Drawing a Line in the Sand – Forward Swing Pivot Drill

We had a great question come in about something a Dewsweeper could do on their own to insure they were making a better forward swing pivot. Here is a wonderful drill you can do on your own at your golf course or practice facility.

Find yourself a bunker. Draw a line in the sand. Place your left foot just to the left of the line and make your stance. Now make golf swings trying to hit the sand in front of the line. As you get better at doing this you will find that the only way to move the low point up in front of the line is to make a better pivot motion and to get your trunk more on top of the ball at impact. This has your body or trunk moving forward rather than tilted up and back which is what happens most of the time when you have a poor forward swing pivot and swing the club too much with your arms.
