I added the Golf Transition Drill to the Golf Practice Planner today because the transition is the magic move in the golf swing.

The Golf Transition Drill will teach you how to transition like the pros.
Step 1: Watch
Watch the video below.
Step 2: Pause At The Top
You’re probably not going to hit good shots with this drill. That’s okay. This drill is designed to help change your thoughts. Choose an iron club or driver. Take your backswing and pause at the top (see image below).
Step 3: Think Hips & Legs On The Downswing
While you’re paused at the top of the swing, in your mind switch your thoughts to your “hips and legs” to make the club come down to impact. This will train you to stop hitting from the top of the swing. Good players use their hips and legs in the transition. Poor players don’t use their hips and legs in the transition.
