    Hi Ross, is there a reason why you don’t advocate the same move/s for chipping, namely the left shoulder as the initiator of the backswing and forward swing versus doing the same thoughts in the full swing?
    I find it easier to coordinate this focus on just the left shoulder on the full swing than trying to get my right hip around the body which sometimes doesn’t feel as natural and fluent?

    The chip shot is a much shorter shot and does not require more than a simple up & down movement (like a putting stroke) to lift the ball up a bit out of the grass, land it on the green and get it rolling. For control and repeatability, there’s no need to move anything else to produce the result we need. The shoulders can move up & down …or they can also move around the spine for much longer pitch shots or even for the full swing. This is why there are two different ways to move the shoulders to produce shots depending on the situation.
