Video Golf Tip | Rhythm Drill
By Ed Ibarguen

If I had one dollar for every student that comes to me and says I know I am too fast, I know I am too quick. I try to tell myself to slow down but I just can not do it. I have a rhythm drill that is going to help you get in sync and it is really very simple. I call it the one, two, three rhythm drill. One is ready. I think that count of one is really important to let your mind know we are ready to go, we are ready to do it. One is ready. Two is back. So watch, one, two. Notice that when I did that I did not do it staccato, staccato means choppy. I did not go oneàtwoàthree. We don't want that, that is was to stiff. Think Lawrence Well, a one and a two and a three. Watch, we are here, we are going to go one, two, three and three comes right down through impact, watch it in action, here we go, with a driver. Simple count. Count it out loud, ready, one, two, three. Straight as a string, never a problem. The simple rhythm count, one, two, three. You know what if you are a little bit quicker you can count a little quicker but keep it even, keep it balanced, it will work out for you. The rhythm drill.

Putting Grip The putting grip should be in the lifeline of the hands, not the fingers, so that you eliminate your wrists and hands from the stroke and allow your putting power to come from your shoulders
Steering/Guiding the Ball Practice swinging through to your finish position and holding for five seconds to achieve straighter and longer shots
String Aid: Alignment Using a piece of string with tees attached to both ends is the best set up and alignment tool you can have, put it in the ground to represent your target line then use it to square your clubface, align your body to the target line and maintain a constant ball position
