Dru Love was still able to do one drill while his broken right wrist was healing earlier this year. It was passed down through the generations, from his late grandfather, the famed instructor, to his dad, the major champion and future World Golf Hall of Famer.

Dru hit balls with only his left hand, a drill that ingrains the proper impact position. His father, Davis Love III, used to hit buckets of balls a day this way while watching his father, Davis Love Jr., give lessons.
