Many amateur golfers struggle when they get to impact because they have a scooping action in their swing that leads to the clubhead getting to the ball before the hands.
In reality, what you’re looking for is the exact opposite, as solid, powerful ball-striking comes from the hands leading the way at impact.
In this video, SwingFix instructor Jim Williams has a great avoidance drill to help you eliminate a scoop, and all you’ll need is your golf towel.
Try this drill when hitting irons on the range, as well as when you’re chipping around the practice green, and you’ll quickly start to make better contact.
