Impact position

Impact refers to the moment the clubhead strikes the ball and the position of all other body parts at that moment. Any swing can be used in golf as long as it gets the clubhead delivered to the ball at the desired clubhead speed, angle of attack, clubface direction, and contact with the golf ball under varying conditions. The quest to connect all three of these impact factors is what shapes your swing.
