Stop knifing through the green with these chipping tips

European Tour player Paul Waring has a 90-second tip that will help you get the ball within one-putt range more consistently
 

All of us have struggled with our short game at one time or another, so I’ve called in European Tour player Paul Waring to give me much-needed chipping tips. I visited Paul at his home club Bromborough on the Wirral where he took me through a drill that will stop me knifing the ball through the back of the green and get it within one-putt range.

Paul Waring chipping tips: Key points

 

One of the main points Paul mentions is how you have to add more pressure to your leading side. Too many times he sees amateur golfers keep their weight on their back foot and end up scooping the ball.

Having more weight on the front foot allows you to create a descending blow into the ball.
