There are no shortcuts in golf. Then again, there are no speed limits, either.
The quickest route to improvement often involves simple golf drills that will hasten your understanding of a swing concept, give you a feel for the correct technique, or banish poor fundamentals in just a few practice sessions.
Our ever-expanding menu of golf drills, listed at left, includes video and text lessons covering a range of topics. While there are thousands of golf-specific training aids on the market, the drills here typically require nothing more than a simple prop – a clubhead cover or credit card, for instance – to set up and execute. (Golf-Info-Guide.com features an entire section devoted to Swing Stick Tips & Drills, too.)
You’ll find golf drills to help add power and accuracy to your drives, increase your consistency with the irons, and cure common problems like slicing, hooking, shanking and poor contact. We cover the short game in-depth with drills for crisper chip shots and better distance control on the greens.
Need to shorten your backswing or tighten your swing plane? We’ve got entire series of drills devoted to those topics. Want a smoother putting stroke? You’ll find great drills right here. We’ll also teach you to handle situations that pop up on the golf course, such as hitting from uphill, downhill and sidehill lies.
When reading or watching these golf drill tips, you may be hesitant to try them on the driving range for fear of looking silly or out of place. Next time you get a chance, flip on the Golf Channel’s coverage of tour pros’ pre-tournament practice sessions. You’ll see the world’s best golfers using all manner of training devices and oddball methods. If they’re not embarrassed, you shouldn’t be, either.
Whether you want to work on your driving, hybrid shots, iron play, short game, putting, or all of the above, these golf drills will put you on the road to improvement.
Next stop: a better golf game.
