Amazing But True Golf Facts

One-Armed Wonders

If you want to improve your chipping swing with just your right hand,  assuming you are right handed.  Famed instructor Butch Harmon explains what to do.  Try dropping 10 practice balls in front of a bunker and take you most lofted club.  Now put about 70% of your weight on your forward foot.  Then take the lofted club with your right hand and hit down on the ball.  The ball pops up and onto the green.  It works every time.
