Skill Drills with Meredith Kirk: Driver Swing Tempo

Today I’m going to give you a drill on swing tempo with your driver. Now, for those of you that have a tendency to swing too fast, this drill is for you. What we’re going to do is we’re going to go ahead and get in the setup position with your driver, and we’re going to count one, two, three to the top; we’re going to hesitate, and then we’re going to swing through the shot. Okay? We’re going to slow things down a little bit. So I’m going to go ahead, set up to a ball, and give it a swing, and I want you to watch the difference with this. Watch how much slower I will swing doing this drill. And I hit it perfect. That was great. So that just proves that you want to have a slower backswing. Three to one ratio. So let’s slow things down a little bit. Let’s create a great tempo with your driver. One, two, three, pause at the top, and swing through the shot. There you go.
