Ladies Golf Drills

Often we are asked by ladies who are just beginning to play the game what exactly is a ladies golf drill. Well, I can tell you that it is not near as scary as it sounds and does not require a power drill. If you have played other sports before, I am sure that you have participated in drills to improve certain skills and develop proper fundamentals. For instance, if you were or are a basketball player, you have completed drills to improve your shooting or dribbling. In the basketball movie Hoosiers, the new coach, Norman Dale, begins the year by running his entire practice making the players run drills to instill fundamentals in them.
When it comes to golf, improving your swing or stroke fundamentals is the key to playing better golf no matter your skill level. The professionals that you see on television every weekend still work on fundamentals during their practice. There are different drills for various parts of the game. We will give you some examples below…

Ladies Full Swing Drill
Players of all skill levels have a challenge with keeping their balance. A great way to improve your full swing is to improve your balance. Balance works in two directions. You probably automatically thought about your balance from your toes to your heels. However, you also need proper balance from right to left as well.
Good news! This is easy to check and monitor! As you set up to the golf ball, simply sway or move your weight right and left until you find your balance in the center of your feet. Once you are comfortable with that, do the same thing from your toes to your heels. Feel centered?
Now for the big test… swing the club and hold your finish to a count of three. Be careful not to count fast as it is not 123 but more of a 1…2…3. At the end of the three, you should still have your balance and not be falling in any one direction or have more weight in your toe, heel, or to the outside of your lead foot.

Ladies Putting Drill 
Putting comes down to stroking the ball so it goes on the proper line at the proper speed. These are really the only two things that you need to worry about during your stroke. An easy drill to do to make sure that you are starting the ball on the proper line is to stroke two foot putts. Sounds pretty easy does it not?
This exercise has multiple benefits. First you need to understand that the golf ball will start where the face of the putter or where you hit the ball on the club is pointed. No matter what. If it is pointed to the left, the ball will start rolling to the left of your target line and vice versa for right. Since you are only concerned about the starting direction you only need to stroke these short puts to determine what is happening. The other benefit is that no matter your skill level, you should make the vast majority of these putts which will place the positive image of the ball rolling in to the hole time and time again. Keep in mind that just because it goes into the hole, it can still start to the right or left of the intended starting line. The good news is that you will see it go into the hole and be able to make adjustments on your next stroke as needed.

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. 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…

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.…

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…
