Improve your golf game with some of this advice from a PGA Golfing pro!
Aim to have a nice wide stance at address with the ball towards the left heel. Tilting the right shoulder downwards will help to hit up on the ball and maximise the potential distance created.
A centred strike is key to a consistent iron player. When practising put an umbrella in the ground next to your right foot and try not to knock this down during the back swing. Any lateral movement knocking the umbrella over could create strike problems.
The weight should favour the left foot by 70% for a right handed golfer. Push the handle slightly ahead at address to create a triangle with the arms. The triangle should be kept throughout both parts of the swing.
If you have trouble holing out from that troubling 4-6ft range, place 4 balls on the practice green this distance away in the 4 compass points (N,E,S,W). How about aiming to complete two circuits of the compass without missing to ingrain good practice?
We all have different attributes in our physiology – getting custom fitted to your game may make all the difference. Tailoring clubs to your swing is one of the best moves any golfer can make, get custom fitted here at The Bunker.
Anyone partaking in a practice session should have a goal, target or aim in mind as they start their session. This could be to hit a certain number of shots in the air, work on something taught by their PGA Professional or use a drill specific for them. Following these tips will help keep you focused ,and monitor improvement.
