Hit The Pool Noodle

This is a version of the "hit-my-arms" drill that I often use with students during lessons. It is great for players who have a strong "hit" impulse and those who tend to stall the body through impact. It is also a good compliment to working on club-face closure, ulnar deviation & "the unhinge", and maintaing good side-tilt through the finish position.

Overall, our main goal is to focus on swinging throug the ball while maintaing good body mechanics and arm extension. Our focus should be on hitting the pool noodle and allowing for the ball to simply get in the way. As always, do not be afraid to start slow, especially if you have a strong tendency to hit at the ball, instead of through it.
