We cannot expect consistent and predictable results from our golf shots if we don't deliver the golf club to the ball in an equally consistent manner. One issue we often see on the lesson tee is a lot of variability in club face contact. There are various components to that but they all affect how much of the force you create in your swing is transmitted to the golf ball.

A key component of this is controlling the bottom of the swing arc. We call this "low point" and with a shot that has the golf ball on the ground, ideally it will occur just slightly after the ball. This allows us to deliver an effective loft of the club at impact and helps to get the center of gravity of the club lined up with ball. Making it consistent is a great skill to have and one few players work on.

Where the low point takes place has a lot to do with how you pivot in the golf swing, the proper movement and timing of pressure moving from address, to the top of the backswing, and through to impact and beyond.

This can be especially challenging for golfers…
