00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,000
This drill circuit is for working on impact.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:05,000
So I'm going to take you through a handful.

00:00:05,000 --> 00:00:10,000
Remember, this is just an example of how you can practice using some of these drills.

00:00:10,000 --> 00:00:13,000
So let's say I'm working on my impact alignment.

00:00:13,000 --> 00:00:17,000
Well, first one I'm going to do is the door jam.

00:00:17,000 --> 00:00:20,000
So I'm going to put the golf ball up against a yoga block,

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:22,000
get into my good setup position,

00:00:22,000 --> 00:00:25,000
and then try to get to where I'm pushing.

00:00:25,000 --> 00:00:27,000
Okay, that's where I want to feel.

00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:30,000
So that's, I got a little image of that.

00:00:30,000 --> 00:00:31,000
Next I'm going to refine it.

00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:34,000
And I'm going to do the merry go round,

00:00:34,000 --> 00:00:37,000
and turn, and then get down, and I'm like,

00:00:37,000 --> 00:00:40,000
okay, so now compare to that first time.

00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:43,000
Yeah, I definitely have that right shoulder a little bit more back,

00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:46,000
and that makes me feel a little bit stronger.

00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:48,000
So then the next one I could do,

00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:50,000
now that I've got a good little snapshot,

00:00:50,000 --> 00:00:54,000
let's get used to going from that impact position

00:00:54,000 --> 00:00:56,000
into a follow through.

00:00:56,000 --> 00:00:58,000
So now I've got that image of my hand.

00:00:58,000 --> 00:01:01,000
I'm going to go through my little setup process.

00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:03,000
There's that right shoulder down,

00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:07,000
and then from here I'm going to throw the ball.

00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:10,000
I felt my shoulder come up a little bit,

00:01:10,000 --> 00:01:13,000
so I'm going to do that again.

00:01:13,000 --> 00:01:17,000
So set up, I'm going to get into that good impact position,

00:01:17,000 --> 00:01:19,000
and then I'm going to throw the ball.

00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:20,000
That was much better.

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:24,000
I kept that shoulder down, and then last piece.

00:01:26,000 --> 00:01:28,000
We can't just stop right there.

00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:33,000
Let's practice impact fix to nine to three.

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:37,000
So impact fix, I'm going to get there, impact fix.

00:01:37,000 --> 00:01:39,000
That's a little better.

00:01:39,000 --> 00:01:40,000
There we go.

00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:43,000
Okay, and then last piece would be the nine to three.

00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:54,000
So that's a good way to practice.

00:01:54,000 --> 00:01:56,000
After I do that nine to three,

00:01:56,000 --> 00:01:58,000
if I was really being good,

00:01:58,000 --> 00:02:00,000
I could come back to impact and say,

00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:02,000
okay, I made a good job going from follow through to impact,

00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:04,000
or from impact to follow through.

00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:05,000
That was a good little circuit.

00:02:05,000 --> 00:02:07,000
Now I can bring the yoga block in,

00:02:07,000 --> 00:02:09,000
reinforce this, run through it,

00:02:09,000 --> 00:02:11,000
10 times or so,

00:02:11,000 --> 00:02:14,000
and then move on to some of the more random parts of practice,

00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:16,000
or the game parts of practice.
