Video Golf Tip | Weak Short Shots

Here is a tip for those people hitting weak or not solid golf shots. Usually when they first come to me when that is happening to them the first thing I do is look at them face on, just like the camera is on me. invariably what I see is that the hands are in the wrong position, they are usually back a little bit, and a dead giveaway is that the shaft of that golf club is straight up and down. If the golf club is straight up and down I am going to expect to see a lot of weak shots going high either to the right if you are right handed or to the left if you are left handed. All I am going to do is get them set up correctly with the club. The club is built with an angle so that the shaft and grip go forward. If I just set up on that shaft correctly and keep my hands in the proper position, which is always right here and here, now you can see I am sitting in better position to that club. That is going to allow me to hit down and through the shot instead of hitting the club in a very weak position. So if you are having trouble hitting weak shots or not having good contact with the club check your set up with the club, check your hands and I think you will see an improvement immediately.

Takeaway Practice The takeaway is probably the most important part of the swing so use this drill to make sure you have this first move of the swing down right
One-Plane Impact Position The one plane swing is the way to go for consistent impacts because the clubface naturally closes on the downswing and does not require hand manipulation to square the face.
Circular One-Plane Finish Since we are swinging around the body in the one plane swing the club should travel on an arc and not down the target line, thus the right arm gets extended and the left arm bends on the follow through.
