Learn Proper Extension

Learn Proper ExtensionLearn proper extension.  Extension is the release of our arms after impact that is the result of a full and powerful move through the ball.  A good extension helps both power and accuracy.  In practice, place a tee in the ground about one foot in front of your ball.  Hit your shots and then try to drive the ball over the tee and let the club head pass over it as well.  This drill will force you to extend your arms down the line instead of decelerating or pulling the club head left or right through impact.  You will gain better accuracy and contact.  On the course, pick a spot on the ground to act as your guide for extension.
