Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding (July 11)

Same pattern continued

This is the most common pattern (problem) in golf. There are a number of ways of fixing it. If your ball flight tends to start left and then curve right, and your divots are steep, point left and the ball impact is toward the toe or on the sole of the club, then you have a very steep downswing. You need to shallow out your downswing. Most steep downswings are due to a flat/inside takeaway. You then need to lift/steepen it to the top, and you have to come down over/steep just to find the ball. Take a tall box and place it about two feet behind you and in-between your target line and foot line. Take the club back with wrist cock outside the box and then miss the box to the inside on the down swing. Again the opposite impact will happen - shallow and behind divots, ball starts right but curves left and impact more heel side of middle.
