Step Through Golf Drill, Is The Useful For Me (Video)

I see golfers using the walk through drill; is this useful for me? Now the walk through drill if you have seen it before is when a player hits a shot, and then they carry on their momentum and their weight shift through the ball, and actually take a step or two forwards towards the target. Now it’s only going to be useful for you if you are specifically struggling with your weight transfer. So if you’re a player who swings and then as they come through impact have a problem with moving their weight back onto the right foot back onto the trail foot and actually try and flick the ball up into the air with the hands then the walk through drill will be okay for you.

If you’re a player who actually turns through quite naturally and transfers the weight towards the target then turns and then finishes in a nice full position here with the eyes, the chest, the belt buckle facing the target in a nice balance position on that right toe with the weight forward then using the walk through drill probably won't be quite useful for you because you may not actually need to do it; but if you are a player who struggles hanging back through the ball so putting the weight on that, on the trail foot on the back foot through impact then by all means use the walk through drill. Now the best way to actually do it is to get set up as normal, have a normal back swing but as you come into the ball really shift your weight onto your front foot and then take at least a step through after impact. So a normal back swing move the weight forward and through and take a real step after the ball. And the reason you want to practice that is because it gets you moving and then after time, after you get used to it you can turn it down and eventually you will be in this position onto the left foot way forward and balanced on the back toe. So if you are struggling with hanging back through the ball by all means use the walk through drill but if you’re already up with a nice full finish position you probably won't need to.
