TIPS TO PRACTICE YOUR FAVORITE SPORT AT HOME

Golf Swings drills to improve the aligment

Swing drills are a great way to improve the position or movement in your golf swing. You can use a mirror and slowly move the club into the required position. Check your position in the mirror and correct as it comes necessary.

Swing drills for perfect impacts
Make a practice swing with a 7-iron and stop at impact. Take a look at where your club face is pointing and pay atention to the relationship between your lead arm and club shaft. Many golfers rehearse an impact position that replicates their bad shot (open/closed club face, poor angles between lead arm and club shaft – causing fats and thins). 

Begin in a set-up position, then without making a backswing just press forward against the towel or the wall. You’ll find that as you try to generate more force, your body will want to move into this tour pro position you see below – body rotating through, hands ahead of the club head, square club face. If you want to add a little more resistance lay a weight or your golf bag on to of the towel and move through impact into a follow through.

Be a master at your fundamentals
If you keep your golf grip, golf posture and alignment tidy you will rarely fall into bad swing habits.

Putting drills at home
For optimal putting practice at home should try this:

Check your putting grip and posture in a mirror to ensure all is in order. Lay down a golf club or putting aid and hit 10 – 20 putts.

The idea of putting aids (or a golf club) is to give feedback on your putting swing path and club face. If you miss putts left or right it will most likely be down to one of these two factors.

The last task is to pick a target slightly smaller than a golf hole. See how many times in a row you can hit your target from 6, 8 or 10 feet – keep a note of your personal best.

Chipping inside your home
A small carpeted room can provide some great chipping practice. 

Chipping for accuracy
Take your bottle or Puttout trainer from the putting task and place it 10 – 15 feet away against a wall. Take 10 balls, and see how many chips you can get to hit your target.

Chipping drill for distance 
Take 5 golf balls and set up 15 feet away from the wall. Chip one ball towards the wall, aiming for your shot to finish half the distance (7 1/2 feet). Your next chip shot needs to get past the first ball, but stay short of the wall. Your next shot must get past your second chip shot, but stay short of the wall…this drill sounds so simple, but just try completing it with 5 golf balls.

Golf psychology

Spending 5 – 10 minutes visualising yourself hitting great golf shots, chips and putts over and over again is of benefit, even it it offers just a small gain in performance and confidence.
