Practice must be focused, determined and in an environment where there is feedback.
– Malcolm Gladwell
If you want to get better at golf then you had better practice and your practice better have a purpose. It must be focused on a topic and there must be some feedback involved. That is exactly what Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson set out to do in their books “The Game Before the Game” and “Every Shot Has A Purpose“. These two top golf instructors put together a system for purposeful practice that can help the average golfer improve. Every shot you take in your golf practice session must have a purpose but also must also fit into your busy life.
3 Parts To Any Purposeful Golf Practice:
- Warm Up – What you do before hitting balls
- Maintenance – Drills to keep your swing performing efficiently
- Preparation – Simulating golf and providing feedback on our game
This is the place to come to get a daily practice routine to use. Each time to come back to this page, it will refresh with a NEW PRACTICE PLAN for you to use with drills from top golf instructors. Every golf practice session will include a Warm Up, Maintenance Drill, Preparation Shots (Track your shots with our practice stat sheets to get feedback on your game) and a 3 hole simulation drill. The practice session should take about 30 minutes to complete. I will be adding drills and plans so that you can golf all year-long at home. It is your personal golf practice instructor.

Drill #4 – 2 x 4 Impact Drill
Peter Kostis has a drill he uses with his students to get them to feel the forward lean of the body and clubhead at impact. I call this impact drill the 2 x 4 drill as you will need a block of wood or something solid. You will really be able to feel the shaft lean and the forward press that is needed to compress the ball at impact.
To do this drill, put the 2 x 4 on the ground in front of your clubface at address. Now press your clubface against the board almost moving the board forward. This pre-impact position is an important feeling to have to be consistent with your swing. Once you have the feeling, move over to a real ball and hit it. You should see great improvement in your contact.
