A drill that is very popular and beneficial when it comes to building skill is known as the radius drill. It is a simple drill to do, and it can provide you with some greater insight into your swings and what you might be doing wrong. It works as an excellent discovery drill when used with any sort of impact indicator, as well.
The drill itself will require a 7 iron, as well as a golf ball that is teed to half an inch. You will want to keep in mind that with this drill, you are not trying to hit the ball as hard as possible. Instead, you will take partial swings and you will be hitting the ball at the center of the clubhead without striking the ground at all. When you are using an impact indicator, such as face tape or impact powder, as mentioned, it can reveal an array of information for you.
You will be able to learn where the clubhead is in relation to the ground when the ball is hit, and you could learn how much loft is going into the ball. When you combine the drill with other drills to determine the impact point and the start direction, you will have a much better understanding of what is happening with your swings.
This information is important because it can tell us the things that you may need to change in order to get the results that you need. Once you know what needs to be changes, you can alter the way you are swinging and the way the clubhead hits the ball. It may take you some time to make the adjustments, of course, but it is a goal you will want to achieve because it can help to improve your game.
Of course, this is just one of the many different types of drills that you will learn when you start to play golf and get proper instruction. There are countless drills that can be used to help you make improvements to many different areas of your golf game. It is important that you have a good understanding of how to perform the drills, and that you use drills that come from qualified sources. Just because your friend created a drill that has seemingly helped them does not mean that it is something that you need to practice.
