PUT THE CLUB ON THE BACK OF THE BALL

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

When there’s no cush­ion of grass un­der the ball, I’ve seen a lot of am­a­teurs freak out. Don’t. This shot is not that de­mand­ing if you re­mem­ber one thing: Give the back of the ball a smack with the club­head. That means your club should ride along the ground a lit­tle longer through the im­pact zone, tak­ing a thin divot af­ter the hit. A great drill Randy uses to teach this swing is to tee a ball

1/16th of an inch off the turf and have stu­dents try to shear the head off the tee with a 7-iron. If they do it, the ball takes off like a rocket. De­cap­i­tat­ing an imag­i­nary tee un­der the ball also is a great im­age to use on the course.
