wrap it up

Two more rea­sons I can out­drive many male pro-am part­ners is be­cause their tim­ing is off, and they don’t use their big mus­cles as well as they should. When I swing down, my left leg is locked and push­ing hard into the ground for lever­age to cre­ate more power. Also, my up­per body is al­most com­pletely be­hind the ball’s po­si­tion through im­pact. I’ve shifted my weight into the left leg (that’s why it’s straight), but I’m putting as much body weight into the hit as I can. I’m not re­ally swing­ing my fastest un­til the ball is struck. My swing speed is build­ing un­til then. That’s why the club is wrapped around me here. It’s from the mo­men­tum I gen­er­ated through ac­cel­er­a­tion. A lot of am­a­teurs look like they’re chop­ping at the ball with their hands and arms only.The driver is mov­ing too fast too soon in the down­swing and loses power be­fore the hit. In­stead, swing at a pace so your body ro­ta­tion can keep up with your arm swing. If you fin­ish com­pletely un­wound like I am here, you’re re­ally pow­er­ing through it.
