Advanced Golf Lesson - Professional Impact
An important discussion on the impact conditions that truly dictate
how well you can play the game. By John Dunigan PGA Master Professional.
The Professional Impact Move
As the ball is leaving the impact:
- The clubshaft is leaning forward
- The hands are in front of the clubhead and left leg
- Left arm straight - the right just about straight
Move designed to create backswing and compression. This is the
only way the club can still be moving downwards at impact.
How to get the hands in front
Get the visualization first
Tell yourself: I am going to hit down on the ball to keep the club
on the ball as long as possible.
Right hand is pushing the club down, not forward. This avoids the
left wrist from breaking and resulting in a top shot or fat shot.
The way John teaches this lesson supports our approach on Golf
Watch this video over and over until you have a clear image in
your mind, practice the drills at home and on the driving range,
then, and only then take your new skill to the course.
