Video Golf Tip | Cure For Fat Shots: Address

For those of you who have problems hitting the ball with the top of the club, rather than in the center of the club, it is very important for you to know that one of the things that causes that is the fact that when you are making your swing you might be starting from to slack a position. In other words, your arms are too soft, your body is too hunched over, so that as you swing your arms will extend, putting the club underneath the ball, making you hit the ball on the top of the club or to hit it fat. What you would like to do is you would like to be measured at address in a position that will allow you to be extended at impact and create solid contact. A good drill to help you get the feel for the correct set up is the pre-impact drill. To do this, take your normal set up and then put yourself in your impact position. What you are looking for at impact is the left arm extended, your left wrist flat and your right wrist bent and you are looking to have your body rotated. What you want to do is to get into that position, determine how far away you need to be, how tall you need to be, and then come back to address and you will have the correct position at address. So once again, pre-impact then come back, now that is the correct address position for you to be properly measured for solid contact.
