Martin Hall's Anti-Chicken Wing Drill

Martin Hall calls this a backswing drill but it's better termed a followthrough drill. It'll help you get rid of the tendency to "chicken wing" your finish. Best of all, you don't need to use a club!

It's simple enough. By letting your trailing hand stretch out your lead arm, your lead elbow will automatically point toward the ground during impact. Chicken wings happen when your lead elbow points more toward the target.

You can use this drill anywhere since you don't have to use a club. As an added bonus, it'll also teach you to create a wider arc in your swing, which should help you get more distance. Give it a try!
