Impact is an enigma for many players. In this Tip of the Week, my goal is to shed some light on how to get that great impact position the pros do with such ease. Impact simply means that you are compressing the ball, striking down behind the ball, which is what gets the ball airborne.
I see too many players do the exact opposite. Instead, of hitting down, they are scooping up on the ball. Scooping the ball does get it airborne, but it sets the ball on a flight that is too high and travels a short distance.
