A Brief Review Of Golf Full Swing Drills Recommended By Experts
Every golfer’s ultimate dream is to play long and straight drives with superior consistency. To achieve these three elements players need a combination of three skills – confidence, concentration, and technical capability. These can be developed and improved on the practice range, in a less stressful environment, by routinely following certain golf full swing drills.
It’s well known that time constraint is a problem that every amateur golfer faces. Hence, the drills given below are designed to have maximum impact on the golf full swing. The drills given below will focus on the technical fundamentals of the swing. Put these full swing drills into practice and reap the utmost benefit.
Fault Spinning Out
The easiest way to improve the full swing is to eliminate the faults from it. One of the most problematic issues with the swing is mistakes occurring during the downswing. Players sway and instead of beginning the downswing with the feet and hips, the upper body take control of the downswing.
A simple drill can correct this fault. Use two extra clubs while practicing swings on the driving range. Place a club vertically, close to your leading foot (left leg in case of right-handed players). Your left knee and hip must touch against the vertically positioned club. The second club must be placed near the ball; the club and the target line must be parallel to each other. Now, when you play the swing your knee and hip must bump the vertically placed club. If it does, it means you’re using your lower body to initiate the downswing.
Swing Through Drill
The Fault Spinning Out drill focuses on correcting the swing sequence problem, whereas this drill is designed to ensure you work on the various elements of a full swing. Begin the drill by using just 40 to 50 percent of the grip pressure on the club. When your hands are at the hip level on the backswing, the toe end of the club must be pointing towards the sky. Strive for a smooth transition and while bringing down the club, flip the hands over (i.e.) the right hand must turn over. After hitting through the ball the toe end of the club must again be pointed towards the sky. As the player hits through the ball, the elbow of the left hand must be tucked on the left side of the body. Following this drill will ensure the players swing through the ball properly and the club face is correctly squared up at impact.
