Video Golf Tip | Downswing Practice
By Stan Sayers

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction for McGetrick Golf Academy and today we are going to talk about the downswing. Again our swing is a little under construction so we are going to go to work. As we set up we worked with the cone on the takeaway by just going over the top of it. Here we are going to feel like, not look like, but feel like a big loop and come down inside the cone so that we don't come over the top. We are not trying to come back over the top of the cone, we are trying to come inside the cone and approach into impact. This is how we can quite casting, quite the over the top motion and a few different things, but a good teaching aid because I can whack this thing all day long and it is not going to hurt me and it is not going to break, it can take a lot of punishment. On this side of the ball the way we measure it from here is the cone has to be where the black ferrel meets the hozzle, that is how I know how far to take it back. Then as I go over it I am going to work on swinging it down inside. It helps me we work on lag and creating lag so that I can create a good impact and not cast out and knock that cone over and it does not create any injuries if you hit the cone so it is a good drill. You can sit here and practice and have good feedback. That is how to work on your downswing.

The Divot Mat Golfers need to be consistent with where the bottom of their swing contacts the ground, which is why the feedback from your divots is so important to developing a sound golf swing
Downswing Practice With a traffic cone behind you practice your downswing trying to keep the club inside the cone to simulate the correct approach at impact, this will help eliminate casting, over the top and other downswing faults that create curved shots and an improper impact position
Stuck In A Fairway Divot If your ball is in a fairway divot you need to adjust your swing so that you hit the ball with a more descending blow
