Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge
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.
- 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.
