The simple takeaway drill that will improve your strike
Fault: Weak iron shots caused by a poor attack angle Fix: Start with the club behind the ball to promote a downward strike
To strike your irons with power and authority, you need to make contact with the ball before the club reaches the bottom of its arc. This downward blow creates powerful pressure on the ball. Elite golfers find this strike by ensuring their rotating upper body leads the club into impact, but the average club golfer often needs a helping hand to create a similar effect. Here is a simple exercise that will help you promote the ideal, descending strike.
