Thanks for watching Mel’s 2 Minute Miracles – Weight Shift.

There are many golfers who struggle with shifting the weight correctly from the back foot at the top of the backswing to the front foot on the follow-through.

Here are two simple drills that will help.

  1. Swing a club without balls and make a conscious effort to finish the swing like you see the pros do on TV every weekend.  Hold that pose for a few seconds and then do it again. Each day swing the club for about five to ten minutes.  As you get more comfortable with this finish, start swinging a little harder until you are singing at the same speed as your golf course swing, holding that perfect finish every time.
  2. Take a golf ball in your rear hand.  Put your lead arm behind your back and toss the ball underhand as far as you can.  Because we rew up as kids throwing a ball, this will be a nice fluid motion with your rear arm now extended towards the taret.
