Drive the downswing by extending the trail elbow with forearm pronation

January 24, 2024- by Steven E. Greer

I have talked many times about the need to extend the trail elbow in the downswing. I now view it as the key mental image to drive the swing. It has to be done along with a pronation twist of the forearm.

This will feel very weird at first. I show you how to do drills to start to feel this.

Warren Bottke, the coach of Brooks Koepka when he was a kid, describes this as his piston move. I never understood how to do it that way.

Of note, Rory McIlroy, below, and many others use this same feel.
