The Tummy Button Up Chipping Drill will teach you the correct move through the ball (post-impact). You’ll feel like a tour pro when you do this one simple thing. It will get your sternum (centre of gravity) moving forwards which will prevent fat and thin shots. This will be a game-changer for you!

Step 2: Tummy Button Up Drill 

Set-up: Address the ball making sure your centre of gravity is on top of or even “left” of the ball. This will ensure your divot comes “after the golf ball”. In this position it doesn’t matter if you use a lot of wrists or no wrists, the shaft will always come back to a straight line underneath your sternum (eliminating any need for manipulations).

Follow-through: On the follow-through try to get your tummy button and chest out in front of you and most importantly “up” as well (see images below). Make sure your belly button is pointing above the pin. This will allow the handle of the club to come “up and left”, which is great for swallowing out the impact zone.

It will feel weird to you because like most amateurs you almost certainly stay too low on the follow-through, ploughing the handle down and forward which causes the horrible diggy duffs and thins.
