Video Golf Tip | Pre Set Wrist Swing Drill

One thing that average golfers, certainly beginners, need to understand is the wrist cock up and down, this way, this gives you a tremendous amount of power. Most amateurs tend to have their wrists cock this way, back and forth, so that when they come through they release the club like this. Really we are releasing the club down a lot more. So a great drill is a pre set drill with the wrists. I learned this drill from Ken Venturi, it is actually a pretty old drill, but he had a lot of amateurs work on this when he taught them in order to get the club in great position at the top. It works like this. You put the club right in front of your body and cock the club up right in front of your face this way. Right towards your cap like this. Then turn and swing through and hit. What that does is put your wrists in great shape at the top of the backswing. So I set it, turn, and my wrist is in great shape, the clubface is square at the top, right there. I am not going to explain square to you, just take my word for it, you can see that the clubface is square right here in front of me, I leave that and turn and then hit. You will be surprised at how straight that ball will go and how wonderful the shots that you hit are. I would suggest you first start clipping tees out of the ground. It takes a few shots before you really get the trust for it because it is a little bit different. You might have seen a great player, Ryan Moore, actually play that way in a PGA Tour event and finish pretty well. It is a pretty good drill.

Baseball for One-Plane Golfers The one plane golf swing is identical to a baseball swing but instead of hitting the ball at waist level you are hitting the ball on the ground so just bend over a little more.
Downhill Lies for Juniors Teaching juniors how to hit a downhill lie is as simple as aligning shoulders with the slope
"""The Box"" Scoring Zone" When you hit your approach shots try to get them to land in The Box which is three yards in front and behind the hole, this will make sure that you are always putting from the side of the hole where there is less speed to deal with
