SHUT THE DOOR AT IMPACT
Catching a driver solid off a tee is one thing, but when the ball is on the turf, it’s a different story. You have to trust that hitting down is what creates those pure strikes.
Let’s back up a bit, and look at the setup. Your eyes can do incredible things to help you make solid contact. If you’re hitting it fat, focusing on the front of the ball can shift everything towards the target – including the low point of the swing. Likewise, looking at the back of the ball can keep you from sliding forward and hitting it thin.
When it comes to my irons, Butch and I have been drilling hard on getting my right knee, hip and shoulder in line with the ball at impact (right). If you have any hangback, you’ll struggle with contact. At impact, I feel like I’m shutting a door with my entire right side.
