What is the most important aspect of striking the ball straight and with power?





This is the point in the swing where the ball is struck.

Where the clubface is pointing - combined with the path of the clubhead and the angle of descent of the clubhead and the speed of the clubhead at the moment will very much determine the outcome of the shot being played.

There are many differing thoughts about impact and especially how to achieve it. Let me show you what I know and how I believe through my own experiences it releates to 100% of the best players who ever played the game.

The golf ball can ONLY do what it is told to do - so the better we get to impact the greater the chance of a successful result.

Quality of strike is the number one goal initially for a golfer. IF we can strike the ball solidly time and time again then we open up a full playing field of improvements that will eventually work into our game- being but not limited to direction of the shot and distance of the shot and importantly hitting each club the same distance each time we swing it.

The golf ball doesn't care who is hitting it- all it does is react to dynamics of being hit The better the sequence of the motion- therefore the dynamics- the truer, the farther, the more control your golf ball will display. It is what separates the poor player from the good player.

In the following videos I explain the Dynamics Of The Golf Swing in much more depth than you have probably witnessed before. It may be different than what you believe or have heard however what I discuss is the lifeblood of the great consistent striker.

For those that don't know the way I go about teaching it will open your thoughts to a different hemisphere of how the hit of the golf ball unfolds. For those who who have done my drill series or have seen me in person for lessons the videos will add more re-inforcement to your understanding of why and how the way I teach helps propel the student to a better level of striking that will only continue to improve as the work is done and ingrained to greater levels.

This is one of my favourite photographs of the impact position. Greg Norman is often regarded as the finest driver of the golf ball in history. 




Growing up in Australia is was perfectly logical to idolize The Great White Shark and as every kid does- try to imitate what their idols do. 

I first saw Norman hit a golf ball in real time at the 1979 Victorian Open when i was 12 years old.
