  4. 4. Do What Works for You, Personally
  5. 5. Remember that like all aspects of the game, chipping can also be very personal depending on who plays it, where, and how it is played. There is no single best method for chipping, as you need to consider a number of factors which will determine how well you deliver your chip shot.

  8. 8. The most important step for improving your short game via excellent chipping is to practice as much as possible. Develop a routine and religiously adhere to time lines that you set.

  9. 9. Know the Proper Club to Use
  10. 10. While you are chipping, it is very important that you are aware of the proper club to use in different situations, as this is the best way to improve your short game. For instance, the type of iron you will use on a good lie will be different from that to be used on a buried lie. Also, you will need to consider how much time you want the ball to spend in the air and how long it needs to roll towards the hole.
  11. 11. Consider Your Current Position on the Course
  12. 12. If there are obstacles or hazards such as bunker areas, water, or roughs between your current position and the green, then your chip shot has to fly over that distance, landing very close to the flagstick and roll towards the hole. Here, your swing delivery requires that you hit the ball just near the base with the club face open. Proper energy behind the swing will lift and roll the ball towards its target as desired. Lob wedges and sand wedges are advised for use in these situations, though you can use any other club you feel most comfortable with.
