01-05: THE DRILL

New Zealand Golf Magazine - - PGA OF NZ -

This drill re­quires dif­fer­ent stages. Un­der­stand what your try­ing to achieve. A shal­low strike.

Un­der­stand that you don't have to hit a ball to start with, it's more about a feel­ing that you start with

The key to this drill is to keep your up­per trail arm con­nected to your rib cage.

Place your lead arm and across your trail arm. As shown in pic­ture one.

Swing the club as you would a chip shot. This on­earmed swing starts to give you this shal­low skim­ming like ac­tion that cre­ates the shot I am talk­ing about.

Your wrist strength will be tested and your con­trol but this is great prac­tice and you will find that con­tin­u­a­tion of this drill over prac­tice swing and ses­sions will make a dif­fer­ence.

As you ad­vance in skill you can start to hit some shots.

I use this drill a lot and think it's a great part of your chip­ping prac­tice!
