Video Golf Tip | Golf Swing Impact Drills
By Margaret Platt-Klaus

Hi, I’m Margaret Platt-Klaus and I work at the Jim McLean Golf School at the Doral Resort and Spa in sunny Miami, Florida. Today we are going to talk about impact and a couple of good drills you can do to achieve a good impact position. One would be to use an impact bag, or a canvas bag filled with old towels will also do. What you should do is set up the edge of the bag in the center of your stance and hit it slowly on your downswing with about 30 percent of your power. What you want to do is try to achieve a good impact position. Right heel off of the ground, right knee kicking in and hands in front of the ball. Another drill that you can do at home is to use a door frame or door jam in your house. Put the clubhead against the door frame and slightly push and exert pressure against the door frame, feeling the shaft bending forward with a little bit of tension. The hands should be ahead of the door frame, right knee kicking in and right heel off of the ground. These are two simple drills that you can do at home to help you achieve the different feel between impact and setup.

Bunker Set Up When playing a bunker shot play the ball off your front heel and make sure that you hit only several inches behind the ball so that the bottom of your swing arc is directly under the ball
Downswing Practice With a traffic cone behind you practice your downswing trying to keep the club inside the cone to simulate the correct approach at impact, this will help eliminate casting, over the top and other downswing faults that create curved shots and an improper impact position
