Baseball To Golf Drill For An Effortless Swing

Aug 16, 2023

In this blog post, we will discuss a drill that can help you achieve an effortless golf swing. This drill is called "baseball to golf" and was inspired by a conversation I had with a lady who had played softball in her younger days.

The concept behind this drill is to apply the swinging motion used in baseball to the golf swing. In baseball, the batter swings the bat back and forth before hitting the ball. The key is to have a relaxed stance with your weight on your back foot, loose arms, and loose wrists. This allows for a more fluid and effortless swing.

In golf, the setup is slightly different. The body is more coiled, the arms are slightly extended, and the wrists are still loose. However, the key is to maintain a relaxed and loose stance, just like in baseball. By focusing on the ball and not getting too fixated on hitting it hard, you can achieve a more effortless swing.

To practice this drill, start by imagining that the golf ball is the baseball pitcher. Go through the golf setup while looking at the ball as if it were the pitcher. This will help you loosen up and make better swings. You can also try this drill with a driver, warming up by pretending it's a baseball bat and then going through the same process with the golf setup.

This drill worked for the lady he was teaching and her husband, so it's worth giving it a try. It is important to keep your mind focused on the ball and not get too caught up in hitting it hard. Teeing up an iron can make it easier to practice this drill.

In conclusion, the "baseball to golf" drill is a great way to achieve an effortless golf swing. By applying the swinging motion used in baseball and focusing on the ball, you can loosen up and make better swings. Give this drill a try and see if it helps improve your golf game.
