This sim­ple drill is also known as the “Closed Stance” drill. How­ever strictly speak­ing it is not re­ally a “closed” stance as the club is aimed as for a nor­mal shot and the up­per body is still cor­rectly aligned par­al­lel the target line. Use­ful for play­ers who have a ten­dency to ‘spin out' ie pivot faster than their arm swing (com­mon with young tal­ented play­ers) this is a great drill to im­prove Co­or­di­na­tion and bal­ance.

THE BEN­E­FITS OF THIS DRILL ARE THAT IT WILL:

• Help to elim­i­nates overuse of your hips and your body ‘hang­ing back and tilt­ing un­der'. • Im­prove your foot­work

and bal­ance. I gave this drill to one of my regular stu­dents a year ago. He likes it so much he now plays all his rounds of golf this way and has re­duced his hand­i­cap from 19 to 8!
