#GetGolfFit Series presented by Michelob ULTRA: One-Foot Balance Drill

This simple one-foot drill will help your weight transfer and strengthen your game!


Weight transfer, power and balance are all key parts of a great golf swing. Take a look at this quick, simple drill to help you find the balance to get your golf game in perfect shape.

The Pinery and The Club at Pradera’s Director of Golf Instruction and Class-A PGA Professional, Jason Witczak, is back with student Elizabeth Carpenter for the latest in our video series, #GetGolfFit!

The third installment is all about balance and weight transfer in the golf swing. Notice how Elizabeth takes a controlled backswing to ensure her balance stays corrected on her trail foot, and when she strides out all of her weight transfers through the impact zone of the golf swing. Give it a try at home!

How to do it:

  • Take a normal address position, then lift your lead foot

  • Maintain your balance with a very slight knee bend
  • As you begin your downswing, take a slight stride out with the raised
