Correct Ball Position on Chip Shots
Good chippers play the ball back in the their stance and make clean contact while the club is still traveling downward. Poor chippers usually play the ball too far forward, leading to a fat or skulled shot as the clubhead bottoms out too soon. There's a simple way to ensure your ball position is correct: Set your feet dead square at address, so the ball is opposite the laces on your right shoe (1) Then, keeping your heels on the ground, pivot your toes to the left (2), so your stance is open. By relating ball position to your heels, the ball will be in the correct spot every time--promoting the descending blow you need to chip it close.
