Christina Ricci’s Tip of the Week
Draw a Line
to groove fairway shots
Here’s a great drill I use to work on better impact. I like to work on my iron play in a fairway bunker. From the bunker, there is no room for error and I get instant feedback!
How to do it
Draw a line in the sand and place your ball, as shown. Then, grab an iron and make your swing. The objective of this game is to strike the ball, then sand. If successful, the divot in the sand will show after the line.
If your divot was in front of the line or too deep, no worries, clean the slate and try again. This is a great way to groove better impact.
So, let’s get to it!
