Southbroom Golf Club’s resident PGA pro Derek James is back with another training tip.
“The drill this week is about understanding and practising your natural side. So right side for a right-handed golfer and left for left-handed,” says James.
“Just as Ben Hogan demonstrates throwing in his book:
“Hit balls with your throwing arm only. It is such a natural movement with more speed and easy power. You will notice how your hips and legs move at the same time.
“When you first do this drill, tee the ball up, put your left hand on your chest, making sure your chest turns and hit quietly with your right.
“This action really gives you the feeling of what your right should be doing. I would advise doing this with chipping and putting as well.”
