Half Swing For Better Contact


If you’re having problems with your ball striking then follow this simple drill, the half swing. And not with just your wedge, but a variety of clubs. It will help you focus on hitting the center of the club face instead of a specific mechanical swing thought.

    Am ready to start rebuilding my swing. The half swing drill sounds to me perfect for an old–literal and figurative–golfer like me!

    Can u send me a proper setup for a driver?

      Hey Thomas, a driver set up in what respect? Do you mean setup position, where the ball sits in the stance, where the hands/arms hang, etc?

    This drill works like nobody’s business!! Slows things down keeps things in order and really lets you feel pure contact, timining, tempo and balance. Surprising how far the ball will go just doing this half swing. I have been teaching bowling and adapted this same idea and approach and what do you know, almost instant success! Got rid of what I call “bowling crap” out of the approach and delivery and went to just the step and release Bam! Most gain 50 pins in just one hour of practice.

    went to the range twice with the half drill, two buckets, get 220 now with my driver and a draw instead of the slice. Best free advice ever, THANKS!

      Hey thanks, Daniel! I was surprised at how far the ball traveled as well. I guess hitting the sweet spot is pretty important 😉

    Thanks for the reinforcement of what I had found last year. I had shoulder joint replacement and as i recovered, I found the shoulder was not affected when I kept my arms close to my body and hit putts, progressed to chips, short pitches, 1/4 swings, 1/2 swings and then full swings. The shots felt so good, I wasn’t that concerned about how soon I could take a rip at the ball. My scores came back to the good scores of 7 years ago. Since then, I set a goal to shoot my age (72). I had a string of 73,75,74,73,76 and then, 2 weeks ago i shot a 68. The 1/2 swing drill is now a fantastic warm up for me!!!! Thanks for the reminder.

      That’s some great shooting Joe! Keep it up and keep us in the loop in how it progresses!
