Are Address and Impact Positions the Same?

March 2, 2015

Asking players to mimic impact position usually draws a confused look or they take their address position and say that it is the same at impact.  A quick check of any good player will show that impact and address positions are quite different.

Understanding that address and impact are different is a huge shift conceptually for most players.  In fact if you are attempting to be in a similar position at impact to your address position, you are giving yourself very little chance of hitting the ball well.

The video below demonstrates the key differences between address and impact.

Next time you practice, copy both the address position and impact positions in the video above and see how it benefits your golf.
