Golf Pitching & Chipping 103. Technique: Posture and Balance


The correct posture, weight distribution and balance are crucial elements of great pitching & chipping – get them right and you’ll be able to develop a pitching & chipping stroke that has zero excess movement and enables you to deliver the club to the ball accurately and consistently, you’ll have great touch around the greens, and you’ll knock it close every time.
