Practicing at the range is good, but if you have a swing fault, then instead of improving your swing with more repetitions, you just end up ingraining the swing fault more into your swing.

In Cardiogolf, you’ll be doing a battery of exercises designed to improve your body movement and swing technique. Consistently, repeating golf swing exercises without hitting a ball can accelerate your improvement on the golf course. Without the judgment of where the ball is going, you can repeat the correct swing motion until it is ingrained into your memory and then the motion will be comfortable and natural on the golf course.

Back Arm Only Drill
  • Stand in your golf stance holding out your back arm and place your other arm behind your back.
  • Think of the palm of your hand of the back arm as the clubface of your golf club. Try to return it square at impact.
  • Swing back as if you were making a backswing and then make your downswing and follow-though.
  • Return to the start position and for 8 to 10 repetitions.Back Arm Only Drill on a Downhill Slope

In my opinion, daily practice is the key to success towards any goal.  Making 10 practice swings a day or exercising  for 5 minutes everyday will get you playing better and in better shape than  exercising or practicing for two or three hours once a week. First of all, it is always hard to find big chunks of time to do massive workouts or beat balls on the driving range.  Secondly, the long workouts or practice sessions usually lead to fatigued swings, injuries and ingrained bad habits.

There is something to be said about the momentum of taking small daily steps towards a goal that is cumulatively better than taking big steps with less frequency.

Use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to practice everyday.  If you don’t have room to swing a regular golf indoors or you can’t make it to the golf course or driving range, use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to practice anywhere and at anytime.

Today we focus on wrist action-

Ideally as you swing back, the wrists hinge naturally. Every golfer has a different degree of angle in the wrists, but most good ball strikers create the wrist hinge at about the 3/4 of the way back position in the backswing. So that the club and arms form the letter “L” as shown in the photo on the left. If you lack wrist hinge, then you will probably end up hinging or bending your elbows instead, destroying a major power lever in your swing. This drill will help you feel how the wrists hinge on the backswing.

Y to L Drill 

  • Hold a Shortee Club with both hands and set up to hit a shot
  • Notice how your arms and club form the letter “Y”.
  • Make a wide takeaway, hinge your wrists and stop at the point where your front arm and club form the letter “L”. 
  • Hold the position for a moment, swing to the top and finish swing. 
  • Return to the start position and repeat for 8 to 10 repetitions.
