Chipping Cure for Chili Dips

From Jonathan Yarwood On August 24, 2022
Ground contact is a critical and often under-appreciated key to the short game. How your wedge interacts with the turf can make or break any finesse shot, but it's particularly important when you're facing... a tight lie. Strike the ground even a fraction of an inch behind the ball and you could experience the dreaded chili-dip, a fat shot that barely advances your ball and which can be truly humiliating.

Titleist staff member Jonathan Yarwood has seen many players struggle with the chili dips and in this video he identifies two of the main culprits for these ugly shots. If you frequently chunk pitches and chips, odds are good that one of two things is happening – your trail arm is drifting and not synced up with the turn of your trunk or your leg action is collapsing rather than helping you to rotate through the shot. Fortunately these are both skills that you can improve with minimal effort. All you need is a golf glove under your trail arm and a clearer understanding (which Jonathan provides) of how your lead leg extends and clears on finesse shots.
