We’ve got a great drill for you to improve your low point control and sustain the lag in your swing.
Coming to you from a summer golf school at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, one of our favorite drills, The Great Wall of China from the great Ben Doyle.
The Great Wall of China
- Take the toe of the club and dig a trench in the sand of a bunker.
- Hover the club in that valley.
- Brush away the backside of the valley…
- And take out the front side of the valley.
Lag the clubhead in takeaway to help create a bit of a whip sensation. Using your rotation to start the takeaway, the sand’s going to delay your soft wrists, feel the club change directions in your backswing, and then smash out the front side of the wall.
And if you really want to get the most out of your practice, use your Impact Strap while you practice this drill. The Impact Strap will force you to stay in your side bend as you rotate through and take out the front side of the wall.
