turn, shift, rotate
▶ This drill puts all the elements you’ve learned so far into one fluid motion. Stick an alignment rod 8-10cm off your right hip and another the same distance off your left hip. Wind up like in Drill No. 1 without swaying into the rod next to your right hip. Then start down by letting your left hip bump the rod that’s next to it. Your spine angle should shift as it does in Drill No. 2. Sense your weight moving into the left heel as you do this (near,
left). If you feel it in your toes, you’re out of position. Finally, after the bump, rotate your hips towards the target and let the club swing along the ground as in Drill No. 3. You can work on this in three parts, but the goal is to blend it: (1) Turn and post up on your right side; (2) shift your lower body towards the target; (3) rotate your hips and finish the swing. This will really help you get the ball sailing. Greens in reg will become routine.
