Jason Palmer knows his methods are, um, unorthodox. In 2010, Palmer started chipping from 50 yards and in with just one hand.

"I was battling with my short play into the greens with two hands, I just couldn’t get the feel right," said Palmer in the New York Times. "I dreaded missing the greens and it was affecting me badly."

Here's a look at his work:

Palmer qualified for the European Tour by finishing in the top 15 on the Challenge Tour. He said his switch to one-handed chipping is the only reason he's made it this far.

"Fellow pros know how the yips can have a devastating effect on your game and I know I wouldn’t be on the European Tour if it wasn’t for the change that I made," he said.

"I do get some strange looks at pro-ams where some amateurs don’t think you are taking things seriously, but I have taken to warning them now before I play a shot."

Palmer is making his European Tour debut this week at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.
