Ball Striking Improvement Series - Tip 1: Impact

By: Emga (East Midlands Golf Academy) | Wed 23 Aug 2017 | Comments ()

Ball striking is a vital part of the golf swing and typically the better ball strikers on tour are the most successful. However, a lot of amateur golfers slip up in this area and are prone to very poor or inconsistent strike causing multiple bad shots.

Steve looks at this from the aspect of the intial set up and impact position. By understanding the relationship the clubhead has with the strike on the golf club you will start to appreciate the area on the club you are making contact with and begin to understand what might need to be changed. 

Steve also gives you a drill to help you start to see instant results from your ball striking. By placing a cane in the middle of your stance right next to the golf ball, you are able to immediately see where your tendency to strike the ball comes from. The ideal spot for your strike is obviously infront of the cane, in a reasonably square shape to your target.

With the help of this drill you recieve instant feedback on when your club is at address and what changes need to be made to perfect your strike.
