Cardiogolf 1000 Practice Swing Challenge

If your hips are tight and inflexible, then it will be difficult to make a correct weight shift and rotation. This exercise may be easy for some people, but for those who lack rotation in their hips will find it difficult and they need to work on getting more flexible in this area for a better weight shift.

Hip Rotation
  • Stand in a shoulder width stance.
  • Lift your right toe up off the ground and point your toe inward as you place your toe on the ground.
  • Hold the position for 8 counts and return to the start position.
  • Lift your right toe up off the ground and point your toe outward as you place your toe on the ground.
  • Hold the position for 8 counts and return to the start position.
  • Repeat on opposite leg.
  • Repeat exercise for 8 to 10 repetitions on each side.

Cardiogolf 1000 Practice Swing Challenge

The challenge is straightforward-simply make 1000 practice swings, 30 swings a day, during the month to improve your swing technique and increase clubhead speed.  You don’t need to go to the driving range or golf course, you can simply make practice swings in your garage or living room at home a few minutes a day (just make sure that you don’t whack the ceiling or walls!)

If you don’t have enough room to swing a regular club, use the ‘Shortee Practice Training Club’ by GolfGym.  Click here for more information. 

Off-Course Fitness Tip-One Leg Standing Balance Test: Test balance and stability

This test measures your ability to stay balanced throughout your golf swing. If you are unable to perform this test, it is likely you will have difficulty holding a balanced finish and will be limited in the amount of force you can apply to the golf ball while maintaining good fundamentals.

On-Course Golf Tip-Quick Alignment Check

If you have a hard time aligning yourself up on the golf course, try this quick alignment check to assure you are aiming at your target.

  • Aim down your target line.
  • In your set up position, stay in your posture and simply point your front arm out as shown.
  • Your front arm should point parallel to your target line, not at your target.
  • If it is pointing directly at your target or any other direction except for parallel to target line, then you need to adjust your set up until you are aligned correctly.

Off-Course Fitness TipHalf Kneeling Rotation: Test flexibility between upper and lower body

This test measures the overall flexibility between your upper and lower body, along with your core stability. Having good separation between your upper and lower body facilitates greater speed and power in your golf swing. Limited separation can result in a number of swing faults including too much lateral movement (sway or slide) and loss of posture.

On-Course Golf Tip-

Alignment is the easiest fundamental to work on, and probably one of the most neglected principles of golf. A good shot is useless unless it is going toward your intended target.

First, you align the clubface square to your target line, and then you align your body. One of the biggest mistakes I see, as a teacher, is when people line up their body to the target first, then set the clubface down. This sequence usually makes people misalign their bodies, causing them to twist and turn inappropriately to get the ball to the target. Do not make the mistake that 90 percent of higher-handicappers do by not taking the time to align the body correctly.

The easiest and most effective way to practice your align correctly is to set-up in an alignment station.

Alignment Drill

  • Place a club or alignment rod down on the ground, pointing it parallel to your target.
  • With a secure grip and stepping forward with your back foot, set the clubface down behind the ball with the leading edge perpendicular to your target line.
  • Then set your front foot into position and adjust your back foot into place so that both are parallel to your target line.
  • Your feet, hips, knees, shoulders and even eye line should be parallel to your target line. Avoid aiming your body at the target.
  • This closes you off and promotes an inside-out swing or makes you hook the ball excessively. You may even come over the top on the downswing to pull the ball back towards your target.
  • Practice hitting to targets in an alignment station so you can teach yourself to aim correctly.

On-Course Golf Tip-Simplify Your Set-Up for Both Driver and Irons

Keep your set-up simple. Use the same set-up for your iron and driver. The ball position differs for a driver and irons, but the distance you are to the ball remains the same. Watch the video to see how to simplify your set up.

Off-Course Fitness Tip-Half Kneeling Rotation: Test flexibility between upper and lower body

This test measures the mobility in your hamstrings and lower back, but can also detect certain problems or stiffness in your hips, which can limit a proper set up for your full swing short or putting stroke. If you are unable to perform this test, you will not be able to maintain your posture (body angles) throughout your swing, which will make it difficult to keep the club on plane. Low test results may also be related to loss of power, loss of posture and swaying.

On-Course Tip-Bend From Your Hip Sockets

A common problem among high-handicappers and even elite golfers is a lack of mobility in the pelvis and hip area from hours of sitting and lack of activity.

To maximize your full potential in the golf swing, you must have the ability to take your joints and muscles through their full range of motion. Performing exercises that focus on muscles that are chronically tight will help your become more efficient in your golf swing.

Learning to set up properly is the key to a better swing.

Bend From Your Hip Sockets

  • Stand in a shoulder width with your spine straight, holding onto a golf club.
  • Bend from your hip sockets as you keep your spine straight and set the clubhead on the ground.
  • Add a bit of knee flex.
  • Let your arms hang naturally as you grip the club.
  • Your weight should be evenly distributed between your heels and your toes.

Off-Course Fitness Tip-Hip and Pelvic Tilt: Test measure range of motion in hips and low back

This test measures the range of motion in your lower back and hips and reveals your capacity to engage your abs and gluteus muscles. To transfer power from your lower body to your upper body in the golf swing, the ability to control your pelvis is imperative for power in your swing and limiting the chances of injury to your lower back. Low test results may also be related to S-posture, loss of posture and lack or rotation.
