The Anthony Kim checkpoint drill will give you the green light to unleash your swing. Anthony Kim’s go-to drill.
It’s also a favourite drill for Nick Faldo and Mike Weir.
The drill will stop you from overthinking your golf swing, freewheel your swing, and play with confidence. If you’ve set the club well on the backswing, your subconscious brain will be given the green light to freewheel the swing. The more freedom you have in your swing, the better you’ll play.
Step 1: Watch
Watch the video.
Step 2: Set The Club
Take three practice swings setting the club early on the backswing, then hit a ball. Because you know you’ve set the club correctly, free-wheel your swing through to the finish.
Step 3: Keep Score
Hit 10 balls. Give yourself one point each time you feel that you set the club early on the backswing, and felt that you free-wheeled your swing through to the finish.
