KEEP IT SIMPLE
Generally we play our best when we keep things nice and simple. Simplicity of movement is only possible when you have a clear understanding or ‘picture’ of what you are trying to do.
James Loughnane gives a simple but effective drill to improve your ball striking.
On a daily basis I see golfers trying to correct their downswings with a quick fix or gimmick. I have golfers telling me that they want to roll their wrists or swing from in to out. Whilst there may be some truth in what they say, more often than not these are just last ditch efforts to save the shot. Hank Haney once said, “if you want a good downswing – then make sure you have a good backswing.” I tend to agree with Hank! A good golf swing is a chain reaction – one good move leads to another. If you want to really improve your ball striking then try this drill.
This is a fantastic drill to do at home. Try doing this drill for just five minutes a day. It will make a huge difference to your ball striking!
