Video Golf Tip | Impact When Putting

Here is an extremely important tip and it is something I want all new golfers to know and understand. I usually introduce it when I bring somebody over to the putting green, I call it the two most important inches in golf. What I am talking about is an inch on either side of that golf ball. I consider that the most important area in golf. I do not care what club I have in my hand, whether it is a putter, an iron or a driver it is going to apply. What that means is I want everyone of those clubs when they come within an inch of either side of the golf ball, I want that club to be squared up. When I say squared up I want the face of the golf club facing in the direction that I want the ball to go. I do not want it open like a door. I do not want it closed like a door. It is very important that the club is traveling straight down the line and right where I want the ball to go. The other half of that is that club always has to be accelerating through that hitting area, never decelerating. With that said, if you look at any tour player, take a look at Jim Furyk, he has a swing that comes up and out and swings back down to the inside. You have a guy like Allan Doyle who has a hockey slap shot. He goes back about to shoulder level with his swing and comes through to a low finish. Lee Trevino comes way around his body and back low. They all have different golf swings and the point is you will have a different golf sing, but I guarantee you that at an inch on either side of that golf ball whatever club they have in their hand they have that clubface squared up and that club is accelerating. So when I get people over here on the green the first thing I am going to do is club down behind the ball, straight back and straight though, hit a solid golf shot. The most important two inches in golf, believe me.

Hitting Your Driver Tension is the cause for most driver and long iron problems, players tense their muscles in the set up and sap all their ability to create power during the swing
