A List Of Inside-Out Golf Swing Drills For Top-Class Golfers

Just by observing the path of a downswing you could differentiate an amateur from a professional. A large section of the amateur community is used to the outside-in golf swing, whereas the professionals predominantly use the inside-out swing. The result, as you can guess, is always in favor of the professionals who use the inside-out swing. It’s a well-known fact that there is a higher risk of a slice shot in the case of the outside-in swings.

How does the path of the downswing affect the swing distance?

A very interesting experiment was carried out to analyze the effect of swing path on the various outcomes of the swing. The researchers used a robot to swing in an outside-in (9-degree), inside-out (9-degree), and inside-in (0-degree) swing.

The result says it all. The researchers found no significant difference in the ball speed. The launch angle saw a change when the ball was hit inside-out. The backspin is minimal in an inside-out swing. The crucial statistics – the distance – increased when an inside-out golf swing was adopted.

Long drives are the hallmark of the top-class golfers. The drive shot can go further under two circumstances – when the launch angle is high; the backspin is minimal. Both these parameters are ticked only when you play the inside-out swing.

The Headcover Drill

The headcover drill is a simple technique to prevent you from hitting an outside-in swing and encourage a more inside-out swing path. On the course or in the driving range get ready to practice the drive shot. Follow the normal setup procedure and after positioning the ball place a headcover 5 to 7 inches from the ball on the target line. Now, play the drive shot. If you inadvertently use an outside-in swing the club will hit the headcover, interfering in the normal swing. Keep practicing this drill till you regularly miss the headcover and become consistent playing the inside-out swing.

The Chair Drill

Players focus too much on keeping the head in a still position that they forget the hip swaying during the swing. Swaying the hip too much can encourage a steep downswing, which will make it very difficult to play the inside-out swing.

An easy solution to the swaying problem is to practice the Chair Drill. Assume the normal stance and position a chair near the right hip (near the left hip in the case of left-handed players). Every time you sway too much your hip will bump into the chair.
