    Hi Paul. Love this drill I do it a lot and just like you said the ball goes just as far and a great sound off the club face. Need to have the courage to try it when playing a round Thanks for all the great tips I have improved a lot and now have a pretty good short game.

    • Rod,

      Very good. Everyone I have do it hits is great and it’s so easy. Not sure about hitting longer clubs so I would try them on the range first before playing. Might make the driver too short.

  2. Paul,

    Could you even do this drill with a fairway wood or driver?

    Hi Paul,new to the site and loving it!,
    I’ve been working hard on the rollover drill for over a month now. I try and do 400 a day, and without the ball all seems ok.
    When I try to hit the ball I Shank it often and can’t hook the ball even with a nine iron.

      Glad you like the site. Thanks.

      Sounds like you are trying to do it way too hard. The whole point is to roll it early for a little while to get used to releasing the club. If you do it hard are you then hitting. If you hit, you will lock the wrists and leave the face open.

      So tee up the ball. Easy swings with 7, 8, or 9 iron. Just do your normal backswing. As you start down think about crossing your hand over before you get to the ball. It is that simple.

      There are numberous ways I get people to do this:

      1. Roll the wrists.
      2. Thumbs to the target.
      3. Butt away from the target.
      4. Toe beats the heel through impact.
      5. Roll around a tree.

      So choose one. Do it slowly and don’t look for an amazing shot. You are trying to get it to hook. Low hook, high hook, pull, even a shot that is not airborne but pulled is good.

      Also, at home as you do them you need to memorize this feeling of them crossing then apply this feeling to the shot. I get the feeling you are thinking of hitting the ball instead of just doing the same feeling.

      You can do it.

      You can do it like this gentleman too:
