    That is a brilliant tip and makes me wonder if that may be central to my problem with my swing right now. Next practise I will certainly pay attention to it.

    I have many problems with a 5 Fairway Wood Hitting off the Fairway. It seems the most tricky club to get right, it seems to have such a snall margin for error.

    Do you any tips for a 5 Fairway Wood Hitting off the Fairway? I am really struggling with this club to get more than 2 or 3 shots in 8 good,

    Best regards

    Thanks for this drill Paul. I suffer from a flying right elbow at the top of my back swing so hopefully this drill will help me Pete has a video of my swing if you want to take a look. I look forward to you tips every day

      Glad you liked it. This drill should definitely help. Just got to do it as much as you can.

    Just tried this with my indoor club (I have a cut down club I swing inside) and by doing this I could feel an insane tightness in my upper body. Great tip!
    I know this is just a drill, but while hitting balls I struggle sometimes to feel that tightness. Could this “back elbow down” be an ok backswing thought? Obv still go through to the top of the backswing but feels like it will help with connection.

      Sure you can think of it when hitting. The idea is though to do it enough where you don’t have to think about it. This one shoudln’t take that long to master.
