One of the biggest challenges for the amateur golfer, particularly the beginner or high handicapper, is to hit the ball first before allowing the club to strike the ground.  Piers Ward of Meandmygolf gives you an easy drill using two tees to give you a great visual of doing this.  In the US, we call it a tee.  In South Africa, we call it a peg.  I have no idea why in England they call it a tee peg?  Seems a little redundant to use both words, don’t you think?

PGA Golf Professionals Piers Ward shows you a great drill to help consistently strike down on your iron shots.

One of the most common moves that will ruin a golf swing is an insufficient shoulder turn!  This costs you power because you cannot create sufficient speed from this position.  It also affects the direction you deliver the clubhead to the ball on the downswing, causing offline shots.  Do the following drill to understand how to make a better turn.  You won’t be sorry.  Thanks to SirSwingsAlot for sharing!

We’re all looking for more distance, but you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars a month on new equipment to find it. These two drills will diagnose whether or not your shoulder turn on your backswing is full enough.

If the shoulder’s aren’t opened and coiled enough, a myriad of swing mistakes can take hold. However, if you do get the proper turn, you’ll be in the correct position to deliver the club to the ball and gain those yards you’ve been looking for on the equipment rack.

Understanding “Angle of Attack” is crucial to hitting good iron shots.  

Come in too steep and you will hit the ball too low, and come in too shallow, you will tend to hit behind the ball.  Using a few tees and two clubs, Matthew Connor clearly explains this important technique!

I have been telling my students for years to do their drills at a slow speed in the beginning because the slower you do your drills, the faster the body learns.  

Think about it.  When you were in Grade 1, and you were learning to write, the teacher made you do it slowly, over and over.  She did not expect you to write at the speed of an adult right away.  

The same thing applies to the golf swing.  If you are a beginner or high handicap, you cannot expect to hit the ball proficiently and at the speed of a Tour Pro right away.  Here is Jeff Ritter to explain how to learn to “gear up” as you become better at doing a certain drill.
