Let’s talk about three simple drills to fix your leg work. In this video, I’m focusing on how the right leg works during your downswing.

The first drill is more of a concept that I want you to play around with and it’s how your foot grips or uses the ground. When I see a leg work that goes too far forward or caves in too much, you’re gripping the ground counter clockwise, which is your right foot is basically doing a kind of spin out move. It creates that overly bent position and the inward knee versus having it gripping the ground clockwise.

Chris Como talks about the idea of gripping the ground clockwise before you throw a punch which is perfect. It’s exactly what I see good players do. If I feel like I’m gripping the ground and pushing it clockwise with my right foot, it keeps my trail leg in external rotation and then it’s easier for me to straighten up and get rid of that sloppy leg action. So, part number one is just playing around with that feeling like my foot is gripping it clockwise and right leg is going external.

The second drill for the right leg is to have an object in front of your right knee and your right leg. The fault or the bad movement is the pressure going too far towards the toes, the knee kicking in, and the hips kicking in. If I do that in this drill, my right knee will run into the pool noodle I’ve set up in front of my right leg. The idea being from the top, like I mentioned earlier, kind of gripping the ground clockwise, keeping the knee inside of the object as I work down and then gradually maintaining some depth and having my leg turning inside of that object.

The last drill for the leg work is an oldie but a goodie. When I take my normal setup, I take a sand wedge and I put that club right underneath my heel on my right foot. If I have that normal motion with the right leg getting sloppy during the downswing – pressure goes towards the toes – the club is going to pop out early during my downswing.

When I practice, I put it underneath my foot and I’m going to go ahead and make some swings and what I want to have happen is I want to keep that club in there until I get past impact – that means part of my heel is still going to be on the ground.

So that’s three drills for you guys to fix the leg work. We talk a lot about the left leg and rotation, but you can get a lot of that counter motion with the right leg. Hope that all makes sense! . If you guys have any questions, leave a comment down below.

Carlos Valderaduey says:

Eric you are a real master!. The third drill for me is magic. I tend to come from outside and it is because I focus myself in moving the right feet. The key is trying to get both feet on the ground through the impact an the third drill helps enormously. Thanks Master!

Dan Rath says:

Regarding tip one, gripping the ground and clockwise foot turn. Are you speaking almost exclusively on downswing? Or is it equal going back as well as coming down, the pressure that is.

Pascal Boustingorry says:

Man, couldn’t help stopping the video and comment: your first drill of foot gripping clockwise is something I had never heard before, and yet makes much sense! (Don’t have access to lessons with Chris Como, lol). I’m amazed how you always come up with something both practical and original. I’ve had some eye openings and eyebrow raisings since I’ve been following your channel.

Now I’ll tap the play icon and watch the rest…

sabr686 says:

Really like the foot-grip sensation you described. Personally, I need to overemphasize my lower body movement, and this drill helps with that. Thanks!

Strong glutes = better golf swing

Love your videos, wish I was nearby to have a lesson with you!

Can you provide a discount code for Mke Bender's shaft holder?

EC, aka E to da C, aka EC Da Golfessor aka EC Da Golf Pimp, aka Big Bad Ballin Azz Eric C Da MF'n Golf Pimp, once again blessing his young, not yet worthy, golf jedi in training like Yoda did Luke. Except EC comes across so clear, so concise, so understandable, unlike Yo-dawg. With the magical help of the amazing sweet sweet Mary, Cogorno Golf is about blow y'all and we iz all witnesses. Another G video from Team Cogorno, muchos gracias carnal.

TJ Stenger says:

I’ve never thought of it like that. When I would pitch in baseball I would feel that clockwise move against the mound. If it wasn’t raining I’d be out there today trying this. Thank you!

brian menendez says:

the other day i practiced hitting some wedge shots keeping my weight on my heels mostly and I hit 6 balls dead solid.

What part of America are you based.

John Hue says:

Eric, What are your thoughts on Kelvin's marching move? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWdad1CN23E JB Holmes raises the right knee but keeps depth with the right butt cheak back. What you are demonstrating here is more in line with what Cameron Champ does. Can you do the left leg in your next video g, how you get pressure in it and how it works through impact. Thanks

Steve DeSanto says:

Eric – I have had sloppy leg work – hopefully these drills will help me. My left foot even moves too much at or after impact. Thanks!

pacypacman says:

JT can in someway get it around with his footwork!
