You have to make sure you turn your shoulders and hips correctly. This is called “coiling.” If you do not turn properly then you are not going to hit full power. In order to maximize your drive potential, you must learn to “coil” properly. Practice with an instructor or tape yourself swinging and practice doing this without hitting the ball.
If you have are close to the green with only close cut grass between you in the green, consider using a 3 wood or hybrid club to putt the ball toward the green. By avoiding a pitch that could lead to large bounces, hitting it fat, or any other number of potential problems, a put with a 3 wood or hybrid can give you the push to get through the grass and onto the green with more consistency.
To help you chip the ball better and more consistent you should swing with your body and not your hands. When chipping you need to make more of a body rotation with your bigger muscles. Using your hands can lead to all sorts of inconsistencies such as thin, fat or even shanked shots.
To correct topping off of the ball, keep your eyes down until impact. The primary cause of topping the ball (grazing the top of the ball or hitting it too high) is looking up too soon. Once you set up your shot and take aim, keep your head down until after you hit the ball. Your head should not rise until you are into your follow-through.
