From the distance it flies to the direction it travels, where your ball contacts the face of your club plays a major role in every single shot you hit. In fact, missing the sweet spot by just a few millimeters can have dramatic (and sometimes disastrous) results.
If you want to add more consistency to your game making solid contact and hitting the ball in the middle of the clubface is a must.
Next time you’re at the driving range try this simple drill and you’ll be well on your way to striking the sweet spot more often...
If this is too easy stagger the tees so that the tee closest to your feet is out in front of the ball and the tee farthest from your feet is behind the ball. Not only will this encourage you to swing your club between the two tees, but it will also encourage you to swing on an inside-to-out path and help you avoid coming over the top.
Don’t worry about the direction the ball is traveling when you’re doing this drill - just focus on making solid contact with the center of the clubface. Working on this for just a few minutes each time you are at the driving range will really help you hone your ball striking and improve your consistency.
