Video Golf Tip | Shots That Go Right

Here is a tip for those people that hit a lot of shots over to the right. There is a think in golf known as connectivity. When students come to see me I usually see a swing like this, the upper body is leading to the finish but the lower body is lagging behind. In this case they are what I call disconnected. Everything has to be connected in the golf swing, the lower body and the upper body together. People who play baseball understand this. If you want to go to right field and hit a ball to right field how do you do it? You take the bat, you slow up your hips, you slow up the bat and low and behold the ball goes to right field. The same thing is going to happen to the golf swing if you do not shut that clubface down. Here is a little drill that will help you out in doing this. I call it the split handed drill. You take the right hand and you split it on the club so that it is not touching the grip. Go to the top of your backswing and as you are coming through the hitting area what you do is you drop the right hand off the club. When you do that the weight of the golf club actually pulls you around and brings your lower body through together with your upper body. So if you are having a problem with not being connected with your golf swing. If you see a lot of shots that are going to the right use that split handed drill and I think you will see a significant improvement.
