Golf Lesson – Keep The Pressure in Your Right Heel
Hi. Robin, here. Are you are player who struggles
with your right heel coming off the ground too early in the down swing? It’s a very common
fault. It’ll mean your hips are working incorrectly. Your right hip will be working too far forward.
You’re probably spinning your hips open too early. Well, that’s here you’ve got a simple
drill. What I want you to do is take your sand wedge. I want you to place it under your
right heel at address so you can see the club shaft is nigh off the ground. And, from here,
this will do two things for you. One, it’s going to give you a little bit of awareness
in where your pressure point should be in the back swing. I want you to increase the
pressure on the club head. Almost feel like you’re pushing the club head into the ground.
From here in the down swing I want you to keep the pressure on the club head. If you
do that, as you start transferring your weight the club shaft will stay up. Obviously, if
you’ve got your old fault, of the right heel coming up too early, the club shaft is going
to hit the ground early. You’ll see that clearly. You’ll be getting good feedback to whether
you are doing it correctly or not. So, very simple. Sand wedge under the right heel. Increase
the pressure on it in the back swing. Keep the pressure on it, almost pushing off it
in the down swing, keeping the club shaft up. I want you to try to feel like it’s staying
up in the air until you’ve made impact with the ball.
