Clean up im­pact with a towel

ball-strik­ing

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Good ball-strik­ers get it done their own way, but one thing they all do is hit the ball be­fore they hit the ground. To get that clean, pure con­tact, give your­self a ref­er­ence point on the ground.

Set a small towel down and make some prac­tice swings with your 8-iron where you hit the turf in front of the towel. Once you do this three or four times, place a ball five cen­time­tres in front of the towel and hit a shot (above). If you try to lift the ball into the air, you’ll catch the towel be­fore you strike the ball, which means you need to make a more de­scend­ing strike.
