Top tips for better ball striking
Take a look at the image below, it's this kind of backswing position that we see quite a lot of - and it's unlikely to lead to a clean strike. In fact, there are three common faults we see in this particular area.
Firstly, spine angle. The best ball strikers all set and maintain a good posture during the swing. During lessons we like to work on getting you to avoid lifting or dipping in the backswing or downswing. What you need to try and do is turn around a constant spine angle, which will deliver more consistent results.
Now, reference to this image, you'll notice how this golfer has swayed back. You do need to shift your weight during the swing, but this kind of movement will lead to fat and thin strikes. Keep your sternum over the ball at impact for better strikes.
Finally, one of the most common faults in the swing is when players come 'over the top'. With the club attacking the ball from outside the ball-to-target line you'll hit a slice or pull with your driver and strike it inconsistently with your irons.
