When you are playing a wonderful round of golf do you ever wonder when the wheels will fall off? And then it happens! Or have you ever played a great first nine holes and someone points out that you are playing over your head and it does go right to your head. You just can’t get back on track.
Here are some great ideas to get back on track DURING YOUR ROUND OF GOLF. Try these ideas before you step up to the next tee.
1/ Flip your club and swing with your grip at the end to feel the club release and hear the whooshing sound at the point of impacts. Then flip your club and do the same with your normal swing.
2/ Choke down on your grip by 2 inches. You may hit a shorter distance but controlling your swing will make it easier to impact your ball on the center of your club face. Take some practice swings to adjust.
3/ Make sure that you are controlling for your natural fad or draw. For a Fade: Setup with a slightly open face and a lower tee height. For a Draw: Setup with a slightly closed face and a higher tee.
4/ If you are falling backwards at the end of your swing, you are not shifting your weight properly. You are swinging too fast with your arms before your weight can shift to your leading foot. Try the Step Drill. Put your feet together and start to step forward (like a baseball player), as you reach the top during your swing. Do this just to get the feeling for your weight shift.
Another solution is to setup with a little more weight on your leading foot. Avoid swaying back during your backswing, just rotate your shoulders and finish your swing on you leading foot.
5/ When you are tense, a tighter grip will close the face of your club and generate more draw or even a duck hook. Loosen up! Keep your grip at a nice light 4 out of 10.
