Drills That Will Improve Your Game Through the Bag

By Pernilla Lindber, Golf Digest, 04/24/19, 12:00PM CDT


If you don't swing down into the ball with your weight forward, you're probably going to hit that shaft. Best part about this drill is that you can do it anywhere.

It took eight years playing on the LPGA Tour— including surviving an eight-hole playoff that spilled into a Monday-morning finish—but I finally won my first event this year, the ANA Inspiration in March. With my fiance on the bag, winning that major championship was one of the best moments of my life. I worked hard to earn that experience, and it proved that the way I do it is really helping me become a better player. I want to share some of my tips so you can upgrade your game. Maybe you're looking to break 90 or move up a flight in your club's member-guest. No matter the goal, being a better golfer starts with practicing all aspects of the game.

To get you started, here are some of my favorite drills through the bag. I'm a big believer in using drills. Not only do they help reinforce technique, they make practice more interesting. That way you're making the most out of those range sessions without yawning your way through them. The first one I want to talk about is going to help you finally cure that slice or pull. — With Keely Levins
