so if you pay attention to my knees and what you'll see with all the big chippers they're gonna let these knees turn so they don't you are trying to block them.
I'm letting them flow it's always going to shoot the golf ball onto the green so if I do this look at my knees here first and then we'll get into the details so here I'm going to let it all go on let my body acquire momentum and now I can just ball up there it's not very hard I'm letting my body create the momentum so with this and one of the reasons why this is so much better with your hands and arms and you don't sit like you're Jabby as I let my body rotate my hips are rotating my chest is rotating and that's creating momentum if I just hold this stick very gently in my hands now all of a sudden it's creating momentum that's going to hit the ball if I try to block that I have to create that speed with my hands and arms and things get a little crazy so that's the first key there. chippers doing this and I'm also going to open my feet up a bit towards the target which makes it easier for me to open up and Pivot through this shot which will allow me to use my body to create that momentum.
Instead of locking my wrist and keeping it really tight and stiff with my hands higher up, I'm going to go ahead and slide my hands. freely and i let my wrists stay very soft while i do this because i go back and through it i could see my knees pivot and everything else just goes by the wayside i get a little bit of wrist action i get a little bit of a bit of wrist completely alright I'm not trying to block it and I got it I'm letting my body momentum create that speed create that momentum so you can see it's very easy to hit these clean when you let your body do the work so those are the main keys there when we're hitting the putt type of shot which is completely fine if you're really close to the green and you can make this shot that just comes back here and comes back here at some point that's not going to be a big enough shot or at some point we're not going to being able to roll the ball along the ground because there's a bunker in the road or there's roughness in the road and we're going to have to hit a bigger shot at that point when you hit that bigger shot instead of trying to block the balls. things in things free ankles together feet open towards target my body builds momentum and my wrists stay loose now that we've talked about how to free up your swing and feel confident with any shot because now my body is building momentum how we control the distance maybe have a 20 yard shot a 50 yard shot a 70 yard shot how do i know how far to hit that right? i have a great system called the clock system and i'm going to go over that video a preview of that video here in just a second if you want to mark those wedge distances all you need to do is click on the card that appears on your screen or the link below in the description and I'll go over the watch movement with you.
The pitch shot could be anywhere from the green to probably 50 or 60 yards or so and that's what you'll want. do when you want to get a little more spin and get the ball a little higher in the air we're going to go ahead and let the wrist fit a little more have a little more club action get the ball to go a little higher in the air with a little more spin, so let me go ahead and describe what a good pitch shot is so you know what you're really looking for. I make contact. I want to get very shallow to the ground so I don't want to take too much of a chop.
I don't want to hit the ground when the club comes loose and we have a flat spot where the club travels very level with the ground for five or six inches on these pitch shots so when that happens let me go and exaggerate as my hand goes down my hands they're close to the ground as this stick gets closer and closer to the ground my hands move up as the stick moves down now you're looking at them having this flat spot that
