Achieve Your Goal by Nadene Gole 12 discovergolf.com.au tip share Fairway woods are designed to sweep the ball off the ground. Key points • In your stance, play the ball closer to the instep of your lead foot. • Set up with the the shaft nearly vertical to the ground. • Allow your hands to hang directly under your chin. • Make a U-shaped swing using a sweeping action through impact. • Maintain a relaxed tempo. Drill 1: Brush Ball Two Place a second ball down directly behind the the first, just outside your back foot. Swing the club back slowly, rolling the second ball gently out of the way with the back of your clubhead. This drill promotes a wider swing arc with less lifting for a sweeping U-shaped swing.
