Video Golf Tip | Baseball Drill For Women
By Katherine Marren

A great drill for beginners, women and juniors is to do a baseball swing to get a feel for how the hands, wrists and arms work in the golf swing and for a better body pivot. I am going to hold the club up at waist height and I am going to do some circle swings around me that demonstrate a baseball like swing. One of the important things I am going to do is make sure the face of the club rotates to the sky on the backswing and I am going to rotate the face of the club over during the swing so that the face of the club points towards the ground on the through swing. That is the proper hand, wrist and arm in the golf swing that people do not fell very often when they tend to scoop, hold on or have a little chicken wing. That is a great way to learn the proper arm action and the other thing that it does as you swing the club around is it helps shift your weight to your back foot and as you swing the club through your weight shifts to your front foot. Many people can not get to that full finish so by doing this drill they really feel getting to their left side and that perfect K finish at the end of the swing. Let me demonstrate more of a baseball swing because people sometimes do not believe that a baseball swing is similar to a golf swing. I am set up here for a golf shot and I am going to show you that a baseball swing works pretty good to hit a golf ball straight and far. Then you just bring it down to the ground. Doing some baseball swings to loosen up before you play, to get a feel for your hands and wrists and a better body pivot is a great way to improve your swing.

Golf Grip Checkpoints A good grip will help your wrists activate in the golf swing correctly and will add power, distance and accuracy to your swing.
Waggle Like Ben Hogan A waggle is a great preparatory motion to get your wrists, elbows and fingers loose and ready to swing
How Back Leg Works In Swing The roll of the right leg in the swing is very misunderstood in golf, it is extremely important for control and distance, as the club comes into impact the right knee, foot and ankle roll in and at the finish the right thigh should catch up with your left thigh
