Proper ball contact

PROBLEM: Hitting behind the ball or too high on the  ball.

This is often caused by swaying during the swing.  Any side-
to-side or up and down head movement should be avoided.

To get the right feel, hit some practice shots with feet together.

During your weight shift, concentrate on keeping the weight 
on your right foot on the inside of your foot.

Check your progress by taking practice swings with sun 
behind you and watching your shadow.

Don’t let the clubface get ahead of your hands at impact.

To avoid hitting chips and pitches fat:

Don’t sole the club at address.

Use an open, narrow stance.

Keep arms connected to chest and rotate   body rather than 
sliding hips laterally and jabbing at the ball with your hands.

Focus eyes on front of ball, with weight on front foot and wrists 
ahead of ball at address and through impact.

Be sure to make a complete follow-through.
