Stand in a tallish golf posture with limited wrist hinge at address.
Take a backswing and stay very tall to the top with little to no hinge in the wrists. Think simple motion, simple results. Think Bryson DeChambeau or Moe Norman!
Into the downswing, compress down into the ground and sink your spikes into the earth, trying to get the handle as low and as close to your right pocket, zipper, and left pocket through the strike.
Finish in balance!
The reason this drill is so effective is that it relies on body rotation and centrifugal to send the club around an arc. A lot of toe hits and toe shanks are due to a a high handle, and this drill works to clean that up pronto!
Let me know how it works for you!
