Current Golf Tip: Use a broom to practice your putting, chipping and overall short game stroke.

Take a broom and grip it as you would your club. Choke down enough to fit the handle under your targetside armpit. Now go ahead and make some practice swings. You'll notice that the handle may hit you on your target side chest. The broom handle tucked under your arm keeps your wrists from moving, like they are in a cast. To simulate a putt stand upright and make a pendulum stroke. For a chip do the same but place more weight on your front foot. This will make you sweep more up and down which is crucial in getting natural lift and consistency  to your chip shots.
