  • Indoor Practice Drills, Exercises
  • Performance Strategies, Mental Game
  • Full Swing Development, Improvements
  • Practice Planning & Feedback

Welcome to my practice plan. I document EXACTLY what I do to improve my game before my second PGA Tour start at the 2018 Houston Open. My hope is for you to hold me accountable, and to re-educate golfers on how to train properly.

FEATURED INDOOR PRACTICE

INDOOR GOLF EXERCISES the truth about how to make swing improvements that last.

The video above shows each exercise briefly. Note I am not a fitness professional, attempt at your own risk. I advise you go slowly, each exercise is focused on building specific core elements in your golf swing.

FEATURED EXERCISES IN THIS TRAINING

MY GOAL complete entire training without passing out. Perform each exercise slowly, with caution until I am comfortable to do the exercises correctly. If I get tired I may create more problems in my swing and/or injure myself if I compromise my form and technique.

Please watch the video for all of the drills/exercises for todays training.

SABER TURNS

One of the most important aspects to improving your swing is learning how to turn properly in the back and down swing. You will hit longer, straighter shots, in addition to keeping your back healthy!

SABER STICK (use code golfgpg to save $10)

DETAILS... +
  • Set up square to target line with body, use golf ball for 7-iron ball position
  • Turn centered, marbles drop (if using saber) to other end when completing backswing turn to ensure turning on swing plane
  • Make sure end of stick is pointed at golf ball
  • Use core, lower body to turn down and point other end of stick at golf ball
  • That completes 1 repetition, Repeat 10 times

BALANCE SQUATS

Great exercise to increase balance in your full swing. Exercise can be completed without Bosu Ball until you gain the strength, balance and flexibility to use the ball.

DETAILS... +
  • Set up square, shoulder width apart
  • Squat down with good posture, back flat
  • Try to go as low as you can without arching back
  • Add 1/2 moon, bosu ball - flip upside down, stand on top and try to squat without ball wobble
  • That completes 1 repetition, Repeat 15 times

SPEED STICKS

It doesn't matter how good your swing positions are if you don't have tempo and timing to impact the ball correctly.

See Practice

DETAILS... +
  • Make sure to set up correctly, as if hitting a 7-iron
  • With a speed stick (or alignment stick) make 10 swings forward
  • 10 swings opposite way
  • 10 swings while on your knees
  • 30 total swings, completes 1 set

FEEDBACK

Awareness and gathering feedback is key to improvement. Answer the questions found below to help yourself understand your game and strategies your practice each day.

FEEDBACK AFTER TRAINING COMPLETED

  • 1

    What Went Well?

    I completed a workout and got some putting and wedge work in!

  • 2

    What needs improvement?

    I am really out of shape and need to stretch more before doing the workout. After a few exercises I started to feel the bone spur issue in my lower back. I did the wedge distance control on trackman after the workout. I scored fairly low because I was effected by the work out. I need to be in better shape so I can hit 15 wedge shots well after a elementary workout. When under pressure I experience exhaustion (mostly from mental fatigue), if I strengthen my body, I will strengthen my mind!
