Came across this on Youtube this evening and thought I would share.  I'd say he knows what he's talking about.     

Pretty much exactly how I teach chipping. Weight 20% more on left leg, sternum an inch or. two ahead of the ball, slight shaft lean, sternum stays stable, zero weight shift backwards.  You can even ch

Absolute gold. Switched to this method on my own a year or two ago and ... wow.

Pretty much exactly how I teach chipping. Weight 20% more on left leg, sternum an inch or. two ahead of the ball, slight shaft lean, sternum stays stable, zero weight shift backwards.  You can even chip with the right foot back away and on the toe like Paddy shows there, even one handed, and you will make solid ball first contact.

Thanks for posting, really like his tip of always landing it at the bottom of a slope, im sure i always try and carry it to the top on an uphill slope.

It's got to make you wonder if it makes so much sense for chipping in moving low point forward why doesn't the same set up not make sense for the full swing (S&T).

Wow! Padraig's backyard is nice.  And how Paddy loves to talk.  Some improvements in production would help, video and audio.  

Technique looks useful, i'll give it a try.

Of course, becoz Paddy, and all the other pros on utube, have been doing this 90% of their lives, it's so much easier for them: no real thinking of technique needed.  But hackers like me need to consider hands, sternum, head, ball, foot and now alignment rod between our feet.  Oops, don't forget the fear of a cr*p shot zooming off into the water on the opposite side of the green.

Good thing i luv to practice.

I suspect that in that setup the club is coming in on a much steeper plane. Also, I don't imagine enough speed can be developed without pressure moving to the trail foot in the backswing for a full swing to be effective.

I suspect most AM's need a steeper angle of attack when the ball is on the ground. I don't know about the speed issue. I know that when Mac was on the Tour he was in the top 10 in distance but I don't know if he was anchoring left back then.
