I am currently working to improve my chip shots, because it is where I lose most of my strokes. These steps have really helped me.

1. Always, keep your lower body still. With the chip shot, you don't need the distance, and you don't need the movement. The chip shot is all about being accurate and getting the ball close enough to the hole so that you can just tap it in with your putter, or better yet, even chip the ball in. Regardless of what type of chip it will be, your swing should not include a lot of lower body movement. Let your arms control the entire chip shot.
 2. Keep your front wrist still, but not clenched. While a relaxed grip is always recommended, the front wrist should not move much during the swing. Using a smooth stroke, keeping your front wrist still, and accelerating all the way through the ball, especially after you make contact with the ball, you will have less difficulty making an accurate shot.
3. Your hands should always pass your front knee first. Allowing the loft on the club to do the work, never try to lift the ball on your own or force the shot, this will result in a shot that is hit fat or thin  Begin with the ball placed farther back in your stance than normal, your hands slightly in front of the ball, andthen making sure your hands make it to your front knee first.
