Tips from top golf instructors on your golf swing. Some may surprise

This is a rather complicated dril, but for those with sequencing
issues, it will help getting your swing in proper sequence from
the bottom up:
- With a 6-iron and the ball teed up slightly, take your normal
- Move your left foot toward your right foot so they are almost
touching and the club is 8 to 10 inches behind the ball.
- Take a swing, stepping toward the target before you reach the
top of your backswing.
This weight shift will initiate the downswing, creating the proper
lagging motion. The body leading the arms, that delivers the club
powerfully and on plane.
Start Out Swinging Slow
Ben Hogan once said that 20 balls hit slowly teaches you more than
100 balls at full speed.
Aim to produce shots of 25 to 40 yards. This forces you to be balanced
throughout the swing and allows you to think and feel your way through
the swing positions.
Drills For Extending Your Swing, And Your Drive
Power shots result from maximum swing speed resulting from full
release of the club and a wide follow-through arc. The left wrist
remains flat and the left arm straight well past impact.
This drill helps you create this sense of extension.
As your clubhead approaches the ball, let your right hand slip
off the grip.
This forces your left arm to fully extend to the target and your
left wrist will stay flat, as long as your body keeps rotating.
Imagine a goal post 6 feet down the target line from the ball.
You are aiming to get your clubhead through the posts as it travels
up the arc.
Keep You Eyes Down
The tendency to want to immediately see where your ball is going
zaps your drive and your accuracy. By keeping your eyes on the ball
zone well after you have hit the ball forces your follow-through
path to stay down and extend forward, giving more accurate drives.
