What is hitting behind the golf ball with irons and why does it happen?
I can show you with the stick here is basically the back of the hit, the bottom of the arc that we talked about earlier, the low point being before, and it can happen over a, a variety of reasons, right?
Casting the club away, hanging back too much is a swing killer… you could do everything right but if you do the common golf swing fault with irons you will push the hands down and pretty much everything stalls.
When you do this… unless you rotate really hard through the ball, you are not going to strike your irons pure or correctly.
We want to avoid the casting.
Now, one of the ways we can do that is in the transition that we discussed, but also a couple of different sensations and feel that I want you to have.
#1 simple tip to hit consistent irons and stop hitting behind the ball.
It’s related to lag in a way.
So the thumbs here, what happens with the casting, the pressure is sort of applied that way. I’m pushing with the thumbs and that’s going to cast a club and expand that arc and dump it out that way. Right? What we want to feel is, is we want to feel that the weight of the club is actually applying pressure to the thumbs here. It’s applying pressure to the thumbs this way. And that just that alone can actually transform a lot of golfers because it’s a completely different sensation from pushing there to sort of allowing the club to the weight of the club, to sort of pull us back now, notice I’m not reducing, I’m not bending the arms in, I’m maintaining my supple structure, but I can feel the weight of the club apply pressure this way.
And what’s that going to do? That’s going to, as I make my way back down to the ball, it’s going to bring the low point further forward. Whereas if I was pushing that way, even if my body works the same, the club hits the bottom way before the ball. But with the same body motion I let outta the way to this club to push this way, see that it brings the club to where I need to be.
So to build on from that, I want you to picture a clock face. Okay. Now imagine that the, the clock face is sort of, I mean, whatever numbers you want to give it. Okay. Imagine there’s a clock face just to the side of me here. All right. So we’ve got 12 one and two at the top of the swing. We’re sort of about one, a lot of you as you kind of make your transition down, right? You will kind of end up pushing that way. So we’re going a little bit more towards sort of nine o’clock if you will, but I want you to start feeling that you’re getting to two o’clock. So we’ve got one to two and we’re bringing it to two, but I’m not doing it with the hands. I’m not doing it with just the club head. I’m doing it with my weight shift here.
So it’s there bringing it to two o’clock I’m not hugely narrowing, but I’m bringing the hands to there. Why is that important? Because this is my setup, right? This is my setup at the ball, our impact. We want to be a little bit more here, but look, if I was to just maintain all the way through the swing, okay. That’s where I would be. Botting out to nothing changes this unit. My hands actually do have to move this way. And when we’re up here moving this way to get it ahead of the ball is from one to two. So that feeling that can not only get us in the correct sort of angle of attack and position for impact, it can give you a nice sort of smooth slowing down feel, right? So it gives us something to think about there kind of an awareness of where do we want to be in that surfing in that transition.
All right. And by doing that, it’s gonna be very difficult to hit behind the ball and the drills here of getting the weight transfer, correct. And really putting a focus on ensuring that you are not looking at the ball. What do I mean by that?
What I mean by not looking at the ball is because if our focus is just here, what can happen is we end up hitting at there. We talked about going through and we want our release to go past and through the ball. So even hitting some shots with our focus about a club head, you know, two, three inches ahead of the ball will help our energy and momentum to get past. And to strike that. Now you can use a tea peg or something to, to signify this position. And we touched on that earlier and you can actually practice that drill, but the feeling of being through and extending the arms.
