HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY IMPACT POSITION IN GOLF? 

Top 100 Teacher Peter Kostis shares a great lesson and two drills to help you make more solid iron shots. First is a lesson in proper impact position as illustrated beautifully with two alignment rods. Next is a drill to help you "feel" the correct position at impact. Peter shares that while your club shaft will start in a perpendicular position to the ground at address, at impact the shaft should be leaning toward the target at about 5 degrees. To learn how this position should feel, Peter uses a 2 X 4 piece of lumber, but any heavy object will do. Set the piece of wood so that the butt end is positioned where the golf ball would lie. Now by placing the club face flush to the wood you can try to slowly place pressure on the wood with the club shaft leaning forward as if you were going to sweep the floor and this will help you establish the pre-impact position. The second drill called trailing hand off at impact works wonders for helping to teach the proper shaft lean at impact, because as you reach the impact zone you will remove your trailing and from the club and this instantly accelerates the club forcing the lead wrist forward of the club head to maintain the swing path. Try it, you'll like it.
