Tom Watson Reveals the Key Element to Good Chipping | Chipping Tips | Golf Digest





PGA Tour golfer Tom Watson says the left arm controls the chipping stroke, both back and through. If you’re struggling to hit crisp chips that track toward the hole, work on this basic principle.

In chipping, since you don’t swing it back very far
and you go forward, you wanna be on your left foot
and you want the left hip to be slightly open
when you hit through it so that your left arm
can carry through and it doesn’t break down.
You start with a slightly open position with your feet,
you close your shoulders just a little bit
to get on the line, so that when you’re coming through
your left hip will allow your left shoulder to open
and clear for your left arm to go through the ball
without any hinging.
That’s the key element in good chipping.
