Better Golf: Lockdown Edition

This week I am going to give you a drill that you can do at home during the lockdown period. The drill is to improve your swingpath, a very important aspect of the golf swing.

Before I give you the drill, I first of all have to explain what the correct swingpath is: The correct swingpath (clubhead path) in the impact area is from inside to inside. This means that the clubhead swings into the ball from slightly inside the intended line, briefly on a straight line through the ball, then moves back inside the line on the follow through. This path will give you the best chance to square your clubface at impact and send the ball down the straight line.

In picture 2 you can see the correct and incorrect swingpaths (either too much from the outside or too much from the inside).

The drill:

1. Place 2 clubs down on the ground and align them to your target. One at your toes and one outside the clubhead.

2. Make 2 rows of tees. The outside row in a straight line and the inside row on a slight halfmoon curve.

3. Your clubhead should just fit in between the 2 rows of tees. Put another tee where the ball should be.

4. Aim your feet and clubhead towards the target.

5. Try and swing the club through the 2 rows of tees and try to hit the tee in the middle. You should only touch the tee in the middle.

6. If you have a net at home, you can do this drill with a golf ball.  Hitting into a net will make you concentrate more on your swingpath and stop you from worrying about the result of your shot.

Just an example of how not to do it at home!

 
Final thought: When you get out on the golf course again … keep an eye on your divots.  They will tell you whether your swingpath is correct or not.

Contact Ben if you would like more tips or drills on how you can improve your golf during the lockdown period.

 

Blowing away another myth.

It’s quicker than you think.

Thinking about your golf game, where would an improvement make the most difference? Not just to your scorecard or your handicap, but to how much you enjoy the game. If you are struggling with enjoyment, then there’s a good chance it’s one of these skills:
Too many shots in the rough, lost in the woods, or far too short. Hole spoiled before you start.
Can’t get the ball up on good trajectory. Too inconsistent. It’s a struggle tee to green.
Too many golfers sit in one or both these categories. They’re under 100 sometimes but often struggle with that target. If that’s you I’m betting you love your friends, and the outdoors, but the game itself is frustrating. So let’s blow a myth away.
It might take 10,000 hours to be an elite level golfer, but what if it took less than 20 hours of practice to MASTER one skill?
I’m interested, tell me more
The key to mastering a skill is not bashing away endlessly with minimal or no improvement. The right improvement identified and explained. Simple steps. The right deliberate practice drills. The right feedback. Pick a skill. Start a conversation with us. Now’s a good time.

Keep moving.

Strengthen your foundation

Being home doesn’t mean you can’t work on your golf game. Your physical conditioning is just as important as technique and course management. Improving your mobility from home means that when you’re back on the course, you can hit the ground running.
A good golf swing starts at your ankles. Being able to stay in position while transferring weight from your back foot to your front foot during the downswing requires ankle mobility. Lacking ankle mobility leads to early extension and inconsistent ball striking.
This exercise will help you improve your ankle mobility. And all you’ll need to do it is a few square feet of space.

Paarl Golf Club remains open for social play,

dependant on the new State of Disaster rules

Please note that we anticipate a further statement on the National State of Disaster by the President. Should the rules become stricter, we as Paarl Golf Club will have to adhere to these rules. Therefore, our weekly programme may change depending on the outcome of the further restrictions that might become in place today.

We thank all golfers who helped us during the first phase of the State of Disaster in playing according to the new rules.

However, we need to warn all golfers and Boschenmeer residents that playing golf or practising on the golf course after closing time of the course will not be allowed. According to our cancellation policy, we will be able to “fine” the culprits with payment of green fees for non-affiliated members due to the fact that they would not have registered the round and allowed access to the course through the official starter.
