On Wednesday I met up with Steve Allen who was looking for a new driver.
As always, we start this process by hitting a number of shots with the driver currently in the bag. A dozen shots later and only one or two finding the fairway with misses both left and right, it was time discuss our options!
1) Buy a new driver and that will make all the difference - NO!
2) Look at technique before investing in a new driver - YES YES YES!
With option 2 chosen, I spoke about the importance of angle of attack when hitting driver. Steve set up to hit driver in great position but I found that he was very steep into impact due to the narrow nature of his swing arc. This was caused by excessive wrist cocking. What followed was very interesting for us both.
I requested that Steve made some swings with a feeling of shortness to the swing length and as little wrist hinge in the backswing as possible. Note - obviously this would not be an ideal action for swinging a club but it was a feeling needed to enhance Steve's swing.
If Steve carried out the task correctly, the club would hardly reach half way back. However within the game of golf, often what we think we are doing versus what we actually do are often very different.
When I showed Steve a video of his efforts, he was amazed and could not believe what he saw! Steve felt like he had lost 50% of his swing speed but in fact Flighscope told us that he had lost 2mph. Steve thought he was swinging back to around waist height but in fact his top of swing position was now ideal.
More importantly, Steve's ball hit 4 of 4 fairways and travelled equal distance to before. Outcome - Steve needed swing help not a new driver and as his professional I was able to advise that and save him money! Another happy customer who took professional advice from his pro!
Well done Steve!
