The Hitman Drill

Right Hip Action

This is a hip turn drill that has worked for me. I call it the Hitman Drill because it reminds me of a hip movement done by Chuck "The Hitman" Hiter, the golf trick shot artist regularly featured on The Golf Channel.

Get into your proper setup stance and place the toe of your right foot (for right-handed players) across from the heel of your left foot, with your feet about shoulder-width apart. While maintaining square shoulder alignment, swing the club down the plane. You will notice that your right foot and right hip naturally roll inward, allowing the club to swing to a complete and balanced finish.

In the photo above, you can see this action represented as I place my hand on my right hip, giving the impression of my hip rolling inward.
