Box Drill

Hi all, I hope you all enjoyed my angle of attack article and seen some improvements, this week I will be helping you by giving you a drill to help you feel a positive or ascending angle of attack in a driver swing. You have probably heard by now it's to your advantage to hit up on the ball with a driver, but how to you achieve this without a Trackman or a FlightScope? Here is a drill to help you achieve this, when next at the driving range place an empty box of balls directly in front of the target a grip length in front of the teed up ball(refer to the picture above), the goal is to try not to hit the box when driving the ball, this will give you a visual and feedback on how to hit up on t

Angle Of Attack

Hi all, I hope you all enjoyed my swing match up article and seen some improvements, this week I will be helping those that hit their irons well but their driver not so well or vice versa, this is commonly due to angle of attack In driving the ball we tee the ball up off a tee, doing this we need to change the dynamics of the angle of attack of the clubhead leading into impact (because the ball is no longer of the ground). If we applied the same swing with a driver as an iron this would most likely result in too much backspin. A telltale sign of this problem is when you have scuff marks on the top of your driver. Hitting down with your irons to some degree is good (right side of photo below)
