Force yourself to hit down on the ball

One of the best ways to eliminate a “lift” in your golf swing is to force yourself to hit down on the ball with the help of real time feedback! What we will use for real time feedback is a second golf ball, a sleeve of golf balls or an alignment stick and we will place one of those objects approximately 2 ft. behind the ball you intend to strike. The object here is to come over top of the secondary object, steepening your angle of attack, promoting a trapping swing rather than a sweeping one making sure we strike the golf ball before the turf. If done incorrectly you will see, feel and hear the secondary object move as you hit it before you hit the ball you were intending to strike. If done correctly, the secondary object will not move at all during your swing, and your strike will feel and sound more powerful.
