3 Simple Steps to a More Consistent Golf Swing

3 Simple Steps to a More Consistent Golf Swing

What separates the good golfer from the average golfer is simply consistency. The better golfer is more reliable and more consistent time after time when they hit the golf ball than the average golfer. To learn to be consistent, I want to show you a swing that I call the 'one, two, three' swing that I think will help you be more consistent when you play golf.

An Easy Trick to Become a More Consistent Golfer

When I set up to the golf ball, I think of my golf club, hand and arms as No. one, my upper body as No. two and my lower body as No. three. On the backswing, I want to take one, two and three back together, so that my golf club, hands and arms, my upper body and lower body all swing back together.

Now on the forward-swing, the same thing, when I am at the top, I want to take No. one, my golf club, hands and arms; No. two, my upper body, and No. three, my lower body, together to develop a consistent golf swing.

Drill For a More Consistent Golf Swing

A great drill that you can do is plug the golf club into your stomach, extend your arms down, and now when I go back, as I turn, everything goes back together, I let the club unplug and it goes to the top of my swing right here. So now I am learning to swing my golf club, hands and arms, my upper body, and my lower body together.

Stop and Go Golf Swing Drill

Let me demonstrate one for you. I am going to set up, I am going to swing everything back together, and then everything through together. A great drill for your forward-swing is to take a 6-iron out, tee the golf ball up, and it is called the Stop and Go Drill.

When you go to the top I want you to actually stop, just pause for a moment, and then just hit the golf ball. By doing this stop-and-go exercise you will get the feeling of your golf club, hands and arms, your upper body and your lower body all working together. By working on the 'one, two, three' swing I believe you can be more consistent and have more of a repeatable golf swing.
