Place two tees on the ground about 4 inches apart with the back tee in your normal ball position. Work on 9 to 3, or even full swings where you strike the first tee AND the second tee. This will force you to have a downward blow as well as a shallow angle of attack (AoA). If your path is too steep, then you will have a hard time hitting the second tee without taking a massive divot.

The drill is impact with two T's. So basically what I'm going to do is I'm going to take two T's
00:00:06,000 --> 00:00:14,000
and put the golf ball on one when I'm actually hitting, but I'm going to put them about four to six inches apart.
00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:21,000
This is a classic drill that a golf digest did a great study on it and for helping, especially pure beginners,
00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:29,000
this is a great drill regardless of what your swing style is. But I find that it can be helpful for golfers who've lost that feeling
00:00:29,000 --> 00:00:35,000
of good solid impact of just kind of retool the focus that we're trying to get. Basically what it does is it
00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:42,000
forces a shallow angle of attack. So I'm going to take some half swings and I'm going to try to make
00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:47,000
contact just clipping the first T and then clipping the second T in one movement.
00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:56,000
So I'm going to try and take this little half swing, clipping both T's kind of just like so.
00:00:57,000 --> 00:01:11,000
What you'll find especially if you then add the golf ball to the first T is that if you were to try and basically pick the golf ball,
00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:17,000
you'll have no chance of hitting the second T. So it encourages you to let those arms extend
00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:26,000
and to continue letting the club work downward through contact. Now that doesn't mean that I'm going to
00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:35,000
prevent my body from rotating which actually pulls the handle up because if I were to prevent my arms from swinging,
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:39,000
what'll happen is I will hit very, very steep and I still won't be able to hit that second T.
00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:49,000
So this is just one of those good universal drills that gets you focused on what the club is doing with the ball,
00:01:49,000 --> 00:01:55,000
and ultimately can help you when you're feeling a little bit too mechanical while you're working on your impact.
00:01:55,000 --> 00:01:59,000
So I'm going to practice that good impact position and then I'm going to do a little nine
00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:06,000
to three. You can see that I clipped both T is on that shot. So that's the classic two-cheat drill
00:02:06,000 --> 00:02:11,000
working in the nine to three movement to help you work on your impact conditions.
