Skill Drills with Meredith Kirk:The Toe Drill

Today, I’m going to show you a drill on how to transfer your weight properly in a golf swing, and we’re going to call it The Toe Drill. Now, this drill is great for those of you that may struggle to get all of your weight onto your lead foot, so if you have a tendency during your follow-through to have a reverse pivot … You swing through the shot here and kind of fall back, or you lose your balance … this is going to be a great drill for you. So, what you do is you want to go ahead and get in the address position. Take your right foot, the toe, and place it behind the foot like this. Now, what I’m going to do is I’m going to turn to the side so you can see it this way. So, if I’m setup here, I’m going to get the right toe, put it behind just like this, and when I’m right here, I’m going to take a couple practice swings. Now, you’re really going to feel the weight move to the lead foot. This is awesome. You want to try to do this about five to 10 times, and once you do this, then you set up to the ball in your regular stance. Now, we’ve built a little muscle memory making that motion five to 10 times. So, go ahead and get set up. Make a swing at it. See? I got all my weight on my lead foot. If I wanted to right now, I could actually tap my trail foot because I got everything moving forward. So, if you struggle with proper weight transfer, I really want you to try this drill, The Toe Drill.
