Many people believe that simply getting out on the course and playing as often as they can is practicing their golf game. While playing often does help you improve, to really see improvement you need to perform golf swing drills that will target very specific areas of your game so you can improve them.

Just getting out on the course means you could just be “practicing” the same errors.  Golf swing drills can focus on the mechanics and fix those errors.

There are Golf swing drills to strengthen your core and come in handy when you need to improve your swing. One such golf drill is similar to push ups.

Get in a push-up position on the floor and hold your body straight with just your hands and feet on the floor. Then, lift your right hand and left leg up and balance for 10-15 seconds. Repeat this move with your left hand and right foot. This golf drill increases strength and also works on your balance.

One of the simplest putting drills is simply to practice putting when you have an opportunity. At home, you can putt a few shots during commercial breaks of your favorite show.

At work, putt a few while the computer boots up in the morning, or when you’re waiting for a report to run. Vary your shots so you’re not putting from the same distance each time. Adding a few practice putts in each day can go a long way in improving your putting skills.

No matter which golf swing drills you are working on, think about how your body is working while you practice the drill. Would you do better if you have more strength in your lower back?

Would increased flexibility help you perform better?

This is when you can combine fitness in your golf swing drills. If your drills help you identify areas where you can strengthen your body, by all means incorporate exercises into your fitness routine to combat those weaknesses.

Golf swing drills can hone in on particular problem areas and really help you focus on the steps to improve those areas. With a little extra effort, you’re on your way to a great game of golf.

    I think the best golf drills are the ones that you can do at home / work when you are away from the golf course. This enables your mind and body to get used to the feeling of the motion away from the golf course so it’s easier to become habit.
