The Wrist Hinge Drill

Wrist Hinge

While this fault may look silly, you’d be surprised how many players suffer from it. At the top of the backswing, some players are gripping the club so tightly, that their wrists do not hinge at the top.  If you are so focused on keeping the clubface on-line throughout your swing, you will likely exhibit some form of this fault ...

How to Feel the Lag Position

A little while ago I posted a drill called the Cart Lag Creator Drill, where the concept was to force yourself to lag the club properly by sticking a golf cart in the way of your downswing.

Headcover Power Drill

This drill helps players who keep their right elbow too close to their body at the top of their backswing.

The headcover will ... Read More »

This position is also called the “reverse C” finish. If you’re falling backwards after a shot, or notice your body weight on your hind leg after a shot (which is much more common than ...

3 Tips to Generate More Distance Off the Tee

Distance off the tee can give you a huge advantage over your competitors, being able to hit wedges into par fours, rather than 5 irons, and hitting par 5’s two can drastically reduce your score (assuming you can putt, of course). Sadly, golfers tend lean towards the self-destructive swing techniques when trying to gain those extra yards.  Use these distance ... Read More »

Impact & Distance

If you imagine your wrists, arms and hands in a race to impact, who should win? The clubhead? Your arms? Your wrists? The answer is – your wrists. The clubhead should trail your wrists coming into impact, because your wrists should still be releasing from their cocked position. This can only happen properly if you created lag on the downswing. ... Read More »
