Follow the slope on downhill chip shots

Published:

When faced with a chip shot from over the back of the green where the front foot is much lower than the back foot, the temptation can be to try and add loft to the clubface by hitting up on the ball.

But more often than not, this will lead to fat shot or thinned skulls that fire the ball low across the green.

As TG Elite Pro Lee Scarbrow explains in this golf video tip, the key is for the angle of the clubhead to follow the slope through impact. That way, the likelihood of a great strike is considerably increased.
