Correct knee action in the golf swing can make all the difference in your game.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf explain how the real key is the left knee movement on both the backswing and the downswing.  Learn to stabilize the right shin on the backswing and then drive the left knee towards the target on the downswing to get you that extra power you have been looking for.  I was taught to imagine standing inside a barrel.  Keeps the hips inside the barrel on the backswing and burst through the barrel on the downswing!

In today’s Impact Show, we discuss the lower body in the golf swing and show you how three great ball strikers (Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus and Bubba Watson) use their lead leg throughout the swing. We look at some of the key ingredients to an effective leg work in the swing as we answer one of our follower’s questions. 

And WRXers, don’t forget to get post your questions on what you would like to see us cover in our next Impact Show.

To take your game up a notch, you need to know how to draw and fade the ball at will. These two invaluable shots can help you A) Get out of trouble when you need to curve the ball around an obstacle like a tree, and B) Hit the ball away from trouble off the tee. For example, if there is an out of bounds on the right-hand side, and you have the ability to hit a draw (right-handed golfers) to move the ball away from getting a potential penalty, you have just taken your game to the next level!  In conjunction with Callaway Golf, David Leadbetter shows you exactly how to learn to draw the ball at will. So, head to the range and try this out!

Alignment is the key: aim your body a little to the right, your club face (a little less) to the right, and “think draw” with your swing.

Getting your weight shifted from your back foot to your front as quickly as possible is one of the most important moves in the golf swing.  

Doing it correctly is critical and is where most amateurs go wrong.  Moving the hips forward in a lateral motion can be achieved using an alignment stick placed upright in the ground an inch or so ahead of the lead foot.  Trying to get the hip to move into the stick gives the golfer the correct feel of this motion.  Thanks to Golf Step by StepJean Chua, LPGA player on the Symetra Tour, who gives you her take on this drill and how it has helped her game!

Many golfers try too hard to get the ball in the air. The most common way of going about this is by leaning back at impact as if to impart more loft on your clubs. Symetra Tour pro Jean Chua gives you a good drill to help you feel like you’re getting your weight to your lead side, which will help you compress the ball more, launching it higher by striking it more flush.

Hitting out of the thick rough is no fun, but if you know a couple of tricks like keeping the clubface open at address and taking a club with plenty of loft, you can at least be playing your next shot from the fairway.  The worst thing possible in golf is to follow a bad shot with another bad shot.  Sean Casey of Sean Casey Golf shows you exactly how to extricate yourself from this daunting shot! 

Just like hitting from greenside bunkers and from behind trees, playing from the fescue is not an ideal situation, but one that you need to be prepared to play. Sean Casey gives you some tips to extricate yourself from that thick situation.

I have never liked Jordan Spieth’s golf swing.  His “chicken wing” movement through the ball to me is still why he left the clubface open and the ball out to the right on the 12th hole at Augusta that finally cost him the tournament.  I’m interested in what Hank Haney has to say!

A few unconventional parts to Jordan Spieth’s swing, and Hank Haney analyses that swing here.  Haney also points out some tips to make you a better player.  Eliminating one side of the golf course from his game is one reason Jordan has reached the #1 player in the world!

We have all played a bunker shot and left it in the sand because we did not consider that the sand was either wet or compact.  

The first thing you definitely want to do before you play any bunker shot is digging your feet in.  This is not to give you a better footing or lower your body, as most people think, but to feel the sand’s texture!  This will help you determine what club you should be using and how you will play this shot before you just mindlessly step up and hit! Playing out of wet or compact bunkers takes a special technique, so here a pro from free-online-golf-tips.com explains the finer points!
