There are three crucial things that you have to do if you want to be a great ball striker. If you get these pieces down. I'm telling you, you can give Collin Morikawa run for his money. So let's work backwards with number one, number one is we need to get the butt end of the club to the ball before the club reach reaches parallel to the ground when we look at the best ball strikers.
This is the kind of position that they're in. So if I fast forward this to impact, you can see how I'm getting my hands ahead of the golf ball and I'm de lofting the club and I'm going to compress the heck out of the ball if I'm able to do that. When I look at golfers that really struggle, what they're doing is by the time this butt into the club gets to the ball.
The club's already down here, or sometimes it's even at the golf ball and you're going to end up hitting thin shots, chunks, you know, losing a lot of compression because you're going to be adding a lot of loft at impact, basically turning your five iron into a nine iron. And that's not what we want to do. So we want to get those hands in front.
And the only way we can do that is by getting the butt to the ball before the club gets parallel to the ground. Now, I see a lot of golfers try to do this but what they end up doing is they try to go from point A to point B from the top of the swing. They try to get this button to the club straight down to a golf ball from point A to point B.
And the problem with that is when I do that, look what happens to the club. That club I'm going to pull my hands in and that club is going to want to cast. And if that club casts, there's just no way I'm going to get that back to the ball before that club is parallel to the ground. So what we need to do is number two, which is create width.
We need to push that. But away from you so but away from you and the start of the downswing. And then but to the ball, I want this but into the club to take a scenic route. I want it to take the longest route possible to get to the golf ball. You've heard of instructors saying width, that's what we want.
We want to get that club going out away from the body Now, a big mistake that I see with that is I see golfers try to push the ball into the club out this way. I want you to push the button of the club away from your body with your arm. So really push it away from you. So watch.
If I do that, look what happens to the club. That club head wants to fall back behind my hands. If I put my hands in the club that wants to go that way, if I push my hands out, they want to go that way. So if I put those two pieces together where I'm pushing my hands out, the club head falls behind and I get the button to the club, to the ball.
Now I'm in that great position and I can get lots of shuffling as I'm coming into impact. So here's what I want you to do. First, I want you to go to the top of the swing, and I want you to pause. And at the top of the swing, I want you to feel this, but go away from you so butt goes out, away from you.
You're pushing it out, away from you with your hands. And I want you to pause about halfway down. So go up the top. Pause about halfway down from there. I want you to get the butt to the ball club is parallel to the ground, but to the ball. Do a little pump and swing through into the full finish.
I want you to do that for about five, 10 minutes. Get in plenty of reps doing that, getting comfortable with the motion, getting comfortable with that club being behind your hands throughout the swing. Right. So once we've done that, now we want to work toward doing more fluid swings. All right, so I want you to go up to the top pause and I want you to, in a fluid motion, go really slow, get that into the club, going out away from you to the and then to the ball.
Right. So nice, fluid and slow. And again, five, 10 minutes doing lots of reps, getting that slow fluid swing. Once we've done that, let's go to the next progression and now let's do it in a complete fluid swing. So we went pausing reps and then we went one pause at the top fluid through the downswing. And now what I want you to do is I want you to do an entire fluid swing but go nice and slow with it.
Anything that we learn to do fast, we have to learn to do slow first, right? So it's not likely that you're going to be able to just do this at full speed right away with the golf ball. So that's why we have to incorporate practice swings to get the feel for this at first. So I want you to go nice and slow and fluid here.
And when you go slow, the reason why that's also important is because it gives you a chance to organize your thoughts, right? You can organize your movements a lot better if you go fast. Things are happening too fast. You can't really think about what you're doing, but if you get enough reps in with it, you're going to get more comfortable with it and it's going to become more automatic.
So nice fluid swing, really feeling up into the club, working out away from me feeling that into the club, getting to the ball before the club gets parallel to the ground, coming around into a full finish again. 5, 10 minutes of doing that now once you've done that and you've worked your way up to faster and faster swings, now we're ready to add the golf ball and try to do it with the golf ball.
Now, as I mentioned, there are three crucial pieces to being a great ball striker. We went over the first two. The last one is really the most crucial one, and that is getting this club shallow out and getting that face square earlier in the start of the downswing. And this is what we refer to as the move at task we go.
So if I'm coming down steep right now, I have this face very open when I'm coming down. Sure. I might be able to get the end of the club to the ball. Right? I might be able to get that button into the club to the ball, but my club is going to be very over the top and that base is going to be very open.
I may be able to get a lot shuffling, but I'm not going to able to put any use to it because I'm going to be cutting across the ball so badly, I'll be hitting poles and slices. It's just not going to allow me to be really good at what I'm doing. So what I need to do is I need to get this club shallowing out, and I need to get this this face squaring up.
Because if I don't, my only alternative to hitting a functional shot is to stand up and look. If I stand up, look what happens to the club. That Club Shallows out and now I can throw my arms at it. And that feels really powerful. But that's not going to allow you to be a great ball striker, because when I stand up, I have to really release the club.
I lose, I add a lot loft, right, and I lose all my compression. So if I want to stay in my posture, I want to get this club shallowing out. So that way I don't have to make that compensation. That way I can make good use of the first two things that you did here. So go to the move course work through that drill, pair it with what we did today.
I'm telling you, you're going to be a great ball striker. As I mentioned, you will be giving Collin Morikawa the best ball striker on the PGA Tour, run for his money. So check that out. Play well, and I'll talk to you soon.
