Swing slowly at first.  Concentrate on  making solid contact  with the ball. Always  think tempo and  rhythm. Once you can  hit consistently good  shots, work on hitting  the ball off the grass. You may be surprised  how far you can hit the  ball with your feet  together as you groove  your swing. This drill  helps you in many ways.  It's a good drill to do  every practice session  as a warm-up.
