Master Your Distance Control Around the Greens

Want a simple chipping practice routine to try the next time you’re at the golf course? Today we keep it simple. We give you an easy to follow chipping practice routine. Show up to the course and complete it. Track your results and repeat it time and time again until you see your numbers improving! Simple right?

Here is your set up instructions:

For this drill you’ll need a hand towel or wash rag. Fold it into a 1 foot by 1 foot square target.
Then you need to find a spot in the rough alongside the practice green that you want to chip from.
Then pace out the requested distances (found below) from the spot and place a folded towel on the green marking a target zone you want to land the ball.
To make this drill more challenging over time you can shrink the size of the folded towel to make the target smaller and covering less green, but for now start with a 1ft x 1ft target zone.

Pro Tip: Chip 10 balls at a time to increase focus and create quality reps.

The Chipping Practice Routine:

  1. 30 chips to 15ft target. Record how many land on the towel target out of 30.
  2. 30 chips to a 30ft target. Record how many land on the towel target out of 30.
  3. 30 chips to a 45ft target. Record how many land on the towel target out of 30.
  4. 30 chips to a 60ft target. Record how many land on the towel target out of 30.
  5. 30 chips to a 75ft target. Record how many land on the towel target out of 30.

Overall: Total how many times you successfully landed the ball on the towel out of 150 total reps. Try to beat your score the next day.
