If you’re like most amateur golfers, you probably don’t pay much attention to the bottom of your golf swing, particularly the contact you make with the ground. In fact, the majority of players don’t actually hit the ground when they swing their club. But hitting the ground is essential for a solid stroke.

In this quick lesson, PGA Professional Michael Peterson teaches you a simple exercise you can do on the range or in your backyard to start making cleaner contact with the ball and become a more consistent golfer. He demonstrates several of the expert swing tips you’ll need to get the most out of your stroke, and explains why the line test is such an important drill for every amateur!
