Toe Golf Shot Drill 3: Two balls hit outer ball only (Video)

Here’s a great exercise for you to strike the golf ball in the middle of the golf club and actually involves hitting golf balls nicely as well. I'm going to set up here and just show you what I've got. I've got two golf balls here quite close together. I'm going to set up the inside golf ball but I'm actually going to hit the outside golf ball. I've made sure there is enough space for me to get to the outside ball there without hitting off the toe or the heel. If I have the two balls too close together, I'll probably catch both balls whichever way I want to swing at them.

So I push my second ball a little bit further away and I'm going to exaggerate my swing and push out to hit this one because your fault currently for toeing the ball is pulling in hitting too much on the inside ball. So if I turn to face down the driving range now. I've got the similar two balls set up with the similar spacing. I set up to the inside ball and my normal address position and normally you have to come and see that you're pulling in too much if you're hitting the toe. I’d like you to stretch out and hit the outside ball and get a good strike on the outside ball not the inside golf ball. It takes a bit of confidence to really go ahead and hit this one nice and committed but set up to the inside ball and make it really exaggerate to push up and hit the outside ball. Nice and clean. Proper strike coming at one and I've left the inside ball where it was. And if I can check on my club face to see where I struck it from. You should see that that one is hit nicely in the center. You don't really want to hit that because it just reinforces that same feeling of the bad strike.

So you set up to the inside ball and you swing and you hit on the outside line. Clip that ball away nicely. Start off doing it with a fairly short aim, just something like a wedge, nothing too exaggerated. Feel how you can stretch out and you lose that tension and that pulled in feeling which has been giving you the toe shots all along.
