Strike irons better with a downward blow

Published:

Crisp iron shots rely on the clubhead striking the ball as it is still moving downwards, creating a divot after impact.

An easy way to encourage this during practice is to place an obstacle behind the ball. In this golf video tip, TG Elite Pro Gareth Johnston has placed a towel a clubhead’s width behind the ball. This promotes a downward blow for penetrating iron shots.
