Myview - Push Ball

Get in your good set up position and address a golf ball. From there, try to get into a good impact position using the body image that you have practiced with the MGR drill. Now, apply a force into the golf ball. If you flip the club, or if your path is way off, then the ball will slide up the face and not go far, if you do this right, the ball will “stick” to the face and the ball will go flying.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:06,000
This is my view of the push ball drill. The push ball drill is a great drill for going from

00:00:06,000 --> 00:00:12,000
impact to follow through. So if we just refresh what that's going to be. So impact position,

00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:18,000
most of my weights on my lead foot, shoulders are kind of tilted and rotated. Right arm is going to be

00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:22,000
slightly bent, lead arms free straight, left wrist is neutral, right wrist is cut. So that's kind of,

00:00:22,000 --> 00:00:26,000
those checkpoints for you. Now during the release, my body is going to continue rotating as my arm is

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:34,000
extend. So this follow through position is going to be basically the end of my swing or when my arms

00:00:34,000 --> 00:00:40,000
have reached their kind of furthest point away from me. So the push ball drill is literally

00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:46,000
practicing going from those two movements. So I'm going to get in my set of position.

00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:54,000
Then I'm going to rotate to impact and now from impact, I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to

00:00:54,000 --> 00:01:00,000
extend my arms and kind of push or throw the ball. You'll feel or you'll see that the clubs

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:06,000
stays low to the ground as my arms extend. Now this is a nine iron. The more loft you have,

00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:14,000
the harder it's going to be. But one other little key to this is you have to make sure that the club

00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:20,000
is actually in contact with the golf ball when you go to push. Otherwise when you go to push,

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:26,000
let's say I'm back here. When I go to push, the ball will just kind of slide up the face. So that

00:01:26,000 --> 00:01:33,000
is an exaggeration. The other thing that this catches is if I try to use just my hands to release

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:38,000
the club. So if I'm in this good impact position and I just kind of use my hands, you'll see

00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:43,000
that the ball just slides up the face. So push ball drill is a great drill from going from set up

00:01:43,000 --> 00:01:48,000
position to impact position and then you can train it with little nine to three and moving on to

00:01:48,000 --> 00:01:50,000
full swings.
