Weight Transfer In Your Golf Swing

If you are new to golf or you want to improve your swing, then weight transfer has been on your list of areas to improve. I find that weight transfer poses a challenge from time to time because I forget to properly transfer my weight from my trail foot to my lead foot. Golf is a game played from the ground up and understanding the proper method to transfer our weight is critical to improving all areas of our game. Also, I found a great drill to help improve our weight shift that is simple and repeatable.

The proper weight shift consists of moving your weight from the trail foot to the lead foot, but keeping it inside your hips. This dynamic movement can be a challenge to master, but it is important to a great game. In my game, I try not have any weight transfer outside of my feet. I intentionally feel my weight distribution on the inside of trail foot at the top of my swing, I start my down swing by shifting my weight to the inside of my lead foot, and follow through so that 80% of my weight is in the center or outside of lead foot. It really is simpler than I describe, but when mastered, it is a game changer.

Fortunately, I found a great drill that will help with your weight shift:

If you can master this drill, I think you will be able to master the proper weight shift for your golf swing. It will take some time, but if you repeatedly hit balls with a wedge under you trail heel it will go a long way for your game.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. That’s exactly what I was talking about yesterday. Our weight needs to be beginning to shift back to the lead foot before we get to the top of the swing. You’ll feel the stretch. The separation. The added torque.
