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.

Chipping Club Selection Use a club that will allow you to land the ball in a consistent spot on the green and roll to the hole
Chipping: Arc in the Swing Use your right forearm to turn as you go through while the left arm is folding in. Make sure to maintain an arc in your swing as this short swing still requires a rounded swing path.
