Often the difference between a strong, powerful swing and a misguided
hack is the tendency to hit, rather than stroke, the ball. The difference can
be seen when examining a short putt, when it is easy to stroke the ball.
Hitting is not an option for a short putt, which makes it the easiest shot in golf.
No desire to hit the ball allows a stroking, swinging motion. Perfect this
technique for short-distance shots and you will find increasing accuracy and
distance with your long shots as well.
