Justin Rose - chipping tip

If you're preparing for a weekend medal, 20 minutes spent practising your chipping before you go out will prove invaluable. Justin Rose shows you how.

Often your best option around the green is to hit a chip and run. Whenever you chip it is always a good idea to focus your aim on the area where you want to land the ball. Visualising this spot is the key to judging the pace of the shot. I use the following practice drill designed to focus my mind on this spot.

Place a ball on a tee, on the edge of the green where you are looking to land your chip. Hit a series of shots, trying to land the ball at the foot of the tee, knocking the other ball off its' perch. Hitting the tee is a tough task but you should notice that any near misses will run out and finish close to the hole.
