The Toe-Up Drill

The position of the clubface at impact plays the most important role in the direction of your shots. The Slinger will only reward a square clubface at the impact position. Before making any full swings with the Slinger this drill should be mastered. Hold the Slinger with a neutral grip and correct posture. Have a target line established. Swing the Slinger back to a waist high position. The shaft should be parallel to the ground and parallel to the target line at this checkpoint. The toe of the club should be pointed up or the clubface should match your spine angle this indicates a square position. Grip pressure should be relaxed and the same it was at address. Your weight should have shifted to the inside of your right foot. To initiate the forward swing allow your weight to shift and rotate back to your left side. The correct weight shift will guide the Slinger on the correct downswing plane. The ball will release out of the Slinger at impact when the shaft and your left arm line up. For this to happen you must release your right hand, arm hip and knee through the impact position and into a half follow through position. Finish with both your upper and lower centers facing the target. Your arms should finish in front of center with both the upper left and right arms connected to your chest. The club shaft is once again parallel to the ground and the target line with the toe of the club pointed up.
