Lateral Bounding

Have you ever noticed how hockey players end up as good golfers? Or how soccer players tend to be good at using their hips? This is because they are used to pushing off their feet in a lateral direction. You can benefit from learning to push laterally through the feet as well.

To do the lateral bounding drill, stand on 1 foot, and then get in your golf spine angle and hip bend. Then, jump to the side, trying to push through the inside edge of your foot. Land on your opposite leg, balance for a second, and then jump back to the other side. Pay attention to how it feels for the foot to press through the ground, then try to recreate that feeling during transition, or in a drill such as the step change of direction.
