New Rules Short Game Minute – Are You a Scooper When You Chip?

Posted by on Nov 1, 2012 in New Rules Golf Academy, Short Game | 4 comments

Chipping is that little Bump and Run shot from just off the green.  It appears to be easy, but my years of teaching tells me it is hard for most golfers.  There is an instinctive desire to lift the ball and that is what I call a Scoop.

In this One Minute video I show a simple test to see if you are a Striker or a Scooper? Watch the video below and let me know what you are in the comment section.



  1. Charlie,
    Based on your video, I am a striker. Thanks.

  2. I am a striker thanks to Ben Austin, Deerfield Golf, Newark DE. I went thru the RZ with Ben and enjoyed it – he spoke of you often. Thank you.

    • Sandi,
      Thanks for the comment. Ben Austin is a very good teacher and an even better person. I am glad you found Ben and you are now enjoying golf more because of it. Keep up the good work.
