Golf Swing Swaying Check Drill
This drill is designed to help people who have excess motion or lateral weight shift in their golf swing. The goal is to have your weight shift slightly from the inside of your right leg to the inside of your left leg, but never shifting so much where you are losing balance for your weight is reaching the outside of either leg.
This drill also helps you feel more rotation in your body, as opposed to rocking side to side. First, establish a fixed point where you would like to hit balls from, perhaps on a tee. I always recommend setting up your alignment aids for further guidance. Take your normal stance with whichever club you decide to use.
Push a shaft or dowel into the ground diagonally marking the outside of your right foot and your left foot. The dowel should be approximately knee or thigh high as it crosses the outside of your leg. Make sure that they are not in your way as you make your golf swing as we don’t want you to get hurt. These dowels will make you aware of the space in which your swing should take place. It’s okay if your legs lightly brush against the dowels, but pushing them excessively means that you are shifting too far.
