Here is a great way to practice a proper weight shift without spending a lot of money. Follow the simple instructions and pictures below for a very effective practice with a built in feedback system.
- Buy two kitchen sponges
- Wet the sponges
- Set them up by the golf ball where your feet will be
- Make swings with the sponges beneath your feet
The goal of this drill is to squeeze the water out of the sponges at the appropriate time in the swing. Notice the difference in the proper weight shift and a reverse weight in the pictures below and how the sponges look. This will help you to sense how you are supposed to shift during the swing without swaying or reverse weight shifting.
