Derrick Lekoma is a founder member of the PGA of South Africa and a South African senior tour member, who delivers around 250 lessons per month for the Gary Player Golf Experience at the World of Golf, offers a simple solution to this often-asked question:
The most common bad chipping technique I see is where a lot of weight is positioned on the right foot in the address position and the hands positioned way behind the ball and in line with the right leg. The main reason for this mistake is a player wanting to try assist the ball into the air or trying to hit the ball to high.
The correct chipping technique is where a lot of weight is positioned on the left foot in the address position and the hands positioned in front of the ball and in line with the inside of the left leg. The reason for this position is to enable the player to hit down onto the ball which in turn uses the loft of the club to get the ball up into the air.
