If you struggle with heel strikes or worse yet the shanks, then this drill is for you. Swing too far from in to out? Too far from out to in? This drill is for you. It is, quite simply, the kind of drill that so many golfers should utilize as their staple practice drill whether they are warming up or just getting some solid practice in.A few points to note:You can use a club box, a 2x4 (be careful!) or a partially empty plastic water bottle laying on it’s sideAlign the box at the targetTee the ball up approximately 2” inside the boxStart off with shorter irons and work your way up to the bigger clubsThis is a super drill for everybody! Keep the box in your trunk or locker and use it fior a few shots every time you’re warming up or practicing as it will always serve to give you a clear indication of a fairly neutral strike and club path - bot good things.Thanks so much for your readership and support in 2021. It has once again been a fairly challenging year, but I cannot be more grateful for my family, friends, students and the career path that I have chosen. Here’s to making 2022 your best year in golf yet! Cheers.
If you want the ball to get moving you’ve got to get your body moving and this very simple exercise is a little gem that we all should be practicing on a regular basis. I find it to be an excellent reminder of the tilts, turns and stretches we need to incorporate into the golf swing. Watch…A few checkpoint to keep in mind when doing the exercise:Hold a club across your shoulders by crossing your arms across your chestPosition the handle of the club on the lead/target side of your bodyIn the backswing get the handle to point at the ball or where the ball would beAllow the trail side to extend and the trail knee to straightenThe lead side should feel low and the trail side high as it stretches and extendsRepeat these feels as the swing moves into the downswing and follow throughIn the post impact portion of the swing the trail side lowers/shortens while the lead side will elevate and extendThis exercise does such a good job at reminding us what a real swing should FEEL like. While the positions of the drill are a little extreme they carry through nicely into an actual shot. I know this simple, take home exercise will go a long way towards helping a large percentage of the golfers that show up on my lesson tee. Give it a try!
Too many golfers that I teach are struggling to compress the golf ball! There is a distinct lack of energy being transferred from the clubhead to the ball. Getting the club face in position in the early part of the downswing is tremendously helpful in increasing compression and the sizzle factor off the face. Here’s how…When trying this drill look for the following:Don’t try to hit balls with this - it’s all about getting the correct feelHold the club at the bottom of the grip in your lead hand with the clubhead well off the groundAs you get to the top you should see the handle out in front of your forearmDoing this drill correctly will ensure that you’re getting both the club face and the clubhead in a good spot to initiate the downswing without having to work hard to shallow the club or lay the shaft down. This should be your view when you have the club at the top of the backswing. Give it a try and see if you can incorporate the feel into your next practice or warm-up session.Thanks for reading/watching along and it is my wish that somehow I can manage to share something that helps you experience more joy while you’re out on the links. Cheers!
As golfers we typically don’t have very good awareness regarding how we are moving. We know what we should be doing, but we have a hard time executing the intended move. My explanation in the following video addresses one such situation. Watch…A few notes:I know this might sound contrary to what you’ve been trying to do for a long time, but consciously try to move forward and up through the strikeFeel that the trail shoulder makes a concerted “push” towards the target throughout the downswingSomething that has worked for my students and I has been to push off the trail foot on the way down into impactDon’t ever try to stay down or backWatch what two of the best in the business do on the way into impact. Mr. Jose Maria Olazabal and Mr. Brett Rumford…I hope you find some of these ideas to be helpful to your game and that ultimately you are able to experience more joy out on the golf course. Thanks for reading and watching!Are you interested in golf travel? If so we are going to South Africa this coming January 2022. Here’s an incredible brochure on our trip and what we have planned - SOUTH AFRICA 2022
Set Up:Tee the ball high if you’re looking for max distance, lower if you’re looking for more accuracy.Tilt your spine away from the target. Set up to hit up!Drop the trail foot back inside the target line to aid in making a bigger turn. At the Top:Make as big a pivot as your body will allow, trying to feel the trail leg straightening and the trail hip elevating.Get the handle as far back as you can into the backswing. It should travel both up and in.The longer the backswing the greater the energy you can pump into the system and the more time you have to organize on the way down. At Impact:Drive the weight down and towards the target in the early downswing.As you approach impact push hard on the lead foot. This will raise the handle, elevate the angle of attack and increase the power.Feel your hips opening up nicely to the target.I know that these simple keys will help to improve both the distance and the accuracy that you have been experiencing off the tee! Give them a go and if you have any questions, please just reach out.Cheers and thanks for reading !
