If you want consistent ball-then-turf contact then you’ve come to the right place.
In our latest YouTube video, we explain how we got Christian going from horrible duffs to consistently straight iron shots using this very simple drill.
‘The One And Two’ drill
Christian’s issue with his ball striking laid in his transition. The weight transfer that we see in all great ball strikers was lacking, and so we showed him this drill and the effects on his ball striking were immediate.
The one and two drill works like this. Swing back to the top of your backswing, this is the motion that we call ‘one’. Then, shift your weight onto the lead leg, this is what we refer to as the ‘and’. Feel free to actually say this out-loud, and exaggerate the way you say it, like “aaaaaand”. Then, finish the downswing, and this is the part of the swing we can call ‘two’. See the images below for a visual demonstration.
This drill works because it moves the body closer to the impact line before you actually strike the golf ball. Therefore, moving the low-point of the swing forward, means that the club first makes contact with the ball and not the ground before it.
For the full explanation of the drill, be sure to check out the video below.
