A Drill for Hitting It Pure from Michael Breed

I've got a video from GC's "video vault" -- a brand new one, posted Thursday! This one's from Michael Breed and it's a simple drill to help you learn how to hit the ball in the center of the club face more consistently. I like it because you can do it in your backyard without a ball, as well as when you hit balls on the practice range.

Did you notice that he's allowed an extra inch or so on either side of the club head? Here's a still from the video that shows that extra space:

How much space to leave between the tees

Once the weather warms up a bit, you can do this drill in your backyard when you can't get to the range.

And no, there's no shortcut around this kind of practice. The only way to improve your ballstriking is to hit balls and do drills like this. But if you focus on what you're doing, you don't need to spend hours each day to get better. This is a really simple drill that can dramatically improve your contact with just a few minutes of practice a few times a week. Let me repeat that: Just 10 minutes of focused practice a day, three or four days a week, can really make a difference in your game.

In case you can't see the video after the first paragraph, here's the link to the original at
