GOLFTEC: Shaft Address Position DrillSome of the constant problem areas of the golf swing such as contact, slicing and having that all too common out-to-in path, can be fine-tuned at the impact.

Easier said than done, right?

Talking specifics here, the location of the shaft has a huge effect on all of those outcomes of the swing.

Often times at impact, golfers have their handle position of the shaft too far behind the clubhead. This directly results in a swing that is less than great, as well as potentially adding all the unwanted factors of a poor swing that were mentioned previously.
