How to get a power boost at impact—like the pros do
Analyzing Zach Johnson's swing it's easy to see how he defended his title in the Valero Texas Open and why he was in the top eight in driving accuracy on the PGA Tour in 2007 and '08.
When you play with golfers who shoot under 80 regularly, the sound of their shots is a little different, isn't it? They compress the ball with a downward strike that is powerful and efficient. The sound of the ball jumping off the clubface and piercing the air gets your attention. Even their putting strokes look better, the contact sounds more solid, and the ball rolls smoothly instead of skidding. If you want to know how they do it, these drills are designed to help you sense what impact feels like to a 70s-shooter.
