Inconsistent chip shots generally come from 2 things. Overactive hands (flipping) and having our weight back or falling back. To see if you can contact your chip shots a bit more crisply I'd like you to try 2 things.  #1 - Get your weight 100% on your front foot. Put your back foot up on the tip toe so you will place no weight on it. Keep your head over your front foot as well and make sure that your head and upper spine do not fall backwards during the swing.  #2 -...
  A full follow through is great but you wanna make sure that you never lose your original spine angle at impact. This is the main cause of topping the ball. Here is a drill you might like:  Description: The Cheek Down Drill teaches you how to maintain the posture you establish at address through impact. This helps to eliminate topped and blocked shots. Summary:1. Start by taking a few practice swings and as you come through impact turn your rear cheek towards the ground....
  The Under the Pole drill is designed to help you prevent a hook by avoiding a sever inside/out swing path. Summary: 1. Take a set up with a short or mid iron at first. Then take a driveway pole (swing plane pole) and place it outside the toe of your club and about a foot down the target line.2. If you have been hitting a true hook you have been swinging too far inside/out coming into the ball. Your goal now is to learn to come in on a proper arc and finish on a proper...
In any case stay loose, positive and focusing on the next shot ahead. 
Duck hooks are traditionally inside/out hooks meaning that the golf club is coming from too far inside/out through impact. Coupled with a strong grip or a shut club face, the result can often be severe. Let´s first check your grip position. Make sure to place the club more in your fingers than in your palms. You will have more flexible wrists that can generate high club head speed and the club is less likely to move around in your hands like it will tend to in your palms....
I have actually never heard that teeing it low gives you better control. Generally you would only tee the ball low to hit under the wind. Studies have been done to show that teeing the ball higher results in greater distance and doesn't cause a loss in accuracy. The newer drivers have higher sweet spots and hitting it higher in the face results in better launch angles and spin. The best way to get control on any golf shot is to hit the sweet spot and hit it consistently....
Not having a solid follow through usually has to do with not having a correct release. The proper way to release the golf club is with your pivot and the centrifugal force it creates. When you are swinging down and starting with your hips and lower body, you are creating acceleration that will then be transferred into your shoulders and then your arms. One body part fires after another. If your arms and wrists are relaxed and being pulled by your pivot they will release...
Description: The Kinematic Sequence Drill helps make sure you are firing your body parts in the proper sequence in your golf swing to maximize power.  Summary: In slow motion, practice firing your body parts in the correct order. This means that you should go to the top of your swing and then start down with your hips first. As they start to slow or come to a stop, you should then feel your shoulders fire. As your shoulders then start to slow or come to a stop (this is...
The ability to rotate properly into the downswing is dependent on a few different things: - Flexibility - Swing Sequence - Swing Technique It goes without saying that if you aren't very flexible and don't create a nice tight coil on the backswing that it will be difficult for you to automatically unwind into the downswing.  Moving your body parts in the correct kinematic sequence is a necessity because it will be difficult to rotate your body properly for instance, if...
It sounds like you are slicing the ball (not pushing shots). The first thing and easiest thing to check is your grip as we want to make sure you aren't playing with a weak grip that could be keeping your clubface open. Check to make sure that the Vs that form between your forefinger and thumb of each hand are aligned parallel to each other and are both pointing somewhere between your right ear and your right shoulder. If your grip is solid and you are aligned square to...
