FOCUS ON A SMOOTH TRANSITION TO DELIVER THE POWER
Handicap golfers often have the worst tempo with the driver because they’re so desperate to swing the club hard and smash the ball a long way that they snatch at the changes of direction as they start the takeaway and in the transition into the downswing. This will rob you of speed and control, but a smooth tempo will help you build maximum speed and deliver it how you want to. Move the clubhead away slowly and make a smooth move to the top. Once there, feel like you pause for a second before beginning your transition. You won’t really stop but it will help you set the club properly before smoothly accelerating into impact.
Connected right elbow Keeping your right elbow tucked in close to your side in your downswing prevents the club from coming ‘over the top’ and helps you attack the ball from the inside.
