  • Fault Fix – Shank

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Thursday, 12 May 2011

    Shanking the ball occurs when the golfer presents the hosel of the club to the ball at impact.

Whatever the cause of your shanks, this simple drill from TG Elite Teaching Pro Gareth Johnston...

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Thursday, 12 May 2011

    Topped shots usually occur because the club is rising as it approaches the ball rather than descending into the back of it.

In this golf video tip, TG Elite Teaching Pro Gareth Johnston presents a simple swing thought to do just that. You’ll...

    A lot of golfers desperate to cure their slice will deliberately work on changing their swing path so it’s more from out-to-in. But if the clubface remains open to the target, or square to this excessive swing path, the result is a blocked shot that starts right and stays right! A more neutral club path and clubface is required and TG...

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Wednesday, 27 April 2011

    It’s an embarrassing problem to have, isn’t it? Fatting your iron and wedge shots occurs mostly when the body’s centre moves back behind the ball at impact. Remember the body’s centre or sternum is where the bottom of your swing arc is so if you hang back behind the ball, you’re going to hit the ground first. This video tip from...

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Wednesday, 27 April 2011

    This destructive tee shot is usually caused by the clubface being excessively closed to the path of the club at impact.
