A common problem I see with students is topping the ball or “giving the ball a headache”. A lot of times this is caused by having an incorrect concept in our minds.  Often times we think try to get under the ball, lift the ball, or hoist the ball in the air.  Replace those thoughts with pinch the ball, trap the ball, or down and through. The latter thoughts will provide a more descending blow and allow you to hit more crisp golf shots. Give this these simple thoughts a try this early spring to help jump start your season.
