AVOID HANGING BACK
A big tendency with club golfers is on the backswing to fall back onto the left heel (Pic 1)
When too much pressure and bodyweight is put onto the right heel it is extremely difficult to transfer the swing onto the left leg through impact. The consiquence being a classical "Hanging Back" position on the right leg in the hitting zone. (Pic 2) This normally leads to topping the ball or hitting it straight left.
HERE IS A PERFECT DRILL TO AVOID THIS PROBLEM
In the address position lift your right heel an inch or so from the ground. (Pic 3) Try to hold the heel of the ground in the same position through the backswing. (Pic 4)
You will fell an immediate difference with the pressure now being transfered to the inside edge of the right foot rather than back onto the heel. It is now infinitely easier to transfer the bodyweight throught onto the left leg on impact. (Pic 5)
This small difference of lifting the right heel at the address position and holding it through the backswing allows for a much more dynamic movement through the ball leading to less topping and much less pulled shots to the left. (Pic 6)
I firmly believe that this tip can be for every golfer a key to a more consistant performance.
