Doing impact drills - your thoughts?

KuchhhhhhKuchhhhhh Members Posts: 2,241 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

I feel like I have a very good understanding of what I need to work on in my golf swing and also what happens in great swings however knowing what to do to improve or how to train a new motion is the most difficult part IMO. So as it relates to doing impact drills, what are your thoughts? I remember Johnny Miller saying he attributed his ballstriking to the thousands of times he rehearsed backswing to impact and then hit a shot.

Also, when I'm referring to "impact drills" I'm referencing making a fairly slow swing to the top of your swing and then coming down and stopping at impact of where you want to be, get that feeling, quickly get back setup and swing.

    Miller also said he used to hit those shots in the basement in the dark and that's why he can tell you the quality and direction of a shot by sound alone.

    I do a lot of slow and semi-slow and partial swings, but I never stop at impact.
