A great drill to learn how to push off of the ground

October 16, 2019- by Steven E. Greer, MD

I recently wrote about my improved club speed caused by better form. However, I am still not dipping down in the transition and then pushing off of the ground like the greatest golfers do. My legs are stiff.

So, I created this drill. I pause at the top, then flex the knees into the transition. I then visualize pushing with the right leg as I roll the left shoulder up and away.

Give it a try. You will start out feeling robotic. But after 20-balls, your rhythm will be more fluid.

It is important to get the legs and feet pushing off the ground. It not only creates speed, but it is the only way to get a synchronous full turn of the shoulders and hips.
