Help with weight transfer and shaft lean at impact.

3 posts in this topic

I've been struggling with my driver this year hitting it with a high fade. I was told to try preset some weight forward to make sure that there is weight on my front foot at impact. I messed around with that a little bit in my back yard last night and came to the conclusion that I haven't been transfering weight to my front foot. What it feels like to me is that I'm about 50/50 at impact instead of being 80/20 or 90/10. Does anyone know a drill or something I can do to fix this? I feel like this also is causing me to have almost no shaft lean at impact as well. Any help would be great thanks.

Try the "flying wedge" drill. The flying wedge if a golfing machine term used to describe the angle of the right wrist at impact. Basically it should be bent backwards which also keeps the left wrist flat. Flat left wrist + weight forward = good impact position.

Setup with your weight about 70% on front foot and do this drill:

You should check out some of the videos by GE on 5SK and weight forward: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7rdIi1b8OYuXbxE4Y4KJyw A lot of reading material on the driver here: http://thesandtrap.com/t/44307/hitting-up-or-down-with-the-driver-in-an-inline-pattern [quote name="1puttit" url="/t/69029/help-with-weight-transfer-and-shaft-lean-at-impact#post_881445"]Try the "flying wedge" drill.
