All right guys, I’ve got a really good video for you all on how to be consistent as we’re coming through contact, and a fantastic drill on this.
Not a very long video, I’m not going to get into the details of the flat spot. If you haven’t seen my “How to be Consistent in your Golf Swing,” talking about how to get the flat spot, go ahead and watch that now.
I’ll put a link up on the screen and down below in the description for that, but in this, we’re going to build on that, and we’re going to give you a great little drill to feel that flat spot, and feel that consistent strike.
One of the most important things, or one of the most common things that I see that people really struggle with, is they get tired of chunking the ball, and then topping the ball, and being so inconsistent with their golf swing.
What’s happening when you’re doing that, is two of the major things that I see are number one, we’re coming over the top, our shoulders ae spinning open, and were swinging right to left and really coming into this ball steep.
That’s an over the top swing, usually you’ll see a big slice when you’re doing that. We’re going to address that.
Number two, is we’re casting. We have an early cast as we’re coming down, and then as we get down to the ball, our club is working into the ground and then back up. Our left wrist breaks down, a lot of times we’ll see the chicken wing as we’re doing this.
But our club is coming down and swooping right back up without coming down into the golf ball. That’s very common also. If your left wrist is breaking down, this is probably exactly what you’re doing. We’re going to address that in this drill too.
What I want you to do, is to go ahead and get into the proper impact position. We’re going to feel that low, flat spot, and that club releasing down and through the ball.
If I get my address position here, I’m going to come down to impact which would be weight into my left ankle, a little bit of weight on the inside of my right toe, so right here. But I’m really going to feel the weight in my left ankle.
I’m going to have my hips about 45° open, and then from there, I’m going to go ahead and let my club touch the ground about two to three inches behind the golf ball.
I know this sounds crazy, but if you’re working through contact correctly, your club is barely going to start to graze the top of the grass about two inches or an inch or so behind the golf ball. We’re going to get there.
I’m going to go ahead and move this golf ball out of the way. From here, what I want you to do is I want you to make sure that face is dead square, and I want you to have the face release through contact dragging on the ground.
I’m going level with the ground for a good six to eight inches here, and I’m having that club travel square through contact. Then I’m going to come on through to a good, full finish.
Again, little bit of a backswing, come down to contact, hips open, weight in the left side, face dead square, look at the foreword shaft lean have here.
I’m going to let that club, I’m going to feel that club moving through contact a good four or five times, and then I’m going to swing o through to a good, full finish.
If I’m watching it this way, one thing that I want you to make sure, is that when you’re letting the face drag, or kind of slide along contact, I don’t want that face coming across the ball. I don’t want to do this, where I’m swinging across the ball.
I want that face releasing through the golf ball straight. For those of you that struggle with the slice, even a little bit out to the right is fine for most people that are struggling getting a bit of a slice.
That’s going to get me coming down through contact in that nice, shallow angle of attack. Do about 100 repetitions of that, feeling the contact, feeling the shaft lean, and then coming on through to the finish.
Then we’re going to make a nice, easy swing, about 50 percent, and we’re going to hit that shot recreating that exact same feeling.
There we go. Nice and clean, and a very shallow divot. When I’m making a half-swing like that, you won’t see a big divot with a lot of dirt flying up, but you will see me brushing the grass.
Work on that drill, build it up from 60, 70, 80 percent, all the way up to full speed. Recreate that good contact, you guys are going to be hitting it solid.
