#GetGolfFit Series presented by Michelob ULTRA: Dyna Disk Balance

Our BRAND NEW HD Video Fitness Series will help you balance life on and off the golf course and get your game in shape…


Nothing is more important than balance in our lives. That goes for work and play, family and friends, as well as on and off the golf course. The Pinery and The Club at Pradera’s Director of Golf Instruction and Class-A PGA Professional, Jason Witczak, has teamed up with student Elizabeth Carpenter for our new video series, #GetGolfFit, to help you find that balance.

The first video in our 15-part series focuses on balance and shoulder tilt and utilizes two tools that can be found in nearly every golf club around. Pay close attention to how Elizabeth keeps a solid center of gravity and proper swing posture through the entire drill with Jason’s guidance.

Dyna Disk Balance Drill:

#GetGolfFit Fitness Series: Dyna Disk Balance

What you’ll need:

  • Two Dyna Disks and an Orange Whip OR a golf club to simulate a swing

How to do it:

  • Take your normal address stance, placing both feet in the middle of your Dyna Disks, trying to maintain equal weight distribution
  • Notice that when you grip your Orange Whip or club, your trail shoulder will be lower than your lead shoulder
  • Take a normal, controlled backswing and feel the required distance between your grip and trail shoulder
    • During your backswing, notice how your hip flexors activate to keep you in a balanced position
      • If you struggle to maintain balance, try taking the club back at a slower place
  • Allow the Orange Whip or club to unwind on the downswing while maintaining your balance on the disks
  • Repeat until you can swing smoothly without falling!

    Frankly, this video sounds like a great way to swing if you played on balance disks. I doubt this would have any positive effect, and might screw up your swing. Kind of like swinging with a too heavy a baseball bat. Keep hip flexors engaged? Doesn’t that mean pull your knees and hips to chest? Sorry, this makes no sense.
