Stop Yanking Your Chips

Think "square" clubface, not "closed" clubface to produce crisp, on-target chips.
Angus Murray

The Problem: You're missing all of your chips left.

The Solution: If you consciously make an effort to square the clubface at impact, you probably do so too soon, and that closes the face and sends the ball left of your target. What you should do is concentrate on bringing the club into impact from the inside—in other words, try to make contact halfway between the back of the ball and the side of the ball facing your feet. The club will continue to close as it moves through impact, but it will be closing to a square position, rather than to a position that will send the ball left.
