Swing Drill Exercises
by: Brian Kendall

It’s said that the more you practice the better you get and it is true for golf as well. One of the most basic golf exercises is practicing the swing, but the swing can make or break you game, so swing drills are important. First let’s go over a few golfing basics.

Your stance and the ball position

You should stand with your feet shoulder width apart and imagine you are standing next to a ladder on the ground. Your feet are on one side of the ladder and the target line on the other side. The target line is the imaginary line between your position and your target.

Your grip and wrists

You should maintain a firm grip but not be tense. You should aim for control instead of muscle. Your wrist position at the moment of impact is essential to getting good distance, more important than force. Don’t allow your wrist to collapse at impact.

Swing drills

A swing is a rotational movement and the key to it is to stay in the same plane during both the downswing and backswing. Imagine the swing as a round table top, tip it up on edge and place it on the ball. The bottom half of tat table is the area your club arcs through over the entire swing.

Put a handful of tees into the ground a few inches apart. Swing at one and then continue down the line. The goal is to be able to consistently clip at the middle of the tee while you stay in the swing plane.

Rhythm and balance

The great golfers all have great rhythm. You can notice on TV or in person and it is the key to a good swing. But you need to have good balance to have good rhythm. Do not rush the swing. Keep your weight distributed evenly between your right and left foot. Now do a smooth pull back and swing down easy. Every segment of your swing is to be smooth and you should as if you are a well oiled golfing machine.
