      Bob, You need to be doing lots of practice swings as you hit balls. It is not just about hitting ball after ball. Do some practice swings … hit some balls and so on. I would put a mirror close by so you can be checking your positioning. The whole idea is to make the movement perfect.

  2. Hi Paul,
    I am sure you’re aware that the driving ranges here in the New York area do not have grass to hit off. We are hitting of mats. What I try to do at my driving range practice is hit shots with different clubs i would normally hit when I’m out on the course, rather than just hacking and hitting ball after ball. Anything else you can recommend for practice would be helpful?

    • George,

      If you are working on swing positions then you would be hitting the same club to the same target. The best way to do this would be to do 2-3 practice swings per ball you hit. So 2-3 practice swings working on one or two things. They you attempt to do what you did in the practice swing with the ball in front of you. Although I do get what you are doing by hitting all sorts of different shots you need to be working on swing position and building a great swing. Once you get the great swing you can certainly do this if you want.

      I try to get people to tee up their ball when working on the swing. Pros tee it up when making changes. This allows room for error. If you didn’t and you topped a bunch of shots you wouldn’t be too excited about changing anything. So mats don’t really matter if you tee it up.

      Playing different shots tells me you are not doing the practice swings so like I said, right now you need to practice as I suggested above. You also need to be doing these practice swings nightly at home. Do a minimum of 25 practice swings working on 1 or two things. This was there is no ball to hit. No ball means you can focus on perfecting the movement because there is nothing to hit.

      Give this a try and stay focused on the positions.
