- With 80% of your weight on the left side, try to create a golf swing with your left arm - no golf club in your hand. The goal is to keep your elbow facing down the target line as long as possible
- As your practice swing is hitting the impact zone, allow your wrists to rotate and focus on making both your elbow and your wrist aimed down the target line.
- Do the first 150 golf swing reps with no club in your hand.
- Once you add in the club, this drill works best with an impact bag. Try to continue your practice swing adding in some weight shift and engrain the feeling of elbow and wrist moving down the target line.
Once you become proficient with the wrist guiding the golf club and rotating at impact, you will be able to increase your accuracy and elminate the harsh elbow positions that plague ameteur golfers.
