Video Golf Tip | Causes Of Toe Shots

For those of you who are trying to fix those shots that are hit off the toe of the club rather than in the sweet spot of the club, it is important for you to know what causes that. Imagine if you will a circle, and this circle is being described by the head of the club, it is the circle that the head of the club will travel on throughout your swing. Now at the center of that circle is your body and what you are trying to do is to understand that if the center does not move away from the ball then the head of the club will reach it as long as the arc is extended. So we are going to try to do two things, we’re going to try to find some exercises that are going to help you keep your center the same distance from the ball all the time, and then we are going to try to get your arc extended so that the sweet spot of the club runs into the ball rather than the toe of the club. We have several drills that will help you do exactly that.
