  • ASHLEY - DIRECTING THE MOMENTUM-OF THE CLUB DRILL

    Take an alignment stick and place it on the club shaft extending it longer than the grip end. Set up to the ball with the stick touching your lead side. Make your backswing. Now make the shaft pivot behind and touch your trailside, which will work the club out into the correct arc to run into the...

  • ASHLEY - SETUP & BALANCE

    When setting up to the ball, first make sure that you are balanced. You are bending from your hips, but your toes are quiet. You need to make sure your arms have room to swing back. Set up with your lead arm on top of your left breast and your trail arm is on the side of your trail breast or on ...

  • DOT ON THE FACE

    In golf, for most shots, you want the back of the ball to hit the center of the face. Place a dot on the clubface, four grooves up from the lowest groove and in the center of the face. Put a dot on the back of the ball. The game is to connect the dots. This visual is critical to the task your bra...

  • IMPACT DRILL - PUTTING

    The trail arm works the same in most shots. It lines up with the shaft of the club you are hitting at impact. Start with your putter. Set up with just your trail arm. Your wrist is parallel to the clubface. Hit putts just using your trail arm. Your forearm should line up with the shaft. It pushes...

  • ROLL BALL

    Set three or four balls on the green with lines around the ball. Set up to the ball. Align the line on the putter, if you have one, with the line on the ball. Take a stroke and make the line roll with no wobble. Once you can do that, do the same thing making the ball go different distances and at...

  • SWING ARC

    When you set up to the ball, your trail wrist is at a 90-degree angle to your swing arc. As you swing back to waist high, your trail wrist is still at a 90-degree angle to the swing arc. As your arm swings to the top of your swing, your trail arm externally rotates in your shoulder socket. That r...

  • TEMPO DRILL

    Take your putter and set up 4 or 5 balls. Start hitting putts longer than 3 feet but shorter than 60 feet. Just find a tempo that you like. Once you find it, count it out. Using a count of one, two. Or one, two, and three. Regardless of the length of the putt or the swing, maintain the same tempo...

  • TWO ROD RELEASE DRILL

    Take the other rod and hold it on the club shaft to extend up the lead side of your body. On the backswing, point the club shaft stick at the target line or just inside it. On the downswing, the club shaft stick needs to come down in front of the hip line stick and behind, or to the right, of you...

  • ASHLEY - 3 STEPS TO BETTER ARM SWING

    This drill helps with getting rid of tension by creating a proper arm swing. Stand on just your lead foot. You drop your trail foot back and only use your toe for balance. You should be able to swing and not fall off balance. Your arms have to move a lot more than your body. Change and use your t...

  • ASHLEY - GRIP PRESSURE

    Start by taking your grip. Lift the club up until it is directly above your hands. The club will feel very light. Let the club drop until the clubhead is even with your hands. You will feel your arms tighten. Now lift the club to about a 45-degree angle and make some small circles with the clubhe...

  • ASHLEY - KNEE DRILL

    Get on your knees, tee a ball up in the middle of your body to slightly forward. Make a few practice swings. You will have to loosen up your shoulder sockets to allow your arms to swing, rotate and fold as they go around you. Hit some balls, getting the feel of loose arms and wrists. Your arms mo...

  • ASHLEY - L TO L DRILL

    Start with the club in your lead hand. Take your grip, then practice swinging the club and hinging, unhinging, and rehinging your wrists with minimal arm swing. Change hands and do the same thing. Then put the club in both hands. When your lead arm gets parallel to the ground on the backswing, th...

  • BOUNCE BALL ON FACE

    You control something with what touches it. Your hands are your only connection with the club. The more your hands become aware of and can control the face, the better player you will be. Take a sand wedge. Place it in either hand. With a ball in the other hand, drop it on the face and try to bou...

  • CHAIR DRILL

    Take a driver. Tee up a ball, then sit down in a chair to hit it. While seated, relax your shoulder sockets so your arm can swing independently of your shoulders moving. This is an essential part of the swing for not only speed but consistency. You must also let the momentum of the lever your wri...

  • CORNER DRILL

    A good picture for your swing is the areas the handle of the club swings through. Take a line directly under the butt end of the club. Extend it parallel to the target line. Just to the right of your back foot, about 6 inches, place a tee. Then put another tee the same distance in front of your f...

  • FACE CONTROL DRILL

    When it comes to playing this game well, you have to develop face control. Your hands control the face, and the face controls the ball. Every day you should set up a series of balls. Put a clubface in your hands and feel how your hands control the angle of the face. Take your grip and hit hooks, ...

  • FEEL WEIGHT

    It is important that you can feel the weight in the club and clubhead throughout the swing. To do this, turn the club upside down. Hold the clubhead end. Swing it a few times. Then turn it back to normal and swing. You will feel the weight in the club and clubhead and where it is in the arc. Do t...

  • GRIP

    Your lead hand goes on the club the way your arm hangs naturally. That is how your joints line up. You also need to have the club in your fingers. The back of the club rests in the second joint of the fingers. The trail hand goes on with the club also in the fingers and with the palm of the trail...

  • HANDLE AWAY

    To begin, choke down on the club, so the grip end of the club is above your hands. On the backswing, make the grip end of the club point away from you and towards the ground. Come back to impact; the club shaft is pointing at your body. Go to just above waist high on the follow-through. The grip ...

  • HANDS DO NOT SWING AT THE BALL

    When you swing a golf club, the instinct is for your hands to move at the ball from the top. But they do not. The reality is that your hands have to swing inside of the ball for the clubhead to move towards the ball correctly. Remember, the clubhead is not on the same arc as your arms. It is a la...

  • HINGE

    Once you are set up, hinge your wrists until the club is parallel to the ground. The only thing that moves is the club and your wrists. At this point, your wrists are in the position you want them at the top. Take the club and your arms back. The clubhead stays on the target side of your hands un...

  • L TO L

    From the set up, take the club back to waist high on the backswing. At this point, when your lead arm is parallel to the ground, you should have a 90-degree angle between the club shaft and your lead arm. Swing down through impact and into the follow-through until your trail arm is parallel to th...

  • PATH DRILL GATES

    Set up several sticks. One is on your target line. The others are spaced apart to create gates to hit the ball in between. As you practice, make the same backswing but then change the path of your arms on the downswing to make the ball go through the intended gate. Start by making swings that sta...

  • PIVOT DRILL - RIGHT AND LEFT HAND

    Learning how the hands and the handle of the club work to create the proper pivoting action of the club is one of the most critical skills in the game relative to distance and control. You do not pull the handle; use your hands the way you would snap a towel. The handle has to slow down and feel ...
