Are you getting “Struck by Lightning” on the golf course when you are just around the greens. I see golfers every day who appear as if their body actually looks like they are getting struck by lightning when performing a shot around the greens. How does a golfer get to this point? Some call it using a golf club to kill a snake but I like to refer to it as getting struck by lightning. No, I am not talking about the Bishop from the movie Caddy Shack either:)
How does a golfer reach this level of “badness:)” Sometimes it can start with a thought such as “let me try and get under the ball to get the ball in the air.” We all know this is incorrect because making solid contact on the club face and using the already built in loft in the club head is what get the ball in the air. Compressing the golf against the face will help any golfer improve their contact.
The friendly comment of keeping your head down will always do the trick to help a golfer stop moving their body and making a motion to looking like they are having a spasm or going into convulsions. Golfers will top a ball and their friends will say keep your head down:) More than likely, the cause of the top was not the golfer lifting their head during the swing.
In the video below, you are going to find a terrific solution if you are suffering from getting struck by lightning on the golf course!
You can see in my You Tube video above how the golfer can improve their game with this simple drill. If you are suffering from this syndrome use a lighter grip without over accelerating the golf club through impact. A lighter grip will help you move your body and get you in sync with the swinging of the golf club. This is excellent for any golfer to try. It’s a very functional motion and takes the “hit” out of the swing.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this video or any of the videos I have on my Jess Frank Golf Academy You Tube page. I love teaching golf and helping the new and average golfer have more fun on the golf course! If you found value in this golf tip please share with your friends. The more golfers we have playing the better it is for everyone!
