TIP OF THE WEEK: MAKE IT SIMPLE FOR BETTER CHIPPING.

Simplify your chipping by tossing a ball underhanded with your right hand letting it land on the green and roll to the hole. Then replicate that motion and flight with your chipping club, picking the spot to land it and letting it roll out to the hole.
