Annika on Playing Half Shots (Video)

This is a video Annika did last January for the LET. It's a unique drill for quieting your lower body when you play half shots. (I'd just call it a pitch but hey, she's Annika, She can call it anything she wants!)

I don't think I've ever seen this cross-legged version. Note that she crosses her trailing leg in front of her lead leg. This is important because you want to quiet your body movement during your backswing, NOT your downswing -- you want your body to move freely into your finish.

Let me repeat that: You want your body to move freely into your finish. If you have trouble getting the shot on line, that's the first thing you should check. That free-flowing finish keeps the clubface from flipping over at impact.

A simple drill, but I can see how this one should help you hit the ball more crisply on short shots. And since it's Annika, you know it's got to be a good drill, right?
