Grip Pressure When Chipping Into the Wind

A quick tip can easily improve your game when you’re chipping into the wind. Take your normal setup for a chip shot: ball centered and weight slightly forward. Pay attention to the grip pressure in your lead hand (your left hand for a right-handed golfer). Before you hit the shot, increase your grip pressure in the lead hand. You want to feel like the back of the lead hand stays pointed toward the target through the shot. This will help keep your hands ahead of the club face and the loft down, driving the ball through the wind.
