Stability and balance is key to a better short game and the first simple drill you see in the video below will teach you to have better balance allowing rotation around your body. Better rotation and feel will result in more consistent strikes with your chipping, bunker shots and even your pitching.
Too many golfers make the mistake of poor stability and coming out of position to try and help the ball up when around the greens. A key for PGA Tour players is consistency and their lower bodies in the stable way they move is key to that consistency.
The first short game practice drill teaches you to have a stable lower body and learn to rotate and feel the club in your chipping action.
Simply balance on your trail leg and use the other to counter weight. You should try without a club at first. And really feel the brace and ease into slow rotation keeping your balance throughout. You can even strike balls with your left foot back to ingrain the feeling and use this as a quality practice drill to dial in stability to your strokes.
The second practice drill, well checkpoint really is to ensure that your sternum , the centre of your chest is over or even ahead of the ball at address and you turn out your lead foot a little.
After this position is set, it will allow your body and club to move through with freedom.
This will give you feel and acceleration from a consistent stable position that does not require much manipulation during the chipping action… Which of course helps your short game consistency and then your confidence resulting in lower scores.
