Video Golf Tip | Re-Establishing Contact

Here is a tip for a lot of you who are working on the range, or if I am working with a student on the range, and all of a sudden after hitting a lot of great shots he starts to hit a bunch of bad shots. The first thing I am going to do is back him off and ask them what they think they should do. If they are student of mine they are going to know what to do. That is I want them to re-establish contact. They need to feel that ball off the clubface. So even if I have to take them and put a ball on a tee, set the club up behind the ball, feet together, spread the feet out and just kind of bump that ball and have them bump a half dozen balls progressively going back with their golf club. What it does is it re-establishes contact. They get the feel of the solid contact of that ball against the clubface, which is really important. I always say to people that if you are not having solid contact you have to go work on establishing that contact. Once you have established contact you can do whatever you want to do. So in this case here, if I have someone who is on the range who after hitting some pretty good shots starts to lose it, I am going to back them off and I am going to re-establish contact. It works for them, it will work for you.
