So now I'm just gonna explain the drill, right?
00:02
(upbeat rock music)
00:13
A basic but underrated skill of great ball striking
00:15
is just to be able to hit each shot
00:17
out of the middle of the face.
00:18
You look at old pictures of Ben Hogan's iron,
00:20
you'll see tiny little wear marks right in the middle.
00:22
He can do that because he has a great awareness
00:24
for where the club is throughout the swing.
00:26
So an easy drill that you can do
00:27
is an around the horn drill.
00:29
I've got five tees around this ball right here,
00:32
and I'm gonna set up to each one of them
00:33
different locations, and try to make
00:35
the necessary adjustments in my swing
00:38
to make center strikes.
00:39
But for the demonstration, I'll just set it
00:40
to this back one.
00:41
(upbeat music)
00:45
(whoosh, thwack)
00:47
So there I was able to move my low point forward
00:50
and make the necessary adjustment
00:51
to still hit a center strike.
00:52
If you can do this drill,
00:53
I think you'll hit your irons more solid
00:55
and learn to break 80.
