Dead Hands Chipping Style

The secret to improving quickly is mastering the short game. Chipping is a vital component of the short game. So if you’re not blowing people away with your chipping, try using the “dead-hands” approach. The swing is simpler and easier to repeat. It encourages consistency. And the ball behaves the same on almost every shot – although it doesn’t stop as quickly as with the traditional style of chipping.

Here are 5 tips on using the dead-hands approach:

* Set your weight on front foot
* Lean the shaft forward a bit
* Use shoulders and forearms
* Drag the club through impact
* Keep hands and wrist quiet

The key with the dead-hands style is keeping your wrists quiet. With the traditional style, proficient chippers often hinge their wrists abruptly on the backswing to generate clubhead speed and backspin. But if you don’t practice or play a lot, it’s hard to develop consistency with this approach. Enter the dead-hands style.

First, take your normal address position, then set your weight forward. Lean the shaft forward slightly, so that your hands are just ahead of the ball. Now, using just your shoulders and forearms, “drag” the club through impact. All your hands do is hold onto the grip through contact and beyond. And don’t break your wrists.

The dead-hands style eliminates the sudden flick that weekend golfers often make when using the traditional approach to chipping. With this style, both the wrists and hands stay quiet.

You don’t have to wait until you`re on the practice green to try this approach. You can practice it in your backyard. And you can practice it during the winter. Chipping doesn’t involve a big swing and if you get proficient chipping over frozen turf, you’ll be dynamite when the whether warms up. Improving your short game is the fastest way of knocking strokes off your golf handicap, bar none.
