Tommy Fleetwood can hit all the shots - booming drives, high drawing irons, flighted wedges. This is why Tommy often finds himself in the top 3 for strokes gained tee-to-green category. Golf coaches and fans watch in awe of his control, tempo and creativity. A key to Tommy’s ball striking is the “windmill” drill. Essentially, he hits less than full golf shots keeping his arms extended in the follow through. Some would refer to this as a “punch” shot. The key to this drill is the body’s rotation. This keeps the hands and wrists passive which stabilizes the clubface. The average player would certainly benefit from the drill, especially those who lack rotation and struggle with a “chicken wing” finish. A stable clubface is key for consistent ball striking, especially under pressure in a major championship. — PGA Coach Joanna Coe
