Impact Bag - Outside Lead Foot

An impact bag can be a great tool for players to better understand how they are moving in space. For this drill, I will place the impact bag outside of the lead foot and ask players to:

  1. Brush the ground.
  2. Strike the low side of the impact bag.
  3. Keep the hands and clubhead in line (or vertical).

These (3) checkpoints will require players to properly tie together the pivot and sequencing of the arms. Players who struggle with accomplishing this may have more of a "flip" or "chicken-wing" style release. If you fall into this category, re-visiting drills such as the "grip throws" or "merry-go-round" can be a good place to start.
