Hello Richard. You can over do anything. As long as your goal isn't to start guiding and steering the heavy club around. You should be fine. Let it happen naturally.

This looks like a good drill but my back swing is too flat, sort of like a baseball swing. Any drills of making it more upright or steeper? Thanks!

Hello Aman. Take a look at Golf Backswing Shoulder Plane Drill and the 4 Square Drill.

Thank you Craig. The shoulder plane drill seems to be helping significantly. The issue I am now seeing is that I keep hitting the toe of the club. Any thoughts on what might be causing that and some potential drills/fixes? Thanks again.

There's a RST video on Youtube about hitting it of the toe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpRxlAHF6bA. Hope that helps.

With this drill is this the speed and temp you need to use on the full swing..?? Cheers Donald

Hello Donald. Typically, with the two clubs it takes a little longer time to swing the mass back and through. So, the speed and tempo will be a little bit off from standard.

Best 9 holes of my life, 39 with 3 three putts (ha). I had this feeling of rhe weight shift slight lateral movement (hip line) momentum moving swinging the club with some shoulder glide. Is this the feeling you are trying to get from this drill?

Hello Eric. Yes, the weight of the 2 clubs makes it very hard not to recruit some weight shift and proper rotation to move. It also gives you the sensation of how the club can move effortlessly back and through.

Hello Chan. I apologize for the error. It is playing correctly on my end. I would try logging out and clearing history/cache. Followed by logging back and see if it plays.

Oddly enough, this drill is really the essence of the golf swing, for me at least. While golf lessons are great and important they can and often do lead to an over emphasis on thinking through the swing rather than allowing yourself to swing through it by letting the body do the core work. (No pun intended). Keep up the good work guys !

Steve, you are a pretty fit guy who works out regularly so this might be easy for you but for the majority of us just swinging one club would be sufficient, but I will give it a try.

Yep for sure. Doing it mid round is a great tool when you start to get tense in your arms and wrists and get too arms with your swing

There are quite a few drills that I have to keep the swing centered, keep you on track, help you keep moving forward. When you just get off, when you get lost and you can't find your way back home to find your swing. One of my favorite drills is a two club drill. Now this two club drill does a couple things, and I'm going to explain in depth why we're going to do this in just a moment. But most golfers get confused about the blending of the elevation of the arms and the arm movement in general, with the body rotation. And because of that, because both golfers are right side dominant, they start picking the club up. And when you pick the club of you tend to fall forward, you start to move the club independent of the body and things get really disjointed and you start losing power very quickly to get everything back together. The simplest drill that I can tell you to do is to take two clubs, take your right hand off the club and forget golf for a second and just swing the clubs back and forth.

You'll notice. First of all, that it feels really heavy.

That's the point? It should feel heavy because this mass is extra. Weight is going to force the club to swing on a more natural swing, plain and arc. If you're used to picking the club up, manipulating it, steering it, making it go all kinds of wacky places. As soon as you do this with just your left arm only, it becomes very difficult to make a bad golf swing because the weight, the inertia of the club, the momentum of it is forcing it to swing on a natural plane. So if you have the tendency to kind of pick the club up, you're not sure where it should go. Take your right hand off the club. Take two clubs, take your normal setup, forget golf for a second and turn your body to move the clubs. That's critical because if you start swinging just your arms, you're taking out all the muscle mass to produce power from your body and trying to rely on just your arms and hands.

There's not enough muscle mass there to move the club very quickly. So as you start moving your body to get that club swinging back and forth. Now, all of a sudden you start feeling momentum and body movement, and that's key for generating power in the swing, enter proper swing plane. Now, of course, we also have these training aids on the site. The G4S club is my favorite for this because you can hit balls with it. And because of the soft shaft, it gives you the same feeling and it feels heavier than a normal club, but combine these two together and you get the benefit of the soft shaft and the extra weight to help you start making a normal golf swing. So anytime you get lost, take your right hand off, grab a couple of clubs, start swinging them back and forth. And all of a sudden that club is going to start swinging on playing for you.
