GolfTEC Mirror Drill: Control the Length of your backswing.

The video below shows the mirror drill. The mirror drill is a great way to help you control the length of the backswing. Golf is not always played with a full swing. Sometimes we need shorter or longer swings based on trajectory or the length of the shot we want to hit.


We want to mark a few swing positions on a mirror or something similar. The first position is the 7:30 position, then mark the 9 o'clock position, and finally the 10:30 position. We used tape but you can also use a dry erase marker if you like.

Next execute the drill. Go ahead and take your setup. You’ll first start at the 7:30 position. We'll take it back to 7:30 and look up in the mirror to confirm if we’ve accurately reached a 7:30 position. If not we'll make the necessary adjustments the second time. Then you'll move onto the 9 o'clock position and do 3-4 reps in this position and then move on to 10:30. Confirm and swing through.

Once you've practiced this you'll find that you trajectory and distance with much better ease.
