Golf Weight Transfer Drill

Transferring weight in the golf swing is not easy unless you know the Golf Weight Transfer Drill. It certainly shouldn’t be a conscious effort to transfer weight from your right foot to your left foot as this will probably cause you to sway from side to side too much as you swing the club making it difficult for you to play consistent golf. The correct way is explained in the following Golf Weight Transfer Drill.

Weight transfer in the golf swing

The weight is transferred to the right side on the backswing from the upper body. When the golf club swings back in the backswing it pulls the upper body with it causing the weight to shift onto the right foot at the top of the backswing. On the downswing the weight is transferred back onto the left side with the lateral movement of the hips to the left.
