DRILL CENTER: COMBINING SKILLS

Learning how to integrate how your hands and arms work, with how your body moves. This is a step-by-step process. If you follow the process then having them work together is fairly easy to develop. But if you do not train them in the correct sequence you can dramatically increase the compensation necessary to hit the ball consistently.

DRILL CENTER: COMBINING SKILLS
  • FOUR STEPS

    Set up to the ball. First hinge your wrists and set the club on your trail shoulder. There needs to be no tension in your shoulder sockets to do this. Then Push your trail hip out of the way and turn your upper body until it is at a 90 degree angle to the target line. Then with your trail hand pu...

  • FRONT LOADER DRILL

    Get in your set up position. Then put the club out in front of you where you want it to go after impact. Then let the weight of the club and or momentum swing the club back into the backswing. Let the club swing where it wants to go. Then swing down and hit the ball. This really helps you feel th...

  • IMPACT DRILL - FULL SWING

  • LEAD HIP ACTION

    Start with small swings, maybe using just your trail arm. As you swing the club into the ball, the lead hip socket should move farther away from the ball or the target line. That is done with the lead leg pushing it away, not just straightening, learning to sync out these two motions. The club th...

  • PULL BACK DRILL

    How the handle of the club works directly affects the clubhead. In this drill, the task is to hit the ball. Pull the handle back until it is even with where the ball was. The clubhead should stay closer to the target than the handle. This helps establish your lead sides roll in the swing and crea...

  • RIGHT FOOT BACK

    Set up to the ball. Drop your trail foot back until the toe of your trail foot is even with the heel of your lead foot. As you swing back, your trail hip will now be out of the way. This creates the space you need to swing your arms. On your downswing, leave your trail foot or heel on the ground....

  • RIGHT FOOT LEFT TOE DRILL

    The rotor drill helps you loosen your arms and shoulder sockets. You swing your arms in a circle in front of your body. They do not go around you. They work like the propeller of a plane. Once you can do that, turn your body on the backswing and let your body turn on the follow-through as you swi...

  • RIGHT FOOT STEP BACK DRILL

    As you swing the club on the backswing, step your trail foot back 6 to 12 inches. This moves your trail hip out of the way. It makes it so much easier to rotate your body. You start to feel very free to swing and rotate instead of the coil feel. This is much easier on your body and creates a much...

  • ROLL THE BALL ON THE FACE - WEDGE

    Put a dot on the clubface on the fourth groove from the bottom and in the center of the face. Set up to the ball holding the club in just your trail hand. Place the dot on the face on the back of the ball. Roll the ball towards the target. The ball should not slide off the face. This helps you fe...

  • WALK AWAY DRILL

    Set up to the ball just outside the first ball. As you make your backswing, you step your trail foot back. Then step your lead foot back and hit the ball. You keep repeating this for as many balls as you have lined up. This is important because your instinct needs to be to move away from the ball...

  • WALK THROUGH DRILL

    As you swing, step forward with your trail foot. When you reach the top, step forward with your lead foot, then hit the ball. This helps to stabilize your lower body as your swing. It also loosens up your arms and shoulders. This allows you to swing and step and hit the next ball. If your arms an...
