Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge
In my opinion, daily practice is the key to success towards any goal. Making 10 practice swings a day or exercising for 5 minutes everyday will get you playing better and in better shape than exercising or practicing for two or three hours once a week. First of all, it is always hard to find big chunks of time to do massive workouts or beat balls on the driving range. Secondly, the long workouts or practice sessions usually lead to fatigued swings, injuries and ingrained bad habits.
There is something to be said about the momentum of taking small daily steps towards a goal that is cumulatively better than taking big steps with less frequency.
Use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to practice everyday. If you don’t have room to swing a regular golf indoors or you can’t make it to the golf course or driving range, use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to practice anywhere and at anytime.

Today we focus on the Wrists-
Ideally as you swing back, the wrists hinge naturally. Every golfer has a different degree of angle in the wrists, but most good ball strikers create the wrist hinge at about the 3/4 of the way back position in the backswing. So that the club and arms form the letter “L”. If you lack wrist hinge, then you will probably end up hinging or bending your elbows instead, destroying a major power lever in your swing. This drill will help you feel how the wrists hinge on the backswing.
Wrist Hinge Drill-
- Set up in your golf stance, holding a club in just your lead hand. Then hold your lead wrist (left for the right-handed golfer) with your back hand.
- Swing the club to the 3/4 position and rotate your lead wrist so that the butt end of the club points to the ground as shown in the photo on the left. Hold the position for 5 to 8 seconds and return to start position.
- Do 8 to 10 repetitions of drill. If you lack wrist hinge, then the butt of club will point to your torso as shown in the photo on right and you’ll lack the proper wrist hinge to create power.
- Place your hands normally on the club and do regular practice swings, trying to create wrist hinge.
