Video Golf Tip | Ideal Impact Position
By Tim Cusick

The most important thing in the golf swing is making proper impact. You can have a swing that makes three loops at the top of the backswing but if you return back to the golf ball with a square clubface you can hit solid shots consistently. Proper impact consists of making sure that you make contact with the ball and the ground at the same time and your hands are just slightly forward at impact with an iron. What you want to make sure that you don't do is that you don't want to hit the ground before you hit the golf ball. That is hitting the big ball before you hit the little ball. If you make a mistake you would rather hit the ball first and then the ground. But for ideal contact get the ball and the ground at the same time, let your body turn through and you are going to hit some amazing iron shots.

Slice Cure: Forearms To promote clubface rotation make sure your left hand grip is turned back enough and then take half swing concentrating on the rotation of your forearms
Three-Foot Putting Drill Put a tee in the back of the cup and hit it squarely with every putt
Wrist Extensor Stretch Getting full mobility in your wrist extensor is important because it allows your wrists to move properly in the backswing so you do not have an open face at the top of your backswing
