Drill to Improve Footwork and Balance

This is 9 year old Aiden Moore and he was having balance issues in his golf swing.  In particular, he was allowing his left foot to spin out causing him to fall forward to his toes after impact.

To help eliminate this issue, I teed up a golf ball just outside his left foot.  In addition I placed an alignment rod just outside his toes.  Aiden was to imagine he was standing near the edge of a swimming pool and the rod was the edge.  In this drill, he used a 7 iron and the goal was to make a swing and avoid bumping the ball off the tee by his foot and not take a dive into the pool.

Mission accomplished!
