Let me guess: You have trouble making solid contact on simple chips and pitches. Seems ridiculous, right? You’ve played enough golf that you should own these little shots. But you don’t. And you know what—neither does just about every amateur golfer out there.
Why is this? It’s not hard to explain, actually. Hitting these shots fat or thin means the low point of your swing arc is coming behind the ball. You’re bottoming out too soon. That much you might know. What I bet you don’t know is, that low point falls back because of something you probably try to do: Swing your hands out toward the target. It’s logical enough. You want to hit the ball there, so you swing your hands there. But that move is destroying your short game.
