Farrking typical. Try to start a farrking useful thread actually ABOUT golf, one that might actually help peeps play better, intended to be a useful source of key information for both newbs and more advanced, possibly for months or even years to come, and it gets farrking overrun by farrking amature farrking botanists and farrking landscapers and herbalists prattling on about their farrking hedges and perennials. Farrking give up. 😁

Getting back on track ...........

 

One tip that I always try to remember when faced with delicate chip shots ........ is to use the body turn to power the shot, and not the arms.

 

Using the body turn, for me at least, leads to much crisper and more consistent contact, and ensures I don't stall on the shot, or just jab at it. :)

and herein lies why golf is such an amazing challenge. For me, I am the complete opposite. For delicate chips I want as little moving parts as possible so I am only using my arms that swing from my shoulders. The least amount of moving parts the stiller I am, the stiller I am the less chance of any mishits. By having little body movements, I know I need to get my hands through to make the shot as they are the only thing getting the ball there. 

 

Is one of us wrong? nope not at all, but as a tip you can either take his or mine for your own game to see what works for you

Never understood this. Golf must be the only thing where the idea of " if you want to do something accurately and carefully you use your big muscles" is used.
Johnny I want you to colour carefully between the lines
Ok then. I'll hold the pencil and move my shoulders only
See what I mean?
I'm just pissed off OK? Don't ask.

I've only ever heard people discussing the use of larger muscles in order to generate power.

Even with this said, I doubt anyone advocates only using those muscle groups.

It's kinda hard to swing a golf club just using your glutes, quads and lats.

What about putting by just rocking your shoulders?
