For many amateur golfers, staying balanced throughout the swing is quite difficult. This video golf lesson features a drill that will help correct this problem.
Maintaining balance begins with the proper posture. The weight of the body should feel evenly distributed through the balls of the feet. Bending forward from the hip joint and a slight flex in the knees are is also important.
The drill, often called the "statue drill," will help to ensure that you stay balanced. After setting up with the correct posture, take the shot, and then hold the finishing position until the ball meets the ground. The ability to hold the position without adjusting any parts of the body means that the swing was well-balanced.
