One of the things that the really long players have in the game of golf is a good weight transfer. We can borrow a little something from the game of baseball — I call it “step it up a notch.”

There’s a couple of rules to this baseball step drill and I want you to understand how it occurs. I want you to take your regular setup, move your left foot back next to your right and from there, step and swing. This is going to allow your lower body to lead and your upper body to swing attached to it, which results in some weight transfer and some power. 

I wouldn’t recommend hitting these on the course, but a few of those on the practice tee will allow you to feel the weight transfer you want on the course.
