More Distance, Same Effort (at home golf drill)

Click Here: to get my 3-part full-swing training series that will help you tap into a level of power and consistency you didn't know you had. And the best part? It's completely free!

Impact is a critical moment in the golf swing. At impact you want your shaft leaning forward with the hands in front of the ball.

This ensures your hit ball then turf, helps compress the golf ball, and effectively takes loft off of the club. Bottom line is more distance with the same amount of effort.

But impact is not a static position, and the way to get into a great impact position is to properly use the dynamic sequencing of your body.

In today's lesson we talk about how to improve your sequencing so that your impact position improves automatically. I'll show you a drill you can do at home, and some clips from the pros and my students.

  1. Another great tutorial. Flow and movement is something that has been missing from my game. I used to have it. But too many lessons from too many Pros concentrating on individual positions and swing part of components appealed too much to my analytical frontal lobe brain!! Ha! I am now trying to tap in to my remaining natural flow and movement. If you can Ski, dance and throw a pebble surely we can swing a club. Great video thanks for your help. Tom UK

  2. great video! Zach – a ballstriking blueprint question – I've been working hard on that move to shallow the club in transition. At times it feels as if I get off plane coming down and I wind up fighting the club a bit. Are there drills to feel the proper level of shallowing?

  3. Awesome analysis that ensures that arms stay connected to the torso and the speed of the swing is actually a result of the speed of the rotation and not the speed of the arms. This concept has completely changed the performance of my driving. Hit 12 of 14 during the past 2 rounds and added at least 25 yards by taking my hands / arms out of the downswing. Not quite there for my irons but this fast progress is very encouraging. Thanks Zach!

  5. Great video. I discovered that if I didn't take a practice swing before the shot, the results were pretty bad. Then I saw Speith taking multiple practice swings before his iron shots, so I tried that and got better. Finally I realized that I could be very athletic in my swing, and as a former baseball and tennis player, could still make great ball contact, even as my weight shifted from back foot to lead foot. Now I concentrate on making solid ball contact, and don't worry about moving my weight around or swing positions. Just like in baseball and tennis, the ball strike and face angle determine the ball flight. I bought your Ballstriking Blueprint series and have benefited from your instruction. Thank you.

  6. Great drill to make sure the body is working with arms. Another drill that I like to use is rehearse the address and impact position which also ensures the right swing movements….cheers

  7. This is an excellent video! Just one question…when you get into the preferred impact position, taking loft off the club, how do you keep the ball's trajectory from getting too low?
