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.

3 Putting Drills To Improve Your Putting

I want to improve my putting. I want some putting drills to help me improve my short putts as well as my lag putts. My trouble is a get bored fairly easy on the putting green so any putting drills that can be incorporated into games with my buddies would be great. Here are some of the best putting drills that we often use to help our students improve their putting:

Lag Drill 
When it comes to putting for distance, we all tend to miss longer putts more short and long as opposed to right and left. This is one of my favorite putting drills. Place a tee anywhere where the putting green and fringe meet. Begin by hitting putts from varying distances from 10 to 50 feet towards the tee. The goal is to stop your golf ball as close to the fringe as possible. Challenge a friend or challenge yourself by continuing the putting drill until you can stop so many balls in side of a certain distance. This will be determined by your current skill level.

Pull Back Drill
The pull back drill is one of the g…

Member Question - How To Control Putting Speed

Member Question: I have a hard time with hitting two putts in a row the same speed. Even on the practice green, my putting speed is horrible. I can try to hit a ball about 15 feet and try to hit a second ball to barely touch it. The second ball rarely comes close to being close to the first ball. Sometimes it is long and sometimes it is short. The result is just not consistent. Any putting tips to help me with my putting speed?

Thank you for your question. When students are that inconsistent with speed of putts or distance control, it is typically because they are not hitting the putts solid.

Now, what does that mean in English? In hitting any shot solid it means that you hit the club-face in the same spot on every stroke. If you need to know how to find the sweet spot on your putter, it is easy to do. Simply let take your putter by the grip and let it dangle using only your forefinger and thumb. Next take a golf ball and start tapping the putter face. Once the club head goes straigh…
