Culprit No.1 Head Gets Ahead
Culprit No.2 Poor Impact
Culprit No.3 Improper Sequence
Let’s examine Culprit No. 3 » Improper Sequence
Don’t get too fast with your hips on the downswing. This is still my nemesis. However, I am much better than my early days. I spend lots of time working on this with my golf professional.
Hands should be in front of my hips, not trailing behind! Unless I do some fancy maneuvers, this ball is going to be thin and right!
SOLUTION: GET IN SEQUENCE with the L-to-L Drill to groove a better sequence.
Focus on creating an L on your backswing and on your through-swing. Creating an L-to-L swing allows for the swing’s natural sequence, producing solid shots! And as a bonus, you’ll generate tremendous clubhead speed for lots more distance!
