Everybody wants to hit the ball far and straight. Here is a drill that can add few extra yards on your shots if you patiently try it for few weeks. This drill is designed to get you in a great back swing position for consistent ball striking.
1. Set up for the drill by putting your right hand on your hip (left hand for left-handers). Stand close enough to the wall so that your elbow touches it. This will give you the right amount of space you need to do the drill. Take your golf stance. Leave your palms pressed against each other.
2. Make your back swing and place your palms on the wall. Keep your hands even with each other on the wall. In this position, you can see how your chest turns and faces the wall. With your chest turned, you are creating easy power because your chest has to unwind to make downswing. This will increase your club head speed. Also, you will make a better weight transfer during your back swing. You only want to shift your weight from waist up. You will get a great feel for this by working with this drill.
3. Now from this position hold your upper body and drive your legs for rotation. This will help you to come square with your club face at impact position. Make sure your chin touches the right shoulder at the finish.
4. Producing a good golf swing relies on how well you rotate your shoulder and hips. Therefore, you must do the above drills to get proper turn. Practice this drill 10 to 15 minutes in a day for better
