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.

Definition of the Hook Hooks are caused by the disconnection of the left or right elbow to the body, which forces you to flip your hands over before impact during the downswing
Start the Forward-Swing Many golfers start the forward swing with a violent motion rather than a gradual acceleration of the clubhead through to impact
