Basic Tips for More DRIVER Clubhead Speed
1. USE A WIDE, ATHLETIC
STANCE helps lateral hip thrust into the ball.
Imagine a high-speed track star starting at the blocks.
2. TAKE-AWAY SLOWLY
speed and momentum builds up gradually, then reaches peak speed at impact...
3. TURN YOUR BACK
until it faces the ball, eyes can barely see the ball at the top of
4. DON'T OVER-SWING THE
CLUB nothing but trouble if the club goes past
parallel at the top.
5. RETAIN YOUR COIL IN
DOWNSWING your back has to maintain its turn well
into the downswing, left arm stays over right foot.
6. MOVE BUTT END OF GRIP
PAST THE BALL opposite the inside of your left
thigh, then uncock your wrists fast.
7. RELEASE PAST YOUR BODY
right foot stays on the ground or only slightly up while the clubhead
catches up and releases, ie. fast-ball pitcher
8. HEAD STAYS BACK
behind the ball and over your right foot so that
the clubhead's angle of attack is level or slightly up through the ball.
9. WRAP AROUND FINISH
point the clubhead to the target in the finish for maximum range of
motion and unleashing all of that new clubhead speed!
10. TRAIN HARDER
run hills to build up quadriceps, swing weighted clubs, stretch everyday...the
combination of speed, strength and flexibility produces powerful movement.
laws of motion govern speed...1. Shorten radius for quicker acceleration
(impact) ...2. Wider arc for imparting greater momentum (backswing).
3. Centering weight for speed in rotation 4. Multiplying
speed by sequential but concurrently overlapping fulcrum movements
