The Two-Iron Warm-Up Drill:

All you need for this golf practice drill are two irons - we suggest using a seven and an eight iron. Follow these easy steps to optimize your warm-up and backswing:

  1. Start by holding the two golf clubs in front of you at hip height.
  2. Gently rock the clubs back and forth, building a steady tempo.
  3. As you gain confidence in your tempo, transition into your backswing.
  4. Find the ideal position at the top of your backswing while maintaining your tempo.

This two-iron drill is effective for various reasons:

  • Motion creates motion: By keeping the clubs in constant motion, you'll develop a smooth backswing that leads to a more consistent swing.
  • Tempo improvement: Struggling with tempo during your golf practice sessions? This drill helps you groove a consistent tempo, which can be carried over into your actual swings.
  • Pre-round warm-up: Even if you can't hit golf balls before your round, this drill is perfect for getting your swing warmed up and ready to go.
  • Backswing guidance: Having trouble knowing where your club should be at the top of your backswing? This drill assists in finding the ideal position.
