Here is another great drill to help any golfer gain a better perspective of what impact should feel like.
- Drape a towel (large or small) around the hosel of any iron.
- With the clubhead resting on the ground as pictured above drag the towel along the ground toward the target.
This drill can be done with or without a towel (pictured below) and will give you the sense of leading with the handle into the impact zone.
Notice the flex and pressure in the shaft as I am pressing down while dragging the handle into the hit. Give it a try - I did, and I think it can help you too.
Thanks to my fellow instructor Mark Costaregni at Atlantic Golf Club for turning me onto this drill and Joe Connery for his camera expertise.
