Phil Mickelson has been at the centra of a lot of controversial golf stuff over the past year which, if you’ve landed here at australiangolfdigest.com.au, you probably know by now.
But it seems like Mickelson is extending — or at least trying to extend — the olive branch to those golfers who may have soured towards him over the last year by offering something we all need: A good chipping tip. Watch below:
It is, effectively, a three-step guide to hitting a simple chip.
1. Weight on front leg
This helps get the leading edge of the club back into the ground, lefty says.
2. Hands forward at setup
Helps you strike the ball with a descending blow, and prevents thin shots.
3. Turn chest away on the backswing
This prevents you from getting too steep, and hitting chunks.
