Draw: Forearm Rotation This drill will help you understand the rotation of the forearm through impact in order to draw the ball
Tension Causes Thin Shots Most thin or topped shots are not caused by picking your head up, as commonly believed, but rather because your muscles tense up and shorten the distance from your club to the ground
Chipping Impact Position Practice The angle your club approaches the ball on a chip is critical for your control so take a lesson from the pros and add a little wrist hinge to your backswing and keep your left wrist straight on the downswing
