Keeping head behind the ball

5 posts in this topic

Worked on this for the first time at a lesson this week.  I'm not a short hitter (9i is my 145-150 club), but I've still never understood how some of my buddies can get their 9i out there 160-170, 200 yard 6i's, etc. etc.  After being shown that I was making a lateral move forward, and subsequently started working on keeping my head behind the ball at impact, my shots are at new level.  I almost instantly gained a club length throughout the bag.  Not only that, irons launch WAY higher and thus land much softer with a lot more spin.  Driver is still a work in progress with this swing change, but when I catch it's almost 20 yards longer.

Point being, I think this is extremely important.  Definitely a game changer.

So simple key 1? Steady head has done wonders for me as well

Yep

Man, all the time I spend on here and I never actually understood the steady head.  I always thought it had to do with either dropping on the backswing or moving laterally BACK in the backswing, i.e., swaying off the ball instead of rotating.  Never got the importance of the head not going forward on the downswing.

One of the reasons I (and I suspect a whole lot of the peeps on here) love golf, is the moment you break through the latest plateau.  Watching my irons fly sky high now and travel 10-15 yards farther, along with the seemingly effortless power I'm putting into the ball is downright sexual.

Be careful, man. Conflating golf with sex will lead to trouble in the bedroom.  Not good.
