Hitting good iron shots requires 2 elements – a good weight shift to provide power to the clubhead at impact, and secondly, you must strike the ball first to hit it solidly.  Thanks to David Nesbitt, PGA Professional, who gives you two tips to help with this.   I have a suggestion for his second drill with the lie board.  David mentions putting the lie board 8 inches behind the ball. My suggestion would be to slowly move the lie board forward, closing that distance until you have the lie board one inch behind and still not hit it.  Then you will have perfected this move!

If you’re frustrated with chunking or topping the golf ball, try these two simple tips and drills from David Nesbitt, PGA and start hitting your irons more consistently!

Looking to get extra distance from your swing? Who isn’t?

I would like to have a dollar for every time I am asked the question, “Mel, How do I get more Distance?”  Everyone wants to hit the ball further – even the long hitters!  It boils down to one simple answer – get more clubhead speed.  Practice swinging harder.  Golfers seem to think they will hit the ball offline if they swing harder.  No, poor technique hits the ball offline, not speed.  Teach your body good technique while swinging hard.  This is a learned skill, so go to the range and work on it.  It won’t just suddenly appear.  

There is definitely a correct sequence to get all the parts of the swing combined with increasing clubhead speed, so I have provided an easy drill (that you can do at home) to start you on the right path.  Get the sequence correct, and you can swing as hard as you like and still hit the ball straight!

In this Mel In Motion video golf tip, Mel Sole identifies five keys to help you tap into your power and provides a drill that focuses on the center of your power source: hip rotation.
