Ball Position for Solid Irons

Everything you do before you hit the ball determines the outcome of the shot. If you are inconsistent with your ball position at address, you will be inconsistent with your shots.

BURN YOUR OBLIQUES TO FIRE UP YOUR SWING

In the golf swing, you need to be able to do a combination of side flexion (frontal plane movement or side to side motion) and rotation (transverse plane or rotational movement) in your core to wind up your torso to create power.

Practice Something About Your Game Everyday

KarenEnergize Your Game0 Comments

A note from Karen: In my opinion, daily practice is the key to success towards any goal.  Making 10 practice swings a day or stretching for five minutes everyday will get you playing better than doing a marathon practice session for two or three hours once a month.  First of all, it is always hard to find big chunks of … Read More
