How Throwing a Football “Golf Style” Can Cure Your Swing


Want to feel the proper relationship between the arm swing and the body turn? Get your football out, find a buddy, and go toss the ol’ pigskin around… golf style!

Throwing a football this way will help you feel where your arms need to be in the golf swing, the proper hinge of the wrist, how strong your grip needs to be, how the timing of the kinetic chain will kick in (without you even thinking about it), and how you should pace the swing.

With so many benefits, you might even want to bring a football to the course to toss when the play gets too slow or to use as a warm-up!
