Master Your Short Game with the 24-Ball Golf Drill

Here's a quick and easy short game drill to dial in your chipping.

  1. Find a chipping location approximately 10 yards off the green.
  2. Place 24 golf balls at your feet (see GimmePro).

The Drill

  1. First 9 Balls: Target Variety

    • Aim at the three pins on the green.
    • Hit three consecutive shots per pin:
      • One high shot (lob or flop shot).
      • One stock shot (standard chip).
      • One low shot (bump and run).
    • Repeat this sequence for all three pins.
  2. Next 9 Balls: Target Variety with Different Pins

    • Again, target the three pins.
    • Hit one shot per pin (total of three shots):
      • All three shots low (focus on distance control)
      • Then repeat 3 shots mid height, and high floppers 
  3. Final 6 Balls: Precision

    • Two shots per pin.
    • Try to make the shots:
      • Aim for the center of each pin.
      • Focus on accuracy and landing close to the hole.

This is a quick drill that will dial in your flow and get your hands warmed up. Focus on controlling the clubface through impact, and managing your tempo
