‘Build from the ground up to hit powerful fairway woods’
Everyone knows that I use my 3-wood off the tee a lot more than most other players. I’m more confident and consistent taking this approach, although I can still get the driver out there if I feel I need to. Taking this approach has seen me rank inside the top 15 on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy for the last four seasons and I still average over 290 yards off the tee. I’m able to do this by building an efficient technique that builds power from the ground up and enables me to deliver the clubhead with precision and consistency. These tips will help you improve your swing whatever club you use.
ADDRESS Build from the ground I’m trying to bend from the hips and get in a nice athletic position – knees slightly bent, feet just past shoulder width, front toe slightly open. I build my swing from the ground up so I can engage my core and quads. Then I just let my arms hang from there. AT THE TOP Wind up like a spiral staircase A lot of people use turn to find position at the top but that’s inconsistent. If I’m loading everything into my shoulders, like I am here, I like to picture a spiral staircase. You’ll notice both my feet are still planted firmly, which helps promote that proper building from the ground up.
