Find The Ground, Then The Ball

Often in lessons, I see golfers take practice swings that "feel good" but couldn't possibly work if the ball was actually there. There are a few reasons why this would be true, but one of the most common that I see is to take practice swings where the club doesn't make contact with the ground OR where it makes contact with the ground way behind the ball. This is asking your brain to make on the fly adjustments, which are hard to use as the platform for building your swing.

After you have done a drill to get a feeling, or image, take a practice swing where the club makes contact with the ground in the way that you want. THEN put step up to the ball and try to just press repeat.
