Making practice swings instead of hitting balls is a better way to improve your swing technique.  If you are trying to learn the swing or make a swing change, rehearsing the move without hitting a ball will assure that you are actually doing the correct move.  Repeating the motion that you want to achieve will help ingrain the move into your real swing.

Use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to practice everyday.  If you don’t have room to swing a regular golf indoors or you can’t make it to the golf course or driving range, use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to practice anywhere and at anytime.

Today we focus on Chipping-

Although the task of chipping may not seem like a highly athletic activity, the more fit and athletic you are the smoother and more accurate you can chip.

In order to chip correctly, you need to bend from your hip sockets and hold your spine angle throughout the stroke.  If your core is weak and inflexible, then you will inevitably stand up through the shot and end up flipping at the ball with the wrists, without much control.  When your core is strong and flexible, you will be able to maintain your spine angle and control the distance with your body rotation-a much more reliable method of chipping than trying to scoop or flip the club with your hands.

Chipping Drill with Cardiogolf Slope

A chip shot involves precision to control the correct yardage and distance to leave the shortest possible putt. Because this shot involves a relatively short swing, there is little time for compensations, therefore the set-up and the fundamentals need to be correct.  The key is to find a way to control the clubhead with the body, not the hands, while hitting the ball the correct distance.  Here are a few fundamentals to help you with your chipping technique:

  • Less air time, more roll – example: roll balls can control roll more than air
  • Can use putting grip: to keep wrists firm
  • Feet close together-Keeps body more quiet
  • Weight towards front leg-hands pressed forward
  • Ball position is in the center or towards back foot depending on the lie
  • Use a putting stroke-straight back and through
  • Try to achieve a slight downward brush
  • Use slightly tighter grip pressure
  • Hold finish-don’t let wrists flips

For years, I have been using a traditional step in my Cardiogolf routines and exercises. Although effective, I felt it was important to design a step that simulated a fairway to make it more ‘golf-like.’

You almost never have a flat lie on the golf course, so it is important to practice your swing on sloping lies to develop feel and stability. The Cardiogolf ‘Slope’ is curved like a fairway slope. You can vary the angle you place your foot to practice varies sloping lies.

I developed the Cardiogolf ‘Slope’ to help golfers practice uphill and downhill lies, but it is also a great tool for exercise. You can do a variety of traditional low-impact exercises as well as strength, balance, core and even upper body exercises.
