In this tip I show you a very specific chipping ratio which, if followed, will tell you exactly what club you should be using to chip with. This is very important because it eliminates the guess-work in your chip shots. If you have trouble remembering this simply write it down and take it to the course with you until you have it mastered.

    Hi Paul, just a suggestion. use the term initial length for the first distance, and then ratio of that length to the total distance. Greatest tip I have ever seen and brought me from a 7 down to a 3.4 in one season. thx Don

      Don, Thanks for the suggestion. I can’t re-shoot everything now though. I think people get the idea. This is a huge part of the game. Hopefully others will work on it too. Keep up the good work.

    Paul, about chipping. What if you are further from the green. How do the ratios come in to play if you are, say, about 15 yards off the green. In your example you hit all the chips from the same poisition. Also I need to know when the weather will be good enough for me to come to your school after the first of the year. As I told you before my working days will be over the last day of December and I want to improve my game. Send me an email when you have time to answer my questions. Turn, turn, turn. I am working on the hip turn but it is not coming together very well with the swing. It seems to be all about timing/ Stay well.

      I did a tip on this here:

      When To Pitch: http://ignitiongolf.com/chipping-pitching

      You need to figure out the ratios. Even if you are farther away you still measure to the front of the green. If you do not have enough green to work with you will be pitching. If you can roll it then do so.

    My drives are much more consistent and longer now that I have taken my arms out of the picture and doing most of the other things you recommend.
    My chipping remains a challenge. I get the idea of which club to use for the ratios of 1:2 1:3 etc. I get the idea of how to hold it and swing to the back leg and forward. What do I do differently when the ratio is 1:2 and the distance to the point of landing (just a yard or so inside the green) is 4 yards vs the distance to that landing point is further away such as 12 yards. Do I do something different in the swing through to get it to go further to the landing spot before it rolls the 1:1 or 1:3 distance? Thanks, June

      June, You just need to do a little longer backswing and hit it harder to get it on the front of the green. There is no other change.
