This story is for you if...
• You're an inconsistent chipper.
• You have trouble keeping your chips on target.
You catch a lot of chips either heavy or thin, and even when you do catch them crisp, they stray off line.
Chip shots are specialty shots, so you have to rearrange your address position using the steps shown at right. If you use your standard full-swing setup, you're making things hard on yourself.
On the practice tee, sole your wedge on the ground. Grab your putter and do the same.
