Tommy Fleetwood's Shot-Shaping Drill (Video)

This tip from Tommy is around four-and-a-half years old, but it's clear that it has helped him become the shotmaker he is today. Take a look:

No doubt you've already figured out why this video tip caught my eye. Tommy has built this shot-shaping drill around the L-to-L drill! I never cease to be amazed at how many ways this simple drill can be used to teach new concepts as well as correct swing errors.

Tommy says that the shorter swing minimizes how much you can use your hands, so it's easier to focus on how to actually shape the shot. (And I would add that, because this practice swing is so short, you don't have as much time to make other errors that would complicate the learning process.)

And once you've got a handle on how to create fades and draws with an L-to-L swing, he says you can start stretching the swing out until you can reproduce the drill results with a full swing. I couldn't have put it better myself!

Once again the L-to-L drill proves its usefulness. It's the Swiss Army knife of drills -- you should start using it immediately!
