Golf Swing Towel Drill For Width and Consistency in Your Downswing

Improve your golf swing and your downswing with this practice drill You can also use this practice drill at home to improve your golf downswing. When a golf swing becomes too narrow it causes an arm action that is inconsistent and weak on power. But when there is consistent width, lag and shallowing during the downswing much more accurate and consistent contact occurs and this really simple golf swing drill with just a towel does that. You simply take a grip with a towel or ribbon in the right hand and place a normal grip o the golf club. With the left hand, you hold the other end of the towel and hold firm in the center of the sternum. You now are forced to keep constant tension and width as you make the backswing and downswing. Give this drill a try and really as bad weather happens it is great to use at home or on the practice range.

  1. Nice drill. I know the feeling of getting in too tight, it seems like control will be better with a compact swing but I find if I can extend my arms out that the swing is more fluid and the power is there once I get comfortable with the wider swing. I'll try the towel for some more reinforcement. Thanks.
