As a golfer, hitting the ball is common on the course, even with the most professional athletes. However, by fine-tuning your golf swing, you can begin to drive the ball down the fairway with powerful, consistent strokes. With IMG Academy’s How to Become a Better Golfer videos, our coaches focus on techniques for perfecting your golf swing and overall golf game.
In this video, get a breakdown of three golf drills to stop hooking the golf ball. Watch how the student-athlete performs each exercise with a different and specific body positioning during each golf swing. Each drill is broken down to provide an overview of three specific golf drills that provide instant feedback on how you hit the ball:
- Swing circle drill
- Noodle station
- Ball underfoot
In the Swing Circle Drill, the focus is on the correct position of the arms and club during the golf swing using a Swing Circle device commonly found on the driving range. Another great exercise to practice on the driving range is the Noodle Station Drill, which demonstrates the importance of a clean hit on the backswing and exit. The Ball Under the Feet exercise is performed on the downhill slope and helps encourage proper alignment of the arms and clubs during the backswing to avoid a hook.
