What is the cause for hitting the ball off the toe of the club and what is a good drill to correct this?

Hitting the golf ball

One possible cause is you are standing too far away from ball. Every individual golfer has to find what distance is comfortable to them. Try moving closer to the ball little by little until you start making solid contact.

You may also want to try addressing the call on the heel of the club. Coming over the top is also a potential cause of this problem. When the club approaches the ball from outside the ball-to-target line, it will travel too much to the inside after impact. This is called an out-to-in swing path and is also at the same time very steep. The only part of the clubface that can contact the ball is the toe end. This happens all too often when a player uses tries to use their muscle strength and swings too hard at the ball, causing an in-to-out path.

Here is one tip to correct this problem and shallow out your swing plane. Take a 7 iron and stand with your feet together and make shorter swings with mostly the arms. Make sure that you hinge your wrists in the back and through swings.

This will give you a better feel for the club head and teach you how to swing the club head through the ball rather than hitting at it. You will be very surprised how far you can hit the ball with this drill and how much easier it is to hit the middle of the club.

Effortless power is the secret.
