I found this little tip on-line today and wanted to share it. Enjoy the tip and practice.
Go the Distance — Eddie Merrins
The average player approaches chip shots like he does putts. He's more concerned with line than speed. That is the opposite of a pro's thinking. To chip like a pro, focus on sending the ball the right distance. Start by picturing a distance target -- a line about a foot behind the hole that extends a few feet in both directions. You can stick tees in the green to represent this line. Don't worry about the length of your swing -- focus on the force required to get the ball to the line. With practice, you'll start leaving chips closer to the hole. And that means more tap-ins for par.
