Balance Drill

By Margaret Platt-Klaus

Balance Drill

Hi, I am Margaret Platt-Klaus and I work at the Jim McLean Golf School in sunny Miami, Florida. What I am going to talk to you about right now is something for beginners. Put tees in the ground lined up where you would position the ball and then each successive one further away from your body. Then stand up to the tees with your feet together. This drill is going to allow you to maintain your balance a little better and make you feel like you are swinging your arms and hands a little more in balance. Keep your feet together, make a full swing and hit the tees, while maintaining your balance. If you do this enough, you will be a very balanced player and better player later on. Good luck.

Factors for Ball Position The position of the ball in your stance is determined by your swing shape and the club you are hitting. Your wedge should be near the center of your stance and your driver should be off your front heel.
Three Bottoms Of The Swing Learn to take a divot in front of the ball by finding the three bottoms of your swing, fat shots are caused by using too much back arm and results in a swing bottom behind the ball
Cure For Push Shots: Ball Position Playing the ball too far back in your stance causes you to make contact while the club is still swinging to the right of the target
