Step 3: Club and left arm in line

Keeping your head and body still during the swing is vital. The best way to achieve this is having firm wrists and playing the shot using your shoulders.

It's similar to the pendulum swing when you putt where everything is stationary apart from your arms and shoulders, so do the same just hit the ball slightly harder.

As you see in the left photograph, David's left arm and club is in line because he's kept his wrists firm through-out the shot. In practice thinking about this straight line and remember to not lift your head.
