Rugby might embrace the drop-kick, but in golf, well, not so much. A drop-kick occurs when the club -- usually a driver or fairway wood -- comes in at a low angle and the clubhead skids off the ground before impact, leaving a shallow divot. Golf Digest 50 Best Teacher Dean Reinmuth
says an improper shoulder turn and a bad weight shift are the primary causes for the clubhead bottoming out too soon. Here's Reinmuth's fix: Simulate your weight shift wearing socks on a carpeted floor. Make some swings, and feel your weight transferring from the ball of your right foot to the ball of your left foot as you swing through.
