If you struggle with shifting your weight, try the “four-step drill” I learned from Jim Flick. Do it slowly, making each step separate.
First, set up as usual. Then hinge the club up with your wrists and set it on your right shoulder, while keeping your arms relaxed and staying in your posture. Then—and this is the key step—keep the club on your shoulder and turn back so your left shoulder is over and inside your right knee. After that, simply lift the club off your shoulder and you’ll be in a perfect position at the top of your swing. Now let your arms and the club swing down and let your body react to the swinging of the club. The club will fall to the inside of the target line, the clubface will square up, and you’ll draw the ball.
RIGHT ARM TOO HIGH
To get your right forearm in the proper parallel position, it has to be relaxed. Also consider strengthening your grip by rotating your right hand to the right so your right elbow points toward your right hip. When that happens, you’ll know that your arms are in a good setup position. From there, you can start off your swing on the correct path.
