    Any drills to fix the flaw of hitting behind the ball? I do that more than anything.

    Once you “have the principle” of looking at spot behind the ball…does the hit become ball-turf again….looks like your last hit in the tip is ball turf

      Yes, you are doing a normal swing. You are not physically trying to hit the ground. If you did you would hit every shot fat. Get the feeling in practice swings the apply it to a real golf shot and see what happens.

    Paul, thank you for this drill. I was told that to achieve the same thing I should try to hit the ball somewhere between 7-8 O’clock. It has been a good thing, especially when driving. Is this drill aimed to achieve the same thing?

      Basically the same thing. Just feel like the ball is behind the ball you are trying to hit.

    Hi Paul,
    I tee up the ball the way you recommend for a driver but I still touch the ground during impact. Is this normal?

    Paul Does this drill encourage you to start with lower body or do we still have to concentrate on starting dowswing with lower body. Been doing alot of your starting downswing with lower body drills,which one of these is the most effective.

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
