LET THE ARMS LEAD
When my driving is off, it’s usually because my lower body has unwound much faster than my upper body. When that happens, I have to use my hands to try to save the shot, which costs distance and accuracy. How you start down is crucial. While keeping your feet anchored to the ground, let your arms and club start to drop before unwinding. This helps sling the club faster through the impact zone. You’ll start hitting it further without any extra effort. Remember, you’re not trying to attack the ball. You’re trying to launch it.
