Mike summarizes the driver series. He believes that you must have the proper grip, grip pressure, and tension to hit the driver well. This is key to making the Lever System work. Take the lever system you have learned from other sports and apply it.
Once you have the lever system working and you are relaxed, then the body comes into play. Make sure you have the correct posture and setup. When you move, you must have your joints lined up as bad posture locks up joints.
Next, focus on the Lever System, how your body moves and pushes away, and how you put all those motions together. It is essential to have the outer circle, or the swing of your golf club, working with your inner circle, which is your body turning. The key is to have them work in harmony, so they start to offset and balance each other. This will help to accelerate the driver. Making sure you have face control is vital. Getting the ball to curve, hook, fade, high and low will teach you better face control.
Have fun practicing different shots. It’s about creating speed and getting your hips out of the way to give you the freedom to swing big and up high. This allows you to create a strong downward force and pressure into the ground and through the ball.
Make sure you practice these drills one at a time and build a good foundation. Set up and practice swinging with your driver. You don’t have to hit it hard. Gradually add more speed as you get more confidence. Trying to hit the ball too hard straight away won’t help.
