Golf Practice Drills

Students tend to learn in three different ways. Some students use golf practice drills so they can get and understand the feel of what is supposed to be happening during the motion. Others are able to simply hear instructions and change their motion. These students are classified as audio learners. Lastly, there are students that want to watch a movement and try to mock it themselves. As most of us already know, these are visual learners.
There are many golf practice drills and you must select one that is correct to fix the challenge in your golf swing. Let’s be honest, no matter how good or bad your current swing is, making it better usually comes down to executing the fundamentals of golf.
Below you will find some common golf drills for practice that you can use to get your game back on track:

1. Full Swing Golf Practice Drill 
It really does not matter you skill level, when the full swing gets out of whack it typically means that are losing your balance somewhere during the motion. You need to understand that in the golf swing balance happens in two directions. You need to pay attention if you are in balance side to side or left to right. This is usually not that big of a deal and even beginners will find of roll their eyes at that one. However, you will really want to pay attention to the balance in your feet from front to back or toes to heels. At address or when setting up to the golf ball, you should be able to find good golf posture with you pockets behind your heels, able to wiggle your toes and put them back on the ground. Too many amateurs will get too much weight towards their toes through impact and not much good happens from there. A good way to check your overall balance is to take a swing and be able to hold your finish for a SLOW count of 1-2-3. Your weight should be evenly distributed over your front or target side foot.

2. Putting Golf Practice Drill 
Players of all skill levels get into funks where they have a hard time holing or making short putts. Most of them look to their mechanics to find what is ailing them. If you are having a difficult time making short putts, find a flat hole location or one that is slightly uphill but the ball will not be breaking or turning from side to side. Place a tee two feet away from the hole. Yes…just two feet and start putting. The face of the putter is much more important on shorter putts than is speed. Being this close to the hole, you are able to see where the ball is coming off of the putter face and the vast majority should still go in the hole. So, not only are you learning to put the ball on the correct line you will be growing your confidence as you watch the ball go in the hole time and time again.

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.

I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.

Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…
