How to Use the Weighted Golf Club
The weighted golf clubs are used by lots of pros and amateurs to train their muscles.
But there are few rules when using a weighted club. If you use it incorrectly, you won't get any results.
1) Swing slowly
Tiger Woods said when he swings a weighted club, he tries to swing slowly. He always warm up his muscle before swinging it.
You should do the same thing.
2) Swing at something
You won't actually hit the ball with a weight club. However, you need to swing at something that represents the ball.
Pick a spot or piece of grass or something and swing your club.
Always be aware of your ball position because without the ball position in mind, you will waste your time.
The swing path changes dramatically depending on your ball position. For more information about ball position, see Correct Ball Position for Driver, Iron and Wedge.
3) Spine Angle and Right Shoulder
When you swing a weighted club, try to set up as usual. You want to lower your right shoulder at address. This will tilt your spine little away from the target.
I see lots of amateurs swinging their weighted clubs with higher right shoulder at address. This will cause them to swing from outside to in.
So the more you practice with this type of faulty set up, the more you will tend to hit a slice with outside in swing.
