Cardiogolf’s Shortee Practice Club
Get your heart pumping and your golf form in shape with Cardiogolf’s Shortee Practice Club. No golf ball required!
Professional golfers know the importance of athletic development for golf. As a recreational golfer, you may not have the time to train like an elite athlete, but by simply adding a few swing drills into your daily routine, you can dramatically improve your game. And you don’t have to go to the golf course or driving range, you can do these exercises at home with your own ‘Shortee’ Club!
Our practice swings are usually smoother, longer and more on-plane with better tempo than our real swings. As you make practice swings, you can focus on making certain motions to improve technique such as making a fuller shoulder turn, keeping your spine angle throughout the swing and shifting your weight correctly.
As you make practice swings, you can swing faster than you usually do to help you get used to swinging faster to improve clubhead speed. As you make practice swings, you can work on certain moves in your swing without worrying where the ball is going.
The 23″ ‘Shortee’ Club is great for indoor swing training and off-season conditioning. My friends at GolfGym were inspired by my Cardiogolf program and designed ‘Shortee’ Club for my students to practice indoors just like I do in Cardiogolf.
A few things to think about while you are making your practice swings:
- Look down at where a ball would be and try to simulate hitting a ball as much as possible
- Work on your swing fundamentals. Monitor your posture, alignment, ball position and grip to make sure they are correct
- Keep your head level throughout your swing
- Complete each practice swing by holding your finish for a moment, as if you were watching your ball fly down the fairway
- Imagine the perfect golf shot as you swing
- Finish in balance
- Start each swing from the beginning; don’t swing back and forth continuously
- Make each swing as if you were hitting a real shot
In Cardiogolf class, I use the ‘Shortee’ Club to do exercises and swing drills. The club is short for a couple of reasons:
- the ‘Shortee’ club is easy to swing indoors without hitting the walls or ceilings
- use the ‘Shortee’ club to warm up at golf courses that don’t have practice ranges
- throw the ‘Shortee’ club in your suitcase when you travel
- the clubhead is closer to your hands, so it is easy to monitor the clubface and learn how to square the face at impact
- since you are not hitting balls with the ‘Shortee’ club, there is no judgment of where the ball goes, so you can work on your technique without getting frustrated
- the ‘Shortee’ is lighter than a regular club, so you can learn to swing the club faster to develop clubhead speed
When you purchase the ‘Shortee’ Club you’ll receive Cardiogolf Instructional Videos to download and follow on your computer, tablet or smart phone.
The Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club & 20 Video Series includes drills and exercises to help golfers improve their technique and no ball is required.
