          GOLF TIPS - WEdnesday, April 2, 2008
 "Tips... News... And More... All For The Love Of The Game"

Fellow Duffers,

My foursome called me on Sunday and asked if I wanted to play.
I looked outside and it was raining. I looked up the temp and it
was 40 degrees. They told me it was cart path only.

I said, "Absolutely."

I had a marvelous time--even though I lost most of the skins.

It was due to my driving. I was erratic and felt like I was
swinging out of my shoes most of the time. I need to get to the

Drills to help you drive better

By Dan Polites, PGA Professional - PGA.com

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."

Driver Drills

Try this: Lighten your grip pressure to a 5 or a 6 on a scale of
1-10, with 10 being the tightest. On your backswing, cock your
hands so that the toe of the club face points directly to the
sky at hip level during the backswing. Keep your transition
smooth at the top of your swing and rotate your hands from the
right hip on the downswing through the hitting area. Your right
hand should turn over your left hand and allow the toe of the
clubface to point directly to the sky after impact. As you
release or rotate your hands through the hitting area, make sure
you tuck your left elbow into your left side through the hitting
area so you can square up the clubface at impact.

Another swing thought is to have your backswing at a slower
speed than your forward swing -- with your maximum speed
obviously being through the impact area. So many players waste
their maximum speed on the backswing. Your overall tempo on
the downswing should be between 70-80 percent of your full
power -- this speed will increase your chances of better ball

You'll spend hours trying to figure out how it works!

Follow through drill

Hit balls or take practice swings where you concentrate on
completing your swing so that your body faces the target on the
follow through. Your hands should finish high -- up and around
behind your head.

Also have your right foot up on the follow through so that you
may tap it on the ground. This will ensure your completion of
the follow through and weight transfer. I also have many of my
students, especially juniors, hold their follow through for
three seconds. The follow through is one of the most neglected
areas of the golf swing. When you focus on swinging through
the hitting area and completing the swing, your golf shots will
improve dramatically.
