Hi, my name is Michael Samaniego golf professional at Chalk Mountain Golf Course. Chalk Mountain Golf Course is a championship level golf course with 3 professional golfers, including myself. And today I'm going to talk to you about golf. Let's talk about how we chip a golf ball. When we play golf there's gonna be a circumstance that require you to chip the ball. The reason we're chipping is because our approach shot was short to the green. Now we're left with about 10, 15, 20 yards through the green to the hole, we want to get the ball close. So how do we chip? We're actually going to be my full swing aimed in the direction of our target. We're gonna blade our body slightly, a couple of degrees open, left of our target. Our hands are going to go onto the club. We're gonna press forward just slightly on our club face. Then when we execute, once again, keep the flex in your knees, keep your posture, your eye on the ball, back, and through. Hold your finish until the ball stops. Once again, keep the flex in your knees, keep your posture, your eye on the ball, back, and through.
