Our Best Drill! Swing With Your Feet Together

Our Best Drill! Swing With Your Feet Together


Issue: October 2004
Instructor: Eric Alpenfels

The Tip

After taking your normal
address position, set your feet
together and make swings
without losing your balance.

Why It Works

This drill boosts distance
by improving the quality of
impact. It also helps you avoid
an out-to-in swing path, since
it’s hard to swing out-to-in from
this position without falling
over. We tested this drill with
117 golfers, and it gave test
subjects an average of 13 yards
extra carry — with a 6-iron!

The Top 100 Says

“If you need a drill to make your
practice time real learning time,
use this one. Swinging with
your feet together allows
you to feel how important knee
and foot action are to your
swing, and to get a sense of the
proper hinging and unhinging
action of your wrists. A solid
swing is all about rhythm and
flow and using momentum —
not an all-out arms-and-hand
swing — to generate effortless
speed.” — Ted Sheftic
