Every golfer knows that feeling when you hit a ball flush right with the sweet spot of your club.
For some people just one of those perfect shots makes a whole practice session worthwhile.
Working on hitting with the sweet spot of your clubs does not only make you a more consistent ball striker, but will also improve your length especially off the tee.
This time we use four tees as a visual aid to work on our swing.
First get in your normal athletic golf posture and take aim with your club.
Then while leaving your club aligned to the target you put the five tees around your clubface into the ground.
You might also ask someone else to do this for you, so you do not have to leave your setup.
Place the tees in the following way. The first two you stick right and left to your clubface into the ground.
Leave a little space of about half an inch to an inch between the club and the tees.
The third tee you put in the middle of the other two. You use that one to tee your ball up as usual.
Finally you place the last two tees three to five inches behind and in front of the ball aligned to target.
If you cannot stick your tees into the ground because you are on the range or something, just place them on the ground.
The little grid you just built will help you to hit the ball more consistently with the sweet spot of your clubs.
You want to swing along the tees that are aligned to the target line and through the little gate you built around your ball.After a couple of swings you will notice how this visual guide will improve your ball striking swing by swing. So use the guide to work on all your shots, especially those you are struggling most with.
- Place two tees left and right of your golf ball so they form a little
- gate for you to swing through.
- Place another pair behind and in front the ball aligned to target.
