One of the most important elements to a solid golf swing is sequencing. We can spend days discussing the proper mechanics of sequencing, but here we will look into a very simple drill to help your body feel the motion. This drill is very simple and can be performed by players of all levels and abilities. The practice of this motion will prove beneficial for total beginners all the way to the professionals and the best part of it all is that you do not need a golf club for this. This is the Full Step Sequencing Drill.
Here are the 3 main benefits:
- Establishing Proper Sequencing. By practicing this simple drill without a golf club, you will have more focus on the movements of your body. You will be able to feel all of your muscles being activated at the right moment, establishing awareness of the order in which each part needs to activate.
- Understanding Proper Weight Transfer. By starting with your feet together and getting them to play an active role in the motion, you will be forced to transfer weight back and forth, feeling the load and unload in the swing. This will help your body develop a feel for what a proper weight transfer should be.
- Increased Clubhead Speed. By building up body awareness and a feel for sequencing and weight transfer, the club will be able to fall into its rightful place with minimal compensations during the swing. This means the golf club will be taking the most efficient path from setup to finish – moving from point A to point B much faster.
The Full Step Sequencing Drill is something that can be done on or off the golf course. Do this drill 50 times daily and you will see significant improvement. For further details on how to develop your golf game, consult with a UGP Professional today!
