Downswing Practice

Downswing Practice

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction for McGetrick Golf Academy and today we are going to talk about the downswing. Again our swing is a little under construction so we are going to go to work. As we set up we worked with the cone on the takeaway by just going over the top of it. Here we are going to feel like, not look like, but feel like a big loop and come down inside the cone so that we don't come over the top. We are not trying to come back over the top of the cone, we are trying to come inside the cone and approach into impact. This is how we can quite casting, quite the over the top motion and a few different things, but a good teaching aid because I can whack this thing all day long and it is not going to hurt me and it is not going to break, it can take a lot of punishment. On this side of the ball the way we measure it from here is the cone has to be where the black ferrel meets the hozzle, that is how I know how far to take it back. Then as I go over it I am going to work on swinging it down inside. It helps me we work on lag and creating lag so that I can create a good impact and not cast out and knock that cone over and it does not create any injuries if you hit the cone so it is a good drill. You can sit here and practice and have good feedback. That is how to work on your downswing.

Trusting Your Swing On difficult shots that have a lot of visual trouble, just trust your swing and let it go; this will eliminate tension and increase your chances of success
Breaking 100, 90 or 80 Do not put pressure on yourself as you approach the final few holes and have a chance to break a personal milestone, take each hole on the course as a separate game and try to win that hole, then move on to the next one disregarding your previous scores
Ladder Chipping Drill A great way to develop distance control, feel and sensory perception when chipping is this ladder drill that requires you chip five consecutive balls each further than the previous one
