If you are struggling with consistency and/or club-face control, then “L Swings” are just what you need. “L Swings” are a great way to learn about club-face awareness and centeredness of contact. They will simplify the swing process and provide you with the framework to build a proper and repeatable golf swing.

For extra feedback, I recommend utilizing a powdered spray on the club-face (see below) while performing the “L Swings.” This will allow you to see exactly where you are contacting the ball on the club-face.

    Yes… “focus on the form” so that the form will be engrammed into your brain when swinging automatically. I figure you would have to repeat this exercise drill at least 1000 times (50 times daily for 20 days), before it enters the non-conscious automatic play level. Start today….

      Please clarify the 20 days of straight practice. I believe best results are achieved if you have ‘rest’ days to let the practice soak in. How about 20 practice days over 30 days?

Brooks Koepka’s grip secret

Here is a great video on understanding what allows a great player to get through the ball and deliver hardcore to his targets. Without this part of his grip, he would be hard-pressed to deliver anything with any kind of smash factor and compression. See what you can learn from his grip.

Swing speed vs. quality impact

Published

on

In today’s age of hitting the ball as hard and as far as you can on tour, I am amazed at the number of amateur golfers who totally disregard the idea of quality impact. In fact, you can hit the ball further with better impact than you can with poor impact and more speed (to a point.) Sure, if you can kick the clubhead speed up 10 MPH-plus versus your normal speed, then this is not a requirement, but in reality most players only swing a few MPH faster when they actually try. Yes, this is true, I see it day after day. You might think you can swing 10 MPH faster but rarely do I see more than 2-3 MPH tops.

I had a student that came in the other day and was obsessed with swinging harder but when he did his impacts were terrible! When I put him on Trackman and showed him the data he was astounded that he could swing slower yet produce more distance.

Here was a typical swing he made when swinging faster 105.8 mph where the impact was low on the face and the ball carried 222.3 yards.


Here was a typical swing he made when swinging slower 102.9 mph where the impact was much better on the face and the ball carried 242.7 yards.

Now, obviously we know that this works to a certain degree of swing speed but it does show you that focusing on quality impact is a key as well. I’m always telling my players that I want them to swing as hard and as fast as they can AND maintain quality impact location — if you can do both then you can have it all!

The best way to understand impact quality without dismantling your swing is to use foot spray to coat the face of the club then hit a few balls to see where impact normally occurs and see if you can adjust.


If you can, great, if not, then go see your teaching professional and figure out why so you can find quality impact once and for all!
