Feet together for harmony

Feet together for harmony

The keystone to an effective swing is to harmonize the rotation of the body and the swinging motion of the arms. Hitting balls with your feet together is a simple and helpful drill that helps you to get the feeling of these two components working together, providing the drill is done properly. The key is to focus on the balance points and make sure you rotate your body and not just swing your club from side to side with your arms and hands.

Just try hitting a few sets of 10 balls with a 7-iron, playing the ball off a tee-peg to get you going. Then go back to hitting balls normally with a regular stance. Try and maintain the balanced feel in your full swing; this should help build consistency and control.

This is something that is very consistent in all good players so the next time you are at the range give it a try, but remember to rotate the body as well as swing the arms.

Following confirmation from the Golfing Unions and Sport Ireland that golf is not permitted under level 5 restrictions, unfortunately Powerscourt Golf Club will temporarily be closed until further notice.

Both courses and facilities will re-open as soon as government guidelines allow. Further updates will be posted on our social media channels as the situation changes.

We look forward to welcoming back our members and visitors in the not too distant future. In the meantime, please stay safe and we encourage everyone to adhere to the current guidelines to help flatten the curve.
