How to compress the golf ball
Here are two points to show you how to compress the golf ball. Firstly, at address ensure that your hands are fractionally ahead of the ball. This will encourage the shaft lean we are looking for through impact. Then you need to check the strike itself and a great drill for this is to place a duster just behind the ball as I have done here. You are looking to strike the ball a) without touching the duster and b) without taking a huge divot. this will ensure your angle of attacj is steep enough without becoming a ‘digging’ action. If you can do this you’ll be compressing the ball through impact for the ideal angle of attack and perfect launch conditions. Hit 20 balls using this drill then take the duster away and try to replicate the same action – you should notice how much the quality of your ball striking improves!
