Golf Pitching & Chipping Drill 110. Technique: Right Arm Only


The Right Arm Only pitching & chipping drill is a fantastic way to develop proper sequencing and timing in your pitching swing.

It will help you to build a natural, feel-based, swing that will take the club back on the correct plane and then deliver it to the ball in the most effective way possible, using the club the way it was designed and striking the ball beautifully to launch the ball high and soft from around the greens.

This will free up your imagination to develop great touch and finesse your shots, hitting it close and getting up and down from any lie.

A great pitching & chipping swing isn’t rocket science!  No special athletic ability is required to build a truly world class short game, and pretty soon you’ll find that the correct technique will feel free and natural, instinctive.

Unfortunately, the way that you’ve probably been taught to play these shots is very wrong, and it’ll take a little practice to ingrain the correct movements.

There are eight stages to this drill (yes, 8!), but don’t worry, you’ll learn them quickly, gradually stacking one on top of the other until you have the foundations of a truly great pitching & chipping & chipping technique.

This is probably the most effective pitching & chipping drill you will ever use…

…This technique will consistently deliver the club to the ball correctly, striking the ball cleanly and squarely, launching the ball with a high, soft flight so that it will roll and stop on the green with full control.  It will enable you to develop world-class touch.

We’re not trying to “save you from yourself” with a quick fix.  We’re going to make you good, very good!


There are a number of factors to work on here, but after a little practice they should all feel natural, and you’ll be able to swing correctly while still “swinging like a kid”.

The aim of the Pitch & Chip like a Champion series is to practise smart, so that you quickly get to that “natural”, non-mechanical, stage.  You can then forget about internal factors and just play shots with imagination, with finesse.

This is a great drill to include in every short game practice session.  Make a few right hand only swings, feeling the sequence of the release, absorbing the sensations, and then address the ball and let go.  No internal focus, no technique, there is only the target.  Don’t think, feel.
