Strange tip I know…but I’ve seen this trick help many golfers.
Like Darrell says in the video it is difficult for many golfers to take their mind off the golf ball when practicing.
You may be wondering “why would I want to take my mind off hitting the golf ball, isn’t that the whole point of golf.” Think of it this way, is it possible to make a good golf swing without hitting a ball? I think so.
For many golfers the second you put a ball in front of them their natural swing disappears and they start to hit AT the ball, not THROUGH it.
When you aren’t hitting through the ball you are slowing down at impact. Slowing down at impact can cause a whole bunch of nasty things to happen to your golf swing, not to mention it robs power and distance from your golf shots.
The marshmallow trick allows you to focus on your swing NOT what you are hitting. Once you focus on your golf swing it is much easier to accelerate through the point of impact.
Like Darrell explained in the video the best way to practice with this trick is to swing and imagine hitting an object that is a foot or so past the ball/marshmallow. The ball or marshmallow will naturally get in the way. When the ball is just getting in the way as you accelerate toward the imaginary object you will know that you are hitting through the ball.
This will maximize your distance and and eliminate all the problems that come from decelerating before impact.
