How can you consistently make golf swings that will get you low scores? Simple—Do your golf drills diligently.
Below are just some of golf drills that can help correct and improve key elements in your golf swing.
1. Golf Drill for Better Rhythm in Your Swing
Place around 6 or more golf tees on the ground that are at least 5 inches away from each other. Walk and swing your club to skim the top of each tee one after another. This drill will help improve your control of the golf club and the rhythm of your swing.
2. Drill for Better Golf Swing Balance
First check whether your body is balanced properly when you execute a swing. Check by placing small coins on top of your shoes before doing golf swings. If you are unable to keep the coins on top of your shoes then it means you do not have the right balance to make your swing more accurate and powerful.
Another way to check if your body is balanced correctly during the golf swing is to ask a golf buddy to push you on your back when you are in a middle of doing a backswing or downswing. If the push can make you off-balance then you need adjust your stance, or body position for better balance.
3. Golf Drill for Strengthening Golf Swing Muscles
This golf drill is also for building ‘fluid golf swing’ muscle memory. Practice your swing with golf clubs that have been weighted down to build-up your muscles and help you produce more power in your swing. You can also practice by simply swinging 2 or more golf clubs at one time.
4. Golf Drills to Improve Backswing
This drill will also help build muscle memory for ‘bigger arm rotation’ and for keeping the ‘trailing arm close to the body’ during the backswing.
Without your golf club, keep your hands together and make a backswing without letting your hands separate. By keeping your hands together, you need to increase the rotation of your arm to do a back swing. The stretch you feel in this position is how your back swing should feel.
Another drill to improve your shot accuracy and control is to take a golf cover and slip it inside the armpit of your trailing arm (right arm for right-handed players). Do a swing without letting the golf cover fall off. This drill will train your body to keep the trailing arm close during a swing.
5. Golf Drill to Keep Leading Arm and Wrists Straight
Starting from address position, place a ball behind the head of your club. And as you move your body to do a backswing, let the head of the golf club push the ball until it rolls at the rear of your right or trailing foot.
So try these drills to train your body to be in the correct position when performing the swing. With consistent golf drills you will see your golf scores get lower and lower.
