1. Fill the base with sand for added stability if desired and then assemble the Flex-Pole to the base by screwing the Flex-Pole to the base to a tight position. Do not over tighten. Place the Swing Path/ST on the grass (or mat) so that its base is flat and the Flex-Pole is standing straight upright.

2. Take a stance to the right of the base (left-handed golfers will be to the left of the base) and align your stance so that the Flex-Pole is about 1” to 1-1/2” behind your toe line. Note: Base will be out in front of this line - the Flex-Pole is what needs to be behind your toe line.

3. Set your irons or woods as you would to address a golf ball in your stance (Note: you do not actually have to hit a golf ball, especially when first starting to practice). Once set, push back with your left hand - keeping your wristed locked during your take away - and rotate the club back around your backswing.

4. Start your downswing, pulling down with your left hand leading, dropping your hips through, and focusing on a spot that will be the back of the ball. Come down on that spot, keeping your left shoulder back and letting the club hit down and through that spot, then throwing that club head down line to a target between 12:00/1:00. Finish your follow through swing high and back around your left shoulder over the Flex-Pole. If you hit the Flex-Pole you know that you rotated in an “arc across the ball,” throwing that club head to the 11:00/10:00 Target Zone, which is the WRONG SWING PATH! This will cause a Slice!

5. Repeat the above steps 2 through 4 at least 25 times every other day until you consistently avoid hitting the Flex Pole. Once you have the swing path down continue to practice to form good swing path muscle and mind memory.

Wood and Iron Swing Path Practice
1. Attach the Flex-Pole to the mat base by screwing the Flex-Pole bases to a tight position. Do not over tighten.

2. Select either an iron or a wood club, place your toes against the Toe Line for a squared stance, and set the club in the proper Strike Zone (Wood Strike Zone on top of mat, Iron Strike Zone above Toe Line).

3. Once set, push back with your left hand - keeping your wristed locked during your take away - and rotate your hips so that the club goes back around your backswing.

4. Start your downswing, pulling down with your left hand leading, dropping your hips through, and focusing on a spot that will be the back of the ball. Come down on that spot, keeping your left shoulder back and letting the club hit down and through that spot, then throwing that club head down line to a target between 12:00/1:00. Finish your follow through swing high and back around your left shoulder over the Flex-Pole. If you hit the Flex-Pole you know that you rotated in an “arc across the ball,” throwing that club head to the 11:00/10:00 Target Zone, which is the WRONG SWING PATH! This will cause a Slice!

5. Repeat the above steps 2 through 4 at least 25 times every other day until you consistently avoid hitting the Flex Pole. Once you have the swing path down continue to practice to form good swing path muscle and mind memory.

Chip/Pitch Practice
1. Place your heels against the Toe Line and set an iron (7, 8, 9, or wedge) in the Iron Strike Zone.

2. Lock your wrists (again you want to push back with your left hand - your right hand is only along for the ride!). Push the club straight back, staying in between the Strike Zone Lines. Keep your head and shoulders down, and focus on the spot where the back of the ball would be.

3. Pull back down to the spot that the ball would be, using a motion similar to that of sweeping the mat with a broom. Keep the sweeping stroke straight out and down the Strike Zone, keeping the club head inside the lines and straight out to the target.

4. Repeat this swing 25 times, every other day. Always concentrate on that sweeping motion, wrists stiff and club head staying between the Strike Zone Lines both back swing and through front swing for a straight pitch/chip shot. You may vary the strength and speed of your swings to simulate different lengths to the flag stick, and different lengths you want to carry the ball to your ball drop target. Additionally, practice the shot with an “open face” to pop the ball up and get less roll, and a “closed face” to get more roll on the ball after you hit your ball drop target.

4’ Putting Practice
The toughest putt for everyone to make is that 4’ and closer putt to save par - or at least a Bogey! We all feel great when we make that long putt, or nestle that long putt close, as we are not expected to make those long puts… but we all need to make those 4’ and closer puts, and that’s where the pressure comes from! Who hasn’t gotten the case of the “Yipps” on these putts... that nasty habit of either coming out-to-in with the putter and pulling the ball left, or going in-to-out and pushing the ball right. We have included a “4’ Putting Zone” on the Swing Path /ST Practice Mat just so you can practice this simple yet difficult stroke. We are not so much concerned with the roll/speed of the ball on this practice workout - but rather on keeping the putter face square on your putting stroke, both back and then through the stroke.

1. Stand over the Putting Zone and take your usual putting stance. Visualize a ball and set your putter between the Putter Zone lines.

2. Using your putting stroke (which should be stiff wrists and arms, only using your shoulders in a pendulum motion) take the putter back through the Putting Zone - keeping the putter face square to forward - and between the Putter Zone lines. Then swing back forward, again keeping the putter face square to forward and between the Putting Zone lines, ending with the face reaching out to the hole at the end of the 4’ run. 

3. Practice this stroke 25 times every other day - always keeping the putter face square and between the lines. You may vary the distance you take the putter back and forward and where you place the ball in your stance - forward of center for short putts, back of center for longer putts. Build muscle and mind memory of this putting stroke, so when you are on the green playing and these putts come up, in your “mind’s eye” you will see the Putting Zone lines on the green and strike the ball square and true!
