Eric Cogorno: Learn to Compress the Golf Ball

The best golfers in the world all understand how to compress the golf ball and how it's one of the most important aspects of great ball striking. Luckily for all of us, Eric Cogorno returns this week and is helping us to LEARN TO COMPRESS THE GOLF BALL.

As the main man explains, a clubface that is square or closed makes it easier to compress the golf ball. And where the clubface is at the delivery position – or at last parallel – will dictate your release pattern, your body angles and your compression. In this video, Eric shows you how to use your grip and wrist conditions to get the clubface in the best position to compress the ball and has some drills you can use to practice.
