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.
