The Belly Button Drill

The belly button drill is a simple drill that Keith Rogers is a big fan of from Jim Mclean. All you have to do is bury the club in your belly button and rotate your shoulders to the right. You’ll notice that there is no rolling of the hands involved, and it sets the club and club face in a perfect position.

Keith Rogers also shows you can take this drill one step further by rotating back, checking your position at the halfway back, adding your hinge and dropping back down through not allowing the butt end of the club to return to your belly button. This will keep the shaft moving, with the hands always leading the way through the golf swing.
