I'm Martin Hall.
00:05
My eye if fine, my ball striking is not.
00:07
I'm moving around too much.
00:09
I'm at it again and maybe you're too.
00:11
Here is as good a drill as I've got for you
00:13
to learn what it takes to have a centered swing.
00:16
Set up to a golf ball, either closing your right eye
00:20
if you're right-handed or putting an eye patch on.
00:22
Then, just put a shaft in the ground
00:24
just outside that golf ball, at such an angle
00:28
that as you look down, all you see is the cap
00:30
of that shaft, not the side, just the cap.
00:33
We can get rid of the golf ball now.
00:35
If you want to know what a centered golf swing feels like,
00:38
stay looking at the cap of that grip.
00:41
No side look on that cap.
00:43
As I go back and forth, look down
00:45
the barrel of that shaft and you will be sure
00:48
then you're not moving about.
00:50
It will lead to more solid contact just about every time.
