Hi, I have been struggling with contact and getting consistant with swing. Had a lesson and the last 10 min was spent having a full swing, except at impact the focus was to simply punch the ball, almost like a follow through on a short chip shot..Very small follow through.. WOW!! Immediate results, all of a sudden striking the ball crisp, whilst maintaining balance, spine angle.. It was surreal!!
It felt like I was using minimal power, to get maximum results, I was only using a 7 and 9 iron, but was getting with 7 iron 130m (145 ft approx) with ease..A real eye opener..
It made me wonder if I can get all my shots from off tee to fairway and approach shots consistant using this "punch" follow through, then over time this is a technique/drill that is only going to help my game. I was wondering whether I can stick with it for good. Still get a around 200m off tee with the punch, and feel really positive about my game..
Love to read others thoughts on this drill ?? it really works for me, and seems to be very easy on the body..another plus.
