A very common fault for golfers is the thin shot, often mentally a result of trying to lift the ball into the air. Physically, the golfer usually has too much weight back or on the trail side through impact. This causes the club to bottom out before impact and strike the ball on the upswing. Not good for your irons or approach shots!
The Flamingo can help! Stand on your lead leg. Place your trail toe on the ground even with your lead heel with a narrow stance. Knees should be side by side. Get into golf posture and hit half shots with 7 iron through pitching wedge. This drill presets the pressure into your lead side so you can get a true feel of proper impact. The club will bottom out where the pressure is, which should be after impact, towards the target.
