Tips from TPI: Chipping from Tight Lies

As the world's best players prepare for the first major championship of the season at Augusta National this week, a key focus area will be chipping from the tight, closely mown areas to the fast, firm greens.

While we may never face the pressure of having to execute a perfect greenside shot on a late Sunday afternoon with a green jacket on the line, chipping from tight lies is a must-have skill to help us shoot lower scores.

In this Tip from TPI, Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman and TPI co-founder Dr. Greg Rose walk us through a lead leg only drill that stabilizes the lower body for crisper chip shots.
