Whip Technique

FULL SWING DRILL

  • Assume a proper athletic & balanced setup position. Allow the Orange ball to hover a few inches above the ground.
  • Begin slowly swinging the whip back and forth in a continuous, pendulum-like motion. Maintain the proper “one-piece” connection throughout and allow for the natural hinging of the wrists as the length of the motion increases.
  • Allow the gathering momentum to take over and extend the length of the swing. Centrifugal force will carry you through to a fully rotated and balanced swing motion. Practice a smooth, consistent rhythm throughout the drill and always “finish” each swing in balance.
  • Continue the back & forth, full swing motion without interruption for approximately one minute, or until you feel uncomfortable and/or fatigued. Try not to impart any force or manipulation of the whip during the drill. Allow it to move along the swing arc naturally and focus on your balance.
  • Too often golfers engage in swing drills in a rush to finish and pay little attention to the dynamics that can help them on the golf course. This simple drill can help you improve in many areas and quickly if you focus on the right things for a few short minutes.
