  • RIGHT ARM - LEAD ARM ONLY

    In putting and in all swings, you want your trail arm to line up with the shaft and push the shaft through the ball. You do not want any twisting in your forearm. If you put the club in your lead hand again as you swing, your arm is in line with the shaft, and your lead wrist does not twist. It c...

  • ROTOR DRILL

    As you hit the ball, you keep your arms in front of your chest and rotate your arms back to the setup position. The clubhead then works up with your arms after you hit the ball, rather than going around your body. This is important because you have to have loose shoulder sockets to allow your arm...

  • SPLIT GRIP

    Set up to the ball. Move your trail hand down on the club shaft below the grip, so there is a space between your lead hand and your trail hand. You are now holding the club like a hockey stick. Make a backswing. This will naturally make your wrists lever. Then swing back to the ball. The handle h...

  • PUSH AWAY DRILL

    Set up to the ball. Put a band around your hips. Have a friend take hold of the band and apply pressure by trying to pull you into the ball. Make a backswing. Keep the pressure on the band or even add pressure to stretch the band. Move back to set up without letting the band pull you closer to th...

  • PULLEY DRILL

    Get in setup position holding on to bands or a pulley system. The goal is to pull the pulleys or bands and create more space with your hips. On the backswing side, you push away from the pulley. Your force goes into the heel of your trail foot and on the inside. Go back to setup or impact, then a...

  • CHANGE OF DIRECTION DRILL

    To learn how to change directions, you first have to understand that there is no top in a swing. It is a constant motion. So as your arms start back, your body starts moving forward. It is the same as throwing or hitting a baseball or tennis ball. The sequences are all the same.

  • FOOTWORK DRILL

    How your feet pressure the ground makes your body move. Start by hitting some balls flat-footed. Let your feet roll in, but your heels can not come off the ground. Let your lead foot roll in on the backswing; then your trail foot rolls in on the downswing and into the follow-through. Blend the tr...

  • 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...

  • EXAGGERATION DRILL

    Being willing to exaggerate is the key to quick changes in your swing. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to make small changes. You cannot feel the difference. So if you want to change, make big exaggerations. Do less and less exaggeration if you take the club too much to the inside and co...

  • POSTURE DRILL

    To get into the correct posture, first, take a club and hold it up to your spine on your back. Take your normal standing posture. Make sure your toes are quiet. Now push your hips back and then tilt your spine slightly towards your trail foot. Your knees should be directly over your ankles, and y...

  • PRACTICE STATION

    Setting up a practice station is very important relative to becoming consistent. To begin, get four sticks. The first one you set down, aim at your target. The second stick goes on the ground parallel to the first stick and about one foot to the left of the first stick on a right-handed player. T...

  • WAGGLE DRILL

    When you set up to the ball, the way you move the club drastically influences how you take the club away and also how you swing. These small movements, or waggle, program what you want your swing to do. It is critical that you make these motions to help your swing function the way you intend. As ...

  • REVERSE SWING

    As you are hitting balls, take some time to swing in the opposite direction. As you swing, you are constantly contracting one side of your body and elongating the other. You need to offset that by swinging and or hitting balls in the opposite direction. It also heightens your awareness of how you...

  • THROW THE BALL DRILL

    Take a ball. Get set up and turn and throw a ball into the ball that is on the tee. You should also, just like throwing, step with your lead foot. Once you feel how the transition works, your lower body starts going forward as soon as your arm starts going back. Set up to the ball with a club. No...
