As spring inches closer on the calendar, we know a lot of golfers are dusting off their clubs and thinking about hitting the links! Mark Love, executive director of the Davis Love Foundation, recently shared a few tips on chipping around the green. Below is an excerpt, but you can read the full post here. Hopefully, your game will benefit from Davis’ insights!
“Two of the most common errors which cause poor chipping are an improper set-up, and an over-active right hand (or left hand for our lefties). A great drill to do to help with these issues is to practice some chips using your lead arm. Left arm only for right-handed players; right arm only for the lefties.”
This week’s action on the PGA TOUR is taking place in California. Our newest Team RSM member, Andy Sullivan, (thanks to RSM UK) is playing in the Northern Trust Open. Joining him at Riviera Country Club is past RSM Classic champions Ben Crane (2011), Chris Kirk (2013) and Robert Streb (2014). With an early start, Andy teed off at 7:01 a.m. PT; Ben was at 11:51 a.m.; not too far behind is Chris at 12:12 p.m.; and Robert teed off at 12:23 p.m. All players will begin from tee No. 10 today (Thurs., Feb. 18). Best of luck to all of them this weekend!
