Video Golf Tip | Crisp Iron Impacts

Hello, my name is Christopher Toulsen and I am the Director of Instruction for the Jim McLean Golf Schools. I am going to give you a swing tip here on hitting crisper iron shots. What we see from most of the players coming to our golf schools is that at the moment of contact, or what is commonly called impact, they have too much of their weight on their right leg. Whereas the top ballstrikers at impact, about 80 percent of their weight is on their left leg. And their right knee is not passive, but it is actually active and kicked up to where the golf ball is. The higher the handicap, the more we will see the right knee staying back. A good swing cue would be to make sure that on the downswing, your first move you initiate your downswing by having your right knee fire at the target. I will demonstrate here. So for crisper iron shots, on the downswing fire your right knee at the target. Thank you.
