Golf Tips - Driver Drill

Hi fellow golfers! Came across this interesting article by Dan Polites, a PGA Professional, over at website. Enjoy this piece and keep working on that driver:

Hitting your driver well is a combination of physical skill, mental concentration and confidence. This is easier to obtain on the driving range, then move it to a non-competitive playing environment.

If you struggle as you continue, here are some tips for working on your driver:

1) Start with mini-swings and proceed to full swings when you begin making solid contact.

2) Hit balls with your feet together.

3) Take full swings at 50-percent power.

4) Concentrate on this counting sequence during your swing: 1-2 going back on the backswing and 3 on the downswing.

5) Concentrate on extending your clubhead down the target line with a high follow through position.

6) Keep your grip pressure light and body tension free both at address and during the swing.

7) Hit balls with your driver only to the 100-yard flag or marker, then 125 yards, then 150, then 175, gradually moving to a normal distance for your driver.

8) Swing thought: Tell yourself, "Swing through the ball" NOT "at the ball."
