Practice Drills

These practice drills have been developed and perfected by qualified PGA professionals with over 60 years of combined teaching experience. The key to these drills is that they are simple to perform and effectively correct swing faults through repetition and instinct, rather than conscious thought.

Using the correct drill will improve your game but be aware that practice drills are not "one size fits all". Performing a drill that is not prescibed to you by a PGA professional can have a detrimental effect on your game.

Drill - Ball under right foot
  1. Take you standard address position
  2. Place a golf ball under the outside of your right foot
  3. Hit balls keeping your weight on the inside of your right foot on the backswing
  4. Ensure that your right foot does not roll on the golf ball
This drill will prevent your right knee from swaying away from the target on the backswing thus keeping your weight on the inside of your right foot. This will give you a stable base and keep your head centered on the backswing. It will also allow you to shift your weight forward more easily on the downswing.
