Hi Lee,

My golf game is up and down due to inconsistent ball striking. Any tips to help?

Hi Mitch,


You’re definitely not alone with this one. Here’s my favourite drill for solid consistent impact.

Grab a short iron, take your setup, then angle your back knee inward so your back foot is up on its toes. That will push the majority of your weight to your front side. From this setup, hit some half and three-quarter shots. You’ll make ball-first contact with your weight forward at impact and feel a nice push off your back foot as you go through. Mix in some regular swings from your normal setup, feeling your weight firmly on your front side during the forward swing and let me know how you get on. Keep an eye out on the On Course Facebook page for a video of the drill.


Game stuck in a bunker? Got a question for Lee? Send your golfing woes to cnettley@oncoursegolf.com.au and we’ll make sure he gets it.
