Keep the club out in front of you
The world’s top hitters have one thing in common – they keep the clubhead in front of them during the swing. Sure, they turn their shoulders but they like to feel their hands stay in front of their chest throughout the swing. This gives them the best chance of getting their hands high at the top, which creates the most direct – and powerful – route back to the ball.
I have a tendency to drag the club a little inside going back, so I like to feel my wrists hinge early to get the club moving upwards in front of me.
