Video Golf Tip | Drag Drill for Crisp Impact

Hi, my name is Mariano Bartolome, and I am a Master Instructor at the Jim McLean Golf School at the Doral Resort and Spa. Today I am going to give you a drill that will help you to improve your game. This simple drill consists of dragging the club through the impact area. This will help you to get better connection and a better impact position. The drill consists of trying to put the club right in front of your right toe. From that position the only thing that we need to do is turn the hips through, keeping the club against the ground and dragging it through to that three-quarters or halfway through position. What this is doing is really helping us to keep connections between the hands, arms and body. As you can see at that checkpoint position, the toe of the club is pointing at the sky, my left arm is underneath my right arm, the shaft is pointing to my chest and my body is forward with the weight on the left foot. Try this drill; it is going to help you to improve on your impact area.

Better Delivery Position for a More Powerful Swing The delivery position of the swing is when the club shaft is parallel to the ground, at which point the right elbow and knee should have kicked in towards the center of your stance
Analyze Your Impact The only way to have a proper impact position is if the back of your left hand is square to the target at impact
Backswing: Arm Movement In the backswing the arms do not move back but rather hinge upwards
