Lesson Tee: Jeff Coston

The ‘Wall Drill’ will help your ball striking

I love the spring, summer and fall! Winter not so much. I love teaching golf and playing tournaments! I encourage all to set some golf goals and practical ways to achieve them.

I like to play a couple tournaments during the warmer months.

See Photo1. “Wall Drill.” This drill and image is so effective! Please “Just Do It!” Your ball striking will improve. Turn hips and pivot without swaying and touch the wall slightly above shoulder high. This drill creates depth on the backswing to encourage a proper/shallow/on plane/not steep angle of approach to the golf ball. So key! Imagine “The Wall” as you play and practice.

Photo 2. Another effective way to promote depth on backswing and proper shallowing on downswing is an anti-lift pole. Big time proper practice and image on course. Ben Hogan imagined a plane of glass on his shoulders, swinging under it without breaking the glass!
And then check the results. Photo 1 and 2 produce Photo 3.
