chip-in for par
par-4 18th hole at English Turn
WHEN: Final round
of the Zurich Classic
Couch has guts. When he came down with the short-game yips, he wasn't afraid to
try a cross-handed grip. Couch has always done what works, not what looks good,
which is why he still plays with an unconventional head dip when he hits his
irons. After two poor short shots at 17 Couch might've been tempted to try a
standard grip on 18, where he played from the sand and then the rough, but he
stuck to his guns and it worked.
Chip Yips Rx: Left Hand Low
grip is a great way to cure the chip yips. It helps keep the lead hand firm and
pulls the club through impact toward the target for a great finish. To go
cross-handed, use a normal chip setup: a little extra weight over the lead
foot, ball in the middle of the stance and the shaft leaning a bit forward.
Also, use a 10-finger grip so that your hands remain stable.
