Golf Tips - Improve your Airtime by Improving Your Brush

By Larry O. Krupp

We refer to the club head-ground contact as the brush. The brush has 2 elements: correct depth, high to low, and correct spot, front to back. A specific starting position, or posture, can greatly affect the brush. The correct combination of body bend points, weight distribution in feet (heel to toe), and distance of hands from the body, will help produce a consistent depth of brush. For example, if your brush is usually high (topping and low trajectory shots), try standing with more weight in the balls of your feet, and move your hands closer to your body at address. Then all you have to do is stay level during the swing, which is best felt through slow motion at first, then bringing it up to speed. Now, the right spot is just in front of the ball. The main influence on spot is weight distribution in feet, front to back, at impact. The more weight in the front (target side) foot, the more forward the brush. *
