Excellent tip as it is my most common issue inconsistency on the downswing and achieving proper rhythm.

Please will you point me towards some tips that will help me stop hitting the ground before the ball which happens everywhere apart from the green! I've never taken a divot after the ball. This drives me mad!

Thanks

Great tip and very simple to follow. Now the trick is to make it part of my swing. Thank you.

Hey Joe, another good reason to "turn the club over" I did this to practise an iron shot on the course because I have a habit of "forcing" the downswing. This drill you mention gives the added audible of the swoosh after the ball. Nice one!

are your hands rolling over at the moment of ball impact?

It can be a difficult idea to try and roll your hands right at impact. You should arrive at impact with a flat left wrist and your hands will roll over just after. Start with small swings and experiment with trying to close the face to hit the ball left and delay the release to hit it right. Best of luck with your golf game and I hope this helps!

Don't throw the club at the ball. Use this drill to learn what it feels like to do it right. That was the point of it. It gives you some audio feedback you can make corrections with.

Hi Gerry,

Practice this drill for a while. You won't be casting if you get the swoosh of the club past the ball. Turn the club back over and picture the fastest part of your swing past the ball. Keep tension out of your hands and arms. I hope it helps!

Best Regards,

Joe

Thanks for the tip I tried it this morning did great a few strange looks but when the ball is still climbing over 250 people looked away, the swishing and superb technical tip helped stop a bad habit I've recently fallen into.

Merry Christmas all regards

Steve from N.J. - Thanks Joe. Anything that helps me in the tee box is good for my whole game. I knoe they say putt for doe, but if I'm driving the ball well, my whole game just falls into place.I guess it all comes down to confidence. Thanks again,
Steve S.

Interesting concept. I use the 'wrong end' idea to help maintain tempo, especially when I am tense or tired. It relly works.

What do you recommend for weight distribution? Even, or more to the right or left foot (for right hander)

Even is pretty good for most shots. Definitely not on your left foot when hitting the driver.

Nice tip. I'll try that tomorrow. One related question: when I try to control the lag (i.e., keeping the wrist cocked till the last minute) as you point out, I push the ball to the right. What am I doing wrong?

That's normal. Delaying the uncock of your wrists open the face slightly. To compensate for it, make sure you keep the back of your lead hand in line with the top of your forearm. Don't cup the back of your lead wrist at all.
If you are already keeping it straight or slightly bowed at impact and still pushing shots, then adjust your hand position to the right slightly on the grip to square up the face (assuming you are right handed).

Sometimes people cast the club because they have a weak grip which tends to open the club face in the backswing. If you're a right hander. Try getting your left hand more on top of the grip so when you look down at your grip you can see at least 2 knuckles.

I hope that helps. Start with small swings at first when working on this part of the swing.

Best,

Joe

Good advice. I noticed the right shoulder on the casting swing did not move forward very much whereas when you swung correctly it got over your front foot quickly. That's what I've been working on.

What is a technique to hold your lag then release the club?

Use your body to bring your arms and hands down to waist level before you use them. Transfer your weight toward the target by moving your knees and hips that direction. Keep your arms and hands in the same position in relation to your upper body until you get down near impact. To put it another way, drag your arms and hands down to waist level before using them.
Your body muscles are way stronger so you will probably hit the ball farther.

William,

Try this drill and then when hitting balls try to picture the fastest part of your swing being past the ball. Another thing would be to make sure is that you do not increase your grip pressure at the top of the swing. I hope this helps!

Best Regards,

Joe
