When it comes to a player's touch in golf, the first stroke that comes to mind is the putt. But there is another stroke where sensitivity is of great importance: the chip.
The putt is a special stroke in golf in several respects. First and foremost, it is usually the last shot, the one that finishes a hole. It can therefore be the one followed by an indescribable feeling of happiness at the "plop" with which the ball falls into the hole. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
The tee shot succeeded, with the second shot the ball was placed near the green. And now? Now the ball has to be placed as close to the hole as possible. A pitch is now the right choice.
How the golf swing should look in theory, I have described in the previous article of the series. But beyond that, there are other details to consider when driving the ball forward.
The grip is the foundation, but the swing makes the difference between good and bad golf. And therein lies the crux: How should a golf swing work so that the ball flies the way the player wants it to? Today it's getting very theoretical.
As with many sports, it's the same with golf: buying equipment and then just getting started doesn't work. The first step is not about training, but about the foundation. And in golf, that lies in the right way to hold the club.
Much can already be found on this page around the topic of golf: It describes the different types of clubs that can be found in a golf bag, it discusses their proper use, it talks about the different ways to propel the ball and finally putt it in.
