Consistently solid ball striking

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I think in my game I need to be more consistent. For example, I might hit a iron shot off target in the greenside bunkers, then the next hole stick a iron from 180 yards to 5 feet. Is there any drills to do to help make a more consistent solid contact with the ball?

Thanks.

I don't know of any drills, but a playing lesson with a pro might notice any tendencies you have that causes you're inconsistency. I know it helped me!

This is the Holy Grail of golf that you are searching for. Let us know if you find it. Most of the guys on the PGA Tour would like to know too.

"If only I could just hit every shot within 5 feet of my target... there must be a drill..." Haha

Eh, I would say most of them are pretty damn close. A couple of bad shots out of the 60-70 a round ain't bad.

He never said that, he was wondering if there are any drills that make it easier to hit the ball squarely. He never said every single time.

Well, OK, but he framed the question by saying that he occasionally hits his approach shots into green side bunkers, and he wants to stop that.

Even Tour pros hit the ball into green side bunkers on occasion, about twice per round. In fact, I've seen statistics that say the average approach shot to the green on Tour stops 25 feet from the pin.

Get really good in the greenside bunkers-lol. I know the Pros don't seem to have any problem with them.- Steve

You have to groove your individual swing. Try to make your swing as simple as possible in your mind. I focus on nothing but my weight shift and tempo. I let my body turn happen subconsciously as I move my weight back and let the hands drop naturally as I turn/move forward with me weight. Don't force your swing and trust it. This is the path to consistent contact daniel-son.
