Let the Club do the Work

Well, my husband taught me an interesting thing at the driving range last week. I was having trouble with my irons, as usual - they're not my favourite clubs. (Give me my driver any day....)

So what he said to me was this:

Let the club do the work!
Don't use your arm muscles!
Feel the weight of the iron!
Let the weight of the iron hit the ball!

Then he asked me to take a few continuous swings back and forth to feel the weight of the iron. Then he told me to close my eyes and repeat this action. Then I had to simulate the full swing without using my muscles, just the weight of the iron. Gradually he told me to incorporate my hip rotation into the swing to increase my power.

After I did this for a while, I found myself being able to successfully hit the ball with each one of my irons. I was thrilled!!!!!! Can't wait to now go out on the course and show off my new skill.
