I hope you're having a good weekend and getting out and playing some golf. If you are, you might relate to this question I get asked a lot..

"I greatly lack confidence when chipping and I either fat or thin my chip shots. The contact is not good at all. Can you give me something to help with this problem?"

Well, if that sounds like you... the biggest reason I see golfers struggling with chipping is because they have way too many moving parts.

The action of chipping is very closely related to the action of putting.

So to help you improve your contact when chipping, I suggest you treat your chip shots as long putts. So setup to your chip shots largely the same as you would a putt. Use your putting grip when chipping and assume a very similar stance.

Then when playing the chip shot, simply take the club back and through similar to how you would if you were to putt.

By doing this you'll cut out a lot of extra movements, and this will make chipping much easier.

Now as far as club selection when doing this, I strongly suggest that you start practicing with a hybrid.

Why?

Because this will force you to do something different and learn to sweep the ball away. It's very hard to fat a hybrid when chipping with it, and this will eliminate one bad shot and give you increased confidence.

So play chip shots like a long putt and watch your results and confidence soar.

Have a great rest of the weekend.

he film starts with D. N. Tripathi (Piyush Mishra), a lyricist, who writes a biography on Sanjay "Sanju" Dutt, (Ranbir Kapoor), comparing him with Mahatma Gandhi. A flabbergasted Sanjay has him thrown out. The Supreme Court of India delivers its verdict regarding the 1993 Bombay bombings and sentences Dutt to five years jail term for violating the Arms Act, 1959. His wife Manyata Dutt (Dia Mirza) approaches Winnie Diaz, (Anushka Sharma) a London-based writer, to write Sanjay's biography and present his version of his life to the public. Although unwilling at first, Winnie is asked by Zubin Mistry (Jim Sarbh), a real estate builder, to not write the biography, which intrigues her. Winnie first interviews Sanjay, and his life is revealed in a flashback. Sanjay's father Sunil Dutt (Paresh Rawal) plans to launch his acting career in Bollywood with the film Rocky (1981). Upset over his father's controlling behaviour on set, Sanjay is encouraged by his friend Zubin "God" Mistry to try drugs for the first time. Sanjay soon discovers that his mother Nargis (Manisha Koirala) is suffering from pancreatic cancer and is taken to New York for treatment. This incident furthers his descent into alcoholism and drug addiction. He meets Kamlesh (Vicky Kaushal), a fan of Nargis, in New York, and they become quick friends. Kamlesh manages to make Sanjay stay away from his addiction; after learning of his girlfriend Ruby's (Sonam Kapoor) fixed marriage due to his ongoing drug addiction, Sanjay relapses. Kamlesh (Kamli) convinces Ruby to register marry Sanjay; but when Ruby after realising her love for Sanjay, she agrees and comes to the registration office, only to find that he is not there and on reaching Sanjay's house realizes that he is still under the influence of drugs and decides to leave him. Nargis passes away three days before the release of Rocky, which takes an emotional toll on Sanjay. S anjay agrees to attend a rehabilitation centre in the United States, and eventually recovers with the help of his father and Kamlesh. On returning to India, he meets with 'God' his friend and beats him for selling him drugs. Sanjay realizes that he was given drugs while 'God' himself was consuming glucose. The later part of Dutt's life is narrated by his now-estranged friend Kamlesh, who Winnie tracks down in New York. Kamlesh is at first reluctant since he has wasted many years of his life on Sanju but finally agrees to tell her the story. In the 1990s, Sanjay turns to bodybuilding and his career in Bollywood has greatly improved. After the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition, Sanjay acquires three AK-56 rifles to ensure the protection of his father, who had by then ventured into politics, and sister, Priya Dutt. A series of bombings occur in Bombay shortly thereafter. Sanjay is arrested in 1993 for possession of illegal arms supposedly supplied by the D-Company to be trafficked for protection during potential communal rioting after the bombings. Sanjay is convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for five years under Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA), threatening his career. Indian media labels him as a terrorist, further tarnis
