I have taught this method over the years to students who struggle with the conventional method. Listen up as A.J. Avoli, one of Golf Digest’s Best Young Teachers explains a different way to chip with this innovative method. He is director of instruction at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif.
Over time, a simple method for getting the ball from off the green to the flagstick fell out of favor.
I rarely see anyone chip like the late Hall of Fame golfer Paul Runyan. That’s a shame because this technique will make you more accurate around the greens with a lot less practice. Once you master the setup and learn to make a rhythmic stroke—like putting—you’ll start getting up and down more often. Let me show you how to chip old school.
I have many students who allow their weight to move over to the outside of the trail foot by allowing a hip “slide”. This now affects the way they start the downswing. They have nothing to push off with. Here, Josh Zander explains with the help of a teaching aid, how to keep this from happening in your swing!

Sean Webb of Athletic Motion Golf highlights with this awesome GEARS 3D Motion Capture how much difference there is between the amateur golfer (even a good one) and a PGA Tour player. It is very clear here that if you want to hit the ball further you must learn to turn the ribcage (torso) and the hips very fast through impact in the golf swing!
In this first video in the series, we look at the differences in body rotation between an amateur golfer who we captured in our studio and a PGA tour professional.

PGA Professional Travis Fulton shows you how to take dead aim with your short irons and ensure you’re making solid contact.
We have all experienced the situation where we need to hit a shot 165 yards to get the ball close to the hole, but our regular 7 iron goes about 160 yards, and our 6 iron goes 170 yards. Today Greg Hiller, an instructor with the Alamo City Golf Trail walks you through the steps needed to play those shots that are in between clubs and make this shot a success.
