Practicing Golf Swing Path On The Range Not The Course (Video)
Practicing Golf Swing Path On The Range Not The Course (Video)

One key question many people will be asking is how you can practice your golf swing path? Now the best place to do that is on the driving range. When you are on the driving range, you have control of the situations that you place yourself in. On the course you need to be a lot more reactive to target, so it is here where you can do most of your practice.

And that is a very, very simple drill which you can use. I've got an alignment stick here, and I'm just going to place it on the outside of my golf ball. Now, it's pretty tight, so it's not leaving a massive amount of room for my club to actually extend beyond that point. The whole point of this is, is to try and correct the path which may be coming slightly too much from out to in. Now you can do the opposite of this. You can angle this alignment stick however you want, you can place it a little bit more in this direction to encourage an out to in path, you can place it a little bit more in this direction to encourage an in to out path. But I'm going to be working here on getting my path traveling quite straight through the bull. So I just got an alignment stick on the outside, I'm going to be getting set up to this, and all I'm going to be doing is focusing on taking my club path back and bringing it through very, very straight. I don't want it getting over this direction and traveling out to wings, so I'm going to hit the alignment stick and I don't want it traveling so much in to out. Again, I am going to be hissing the alignment stick. If you can use something like this, what it allows you to do, it allows the brain to tell your body to avoid an object. Your brain generally will try and avoid objects if you make it. So if you stick something on the outside of the ball like this, it will help you stop moving too much in to out or too much from out to in. Very simple drill to use. So it's getting set up. Now a little rehearsal of trying to move that club nice and straight through the back of the ball, and then having a nice swing, and just trying to get that path moving nice and straight through the points of impact. And it works!
