Travis Fulton: Stick your approach
Travis Fulton, Director of Instruction for TOUR Academy TPC Sawgrass, teaches an easy way to make better impact with your irons.Thank for joining me on Golf Channel Academy. I'm Travis Fulton, Director of Instruction for tour academy, TPC Sawgrass. And I wanna help you stick the golf ball closer to the flag stick with your iron game and in order to do that you need to be different. At impact, so let's talk about that. When you look at a good set up position, your shoulders are gonna be square and your hips are gonna be relatively square. When you look at a good impact position , it's very different, the lower body is gonna move left, and start to turn and open up. But yet my shoulders are gonna remain relatively square. That's a very difficult position to learn how to do. The most common error, when you look at an impact position , is your hips may open up, but yet your shoulders open up at the same rate, and that really sends the clubahead and wind up, and then just take it right through that impact position . I think if you do that, if you're different at impact where your hips are left and opening and your shoulders are
Night School: Make an impact
School of Golf host Martin Hall teaches how to use a 3-iron and piece of wood to improve your impact position. Watch School of Golf Wednesdays 7PM ET.Thanks for joining us on Golf Channel Academy. This is night school. I'm your teacher Martin Hall, here to get you playing your best golf this weekend. Well, maybe like me, maybe you've got a three iron lying somewhere around in the Garage or the basement, or the shed somewhere, gathering cobwebs, no reason to be using it to hit golf balls with. But actually, it's pretty good for training if you want. Should do something on a Friday night or a Saturday night. Before you go and play the next morning. I actually like to take my mint condition three i and that's probably about five years old. And I will put it against the end of a two by four. Now obviously there's loft on a there iron. But if I was to deloft it so there's absolutely no daylight between the, the club, the loft of the club and that 2x4, it puts me in a very good impact position . So if we can have a nice, full picture of me now. You'll see how when I take that daylight out, get rid of the daylight, it is a nighttime tip, isn't it? If I just pose that impact position , and I have no daylight between the loft of that club and that 2x4. I've got myself in a fantastic impact position . The hands are leading, the knuckles are down, the hips have turned, the right heel's off the ground. I've turned the hips

School of Golf's Martin Hall and Holly Sonders teach a great way to improve your impact position and make more consistent contact. Watch School of Golf Wednesdays 7PM ET.for sure. Amazingly, a homemade mallet and an orange stake from a hardware store is going to help me you down on the ball and you'll learn to trap it in a professional manner. I'm going to give you that club because you'll gonna need that in a minute but this is just an incredibly good way to learn the proper impact alignment. I'm going to take that peg Holly and I'm going to stick it in the ground at a bit of an angle and I'm gonna just tap it. This is sort of a piece of wood and I just drilled a hole in it and glued a shaft in so it's not a golf club . Obviously, there's no loft in it and I'm just gonna tap that mallet into the ground. Now, if you want to feel
