Golf Tip The number one golf tip for learning how to control your short chip shots is this; use your putter whenever possible! The flat face of the putter gives you excellent control of the golf ball because it doesn’t give the ball any loft.

However, if you are too far from the cup and must use your wedge, maintain the y shape that your arms form with the club throughout the shot. This golf tip will force the body to treat the wedge like a putter and add a bit more control to your short chip shot.
