Squish the head­cover

swing rhythm

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Hit­ting balls bare­foot is noth­ing new. Sam Snead did it in the 1950s. You can do it, too, and get some of that ter­rific tempo and tim­ing Snead was fa­mous for.

Put a head­cover on the ground and cover it with the mid­dle of your front foot. Make your back­swing, and when your hands get to chest high, make sure you’re squish­ing the head­cover (left). Your hands and arms will re­spond by fol­low­ing your body into the down­swing.

Push­ing into the ground at half­way back will help you add speed later in the swing.
