Golf Tips - Step-Slide-Step Drill - Improving Your Golf Footwork

By Sharon Miller, LPGA Member

As you swing back, bring your left foot to your right instep without allowing it to touch the ground. The forward swing is started when the left foot starts moving back to its original position.

Practice with continuous swings, back and forth, while hitting balls. One thing is certain, you cannot swing fast while doing this drill! The great thing about this drill is that it will help with timing, rhythm, balance, footwork, weight transfer, and the finish - if you go to the correct finish. *

Slice Cause: Weight Shift Staying behind the ball is one of the most common causes of the slice, you must move through the ball to the finish
Cure For Push Shots: Bad Finish Keep your left arm connected to your body during the finish so that your arms can not swing out and push the ball out to the right
Release Through The Swing Use the step-through drill to practice bringing your right side forward on the downswing, allowing you to finish your swing and not hang back
