Return to sender.

If your chest is facing the ball at impact your spine angle will remain stable and your hands and arms will have time to swing the club into the ball on the original shaft plane. To hit the ball with any degree of consistency, your lower body needs to remain quiet through the swing. If you are having trouble getting yourself into the correct impact position just think about returning the club to its 'address position' at impact.

If you want to improve your game, give us a call on 95173471 and make an appointment for a lesson with David.
