Video: Use cadence to stop decelerating on chips

RSS

The kiss of death on chips and pitches is deceleration. If you slow the club down through the hitting zone, you'll hit chips and pitches fat or thin. To make clean contact, the club has to keep accelerating through impact.

How can you avoid this fundamental mistake?



In this video segment, golf legend Johnny Miller answers that question from Michael Breed, host of The Golf Fix.

Miller provides a simple answer: cadence. Miller then demonstrates the 'one-two' cadence on the backswing and downswing. The idea is to focus on tempo and finish the swing as you finish the count. If you do, solid contact will take care of itself.
