Indoor Drills

Indoor Drills are golf drills that can be performed inside to improve your golf game. Indoor Drills consist of full swing, putting and short game drills. While some of the drills require a ball, many do not. Indoor Drills are extremely effective because the golfer becomes more aware of the motion and what their body is doing as opposed to being result or score oriented.

  • Paper Cup Tells All

    When practicing your putting indoors, putt to a paper cup instead of using glass. The lightness of the cup will give you a better read on your putts. If you hit the putt dead center, nothing will happen. If you are slightly off however, the cup will move left or right. This forces dead center hits.

  • The Ball is Irrelevant at First

    You don't have to get to the range to practice. You can change your swing indoors. The ball is irrelevant at first. In fact a lot of players change their swing faster when they can't see their ball flight. It keeps them from being result oriented and more focused on what they are trying to do with their swings.
