Break The Ice |
by Barry Goldstein
If you fight a weak fade or slice, you're not releasing the
clubhead properly through the ball.
Chances are, you're dragging the clubhead through the hitting
zone with the heel of the club leading the toe.
Instead, you should feel as though you're wrapping the toe of
the club around the ball at impact.
If you have difficulty releasing the clubhead through the
hitting zone, imagine that there's a large block of ice sitting
on the ground just in front of your ball, between your ball and
As you swing, I want you to hit the ball and then chop the ice
in two with the toe of your club. If you hit it with the heel
of the club or the clubface, it won't break.
To break it in two, you'll have to allow the toe of the club to
pass over the toe through impact. And if you do, you'll be well
on your way to turning that weak fade into a gentle draw.
