Develop Your Pivot By Tossing A Medicine Ball

Students always ask for a good drill or feel for developing a proper pivot in their golf swing. I show them an image while standing in front of a mirror with a basket of balls or medicine ball of what a proper pivot looks like. This requires a person to stand very athletic with their elbows on their rib cage and arms closer to their body. From this setup, they learn to pivot/coil into their trailing foot and then they would learn to unwind by tossing the object towards the target. This motion develops the proper pivot in the golf swing and provides a good workout in the process. This exercise uses all muscles in a coordinated motion similar to the motion used while swinging a baseball bat, tennis racquet or hockey stick. The golf swing is an athletic motion just like these other sports.
