The Punch Shot P20
Digital Art - Digital Artwork
Today's Lessons: Jack drove his golf cart to the end part of the driving range where no driving range ball could reach us. There, again we started with the full swing sand-wedge - on to a longer club like the 7 & 5 irons, 7 & 3 woods and lastly the driver. For each club he advised me to stance my body a bit taller as the irons or woods get longer. A taller stance with arms hanging loose in front make the golf swing easier to perform, according to Jack. He also touched on and demonstrated how to do the punch shot, necessary when one has to fly the ball low because of the strong winds. Ball is addressed closer to the right foot, hands displaying a small "y" way ahead left of the ball. Upon ball impact, the hands must continue to carry or push left on the ball line but still with the left chin behind the ball until pushed by the right shoulder toward an upright position.
In all these shots, he mentioned about the swing plane always being dynamic and never the same. But, what is important is to find the line you are going to hit in on, just like putting, chipping and pitching. Jack says, With the arms hanging straight down, take the club up, do the shoulder turn then back down through the ball down the line, and not out at the ball. Strike through the ball then follow through then finish on, balanced. These simple instructions from Jack, confirms what I thought should be the swing plane.
