First grab a medium size bath towel, then twirl it up a little and while choking down a bit on one end… put on your best golf grip. Now slide your bottom hand down the towel to separate your hands about 6 to 8 inches and get into a good golf posture with both your arms extended down and out in front of you with the section of towel between your hands parallel to your target line. From here make a good turn into your backswing keeping your target arm extended and hold at the top allowing the towel to flip up over your shoulder. As you rotate to the top you should feel that it is the upper body pulling the lower body into the backswing. As you arrive at the top you should feel fully coiled and ready to rotate. Now from the top let go of your trail hand and ‘leading with the lower body’ allow your target side to pull the towel down whipping it through an imaginary ball position and through to a full finish.
This is a great weight transfer drill that can be done anywhere that you can find a towel and you should repeat this drill often to reinforce the upper body initiating the backswing and the lower body initiating the downswing.
Play well, Dave Lengyel
