Making practice swings instead of hitting balls is a better way to improve your swing technique. If you are trying to learn the swing or make a swing change, rehearsing the move without hitting a ball will assure that you are actually doing the correct move. Repeating the motion that you want to achieve will help ingrain the move into your real swing.

The single most important moment in the golf swing is impact, and if your position is bad when you arrive there you’re in trouble.

For many average and higher-handicap golfers, their impact issues are caused by flipping their hands at impact instead of maintaining lag and forward shaft lean.

Ideally, you want to hit the ball with, not just your hands, but with your bigger muscles. What some call a full body swing-where the core muscles rotate and control the arms through impact- recruits bigger muscles to produce the swing. You create more power with faster clubhead speed and less effort.

Here is a drill to help your impact position.

Impact Drill
  • Set up to hit a shot with your Shortee Club.
  • Swing to the top and then swing down to impact.
  • Stop at your impact and hold position to check clubface.
  • Keep your abdominal muscles pulled in and keep your spine angle.
  • Simulate your golf swing as much as possible.
  • Do 8 to 10 repetitions.

Practice swings can help reinforce sound golf swing fundamentals and mechanics. Making practice swings can also get you into positions that you may not otherwise be able to get into when you swing at a ball full speed.

Watch Karen Palacios-Jansen and Christina Ricci, LPGA Teaching and Fitness Professionals, demonstrate the Cardiogolf Swing Positions.

Making practice swings instead of hitting balls is a better way to improve your swing technique.  If you are trying to learn the swing or make a swing change, rehearsing the move without hitting a ball will assure that you are actually doing the correct move.  Repeating the motion that you want to achieve will help ingrain the move into your real swing.

Cardiogolf Swing Positions
  • Set up with your Shortee Practice Training Club.
  • Swing halfway back and stop. Check the clubface to make sure it is square.
  • Swing to the top of the backswing and stop. Checking your body motion and arm positions.
  • Slowly start the downswing and stop at the halfway down point.  The clubhead should be behind the hands at this point.
  • Stop at impact. Check the clubface position and make sure your weight is shifting towards the target.
  • Slowly release the club and stop at the halfway through point.  Arms should be extended.
  • Finish the swing in a balanced position.
  • Repeat positions slowly for 8 to 10 repetitions.

Cardiogolf Daily Dose-Uphill and Downhill Lie Drill with Speed

This is your Cardiogolf 5-Minute Golf and Fitness Break where we work on our golf game and exercise at same time.

Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge

Simply taking practice swings with your stance at different levels can help prepare you for how it will feel on the golf course. Use a step or bench to simulate the uneven slope. This will not only help your swing technique but help you develop strength and balance as well.

Here is another variation of the uphill and downhill lie drill.

Uphill and Downhill Lie Drill with Speed
  • Simulate an uphill lie by placing your front foot on a step or bench.
  • Lean your weight slightly towards your back foot and hold a club or hand weight as if you were going to hit a shot.
  • Swing to the top and stop to make sure that your weight is loaded into your back leg.
  • Feel the weight on the inside of the back foot and keep the back knee slightly flexed.
  • Step carefully over the bench and assume a downhill lie, angling your body towards the slope.
  • Take a full swing and hold finish. Make sure you pivot off of your back foot.

Cardiogolf Daily Dose-Uphill and Downhill Lie Drill with Foot Lift

This is your Cardiogolf 5-Minute Golf and Fitness Break where we work on our golf game and exercise at same time.

Practice something about your game everyday.  #CardioGolfChallenge

When you play golf, you almost never have a completely flat lie on the golf course like you do at the practice range. It may be difficult to recreate those sidehill, downhill and uphill lies on the practice range, but you can do it at the gym or at home.

Simply taking practice swings with your stance at different levels can help prepare you for how it will feel on the golf course. Use a step or bench to simulate the uneven slope. This will not only help your swing technique but help you develop strength and balance as well.

Uphill and Downhill Lie Drill with Foot Lift
  • Simulate an uphill lie by placing your front foot on a step or bench.
  • Lean your weight slightly towards your back foot and hold a club or hand weight as if you were going to hit a shot.
  • Swing to the top and stop to make sure that your weight is loaded into your back leg.
  • Feel the weight on the inside of the back foot and keep the back knee slightly flexed.
  • Lift your front foot to balance on your back leg, hold for a moment, then set foot down again.
  • Return to start position.
  • Rehearse your backswing for 8 to 10 repetitions.
  • Repeat on the downhill lie.
