Full Swing and Chipping Drill

The following instructions provide step-by-step guidance on how to use ProStance to practice and improve your full swing and chipping:

  1. Fully deflate the ProStance (by opening the pressure value and releasing any air from the inner tube).
  2. Stand on the ProStance with it located within the instep of your feet (bare feet or wearing golf shoes).
  3. Depending on your weight, style of shoe and golfing proficiency inflate the inner tube (using a standard hand/bicycle pump) until your toes and heels just start to come off the ground. You are attempting to create a sensation of balance where the toes and heels of each foot are lightly touching the ground with equal pressure. You will likely find that you need to make a series of small adjustments to maintain the desired equal pressure distribution, however this will happen quite instinctively as you progressively fine-tune your posture to find the optimum, balance position.
  4. Start by hitting smooth, half-swing shots, concentrate on maintaining your balance throughout the entire swing and especially with your right foot during the backswing. Gradually progress to hitting three-quarter shots before finally building-up to a full swing.
  5. Step off the ProStance and hit full shots. Focus on maintaining the same sensations of balance and weight distribution as you experienced while using the ProStance. Feel how your feet and body react with the ground, feel the importance of a balanced and athletic address position, and begin to feel the correct sequencing of the backswing and downswing with energy directed towards the target. the ProStance should enable you to develop a much better feel for your own body positions at address, top of backswing, impact and finish.
