Soft Grip When You Chip

Successful short game shots around the green start with the proper fundamentals. Always use a soft grip, when you chip. Hold the golf club with the same amount of pressure that you would use holding a brand new tube of toothpaste. Imagine squeezing just a little bit of toothpaste out, onto a toothbrush, using both hands with equal pressure. The softer, the better. Too much grip pressure makes your muscles tense and your chipping stroke too jerky. Your chipping stroke needs to be smooth, like your putting stroke and soft hands are the key.
