Driving Drills

Whoosh Drill

The Whoosh Drill helps train you to build acceleration gradually in your downswing and increasing your club speed through the ball and up into your finish to maximize your distance.

Swing Path Drill

The Swing Path Drill helps teach you to attack the ball from the inside to launch the ball nice and high which will help you if you are struggling with your drives due to a steep angle of attack.

Stability Ball Drill

The Stability Ball Drill helps you develop tension and a tight coil which will allow you to maximize the distance on your drives.

One Foot Drill

The One Foot Drill helps you maximize power on your drives by making sure you properly load weight to your back foot and strike the ball with an upward angle of attack.

Kinematic Sequence Drill

The Kinematic Sequence Drill helps make sure you are firing your body parts in the proper sequence in your golf swing to maximize power.

Hitting off Knees Drill

Hitting off Knees Drill can help if you are having problems with your angle of attack and either coming in too steep on your drives or coming in too shallow from the inside.

Swing Extension Drill

The Swing Extension Drill helps to make sure you are creating a big, wide arc with your arms on your back swing to increase power with your drives.

Baseball Bat Drill

The Baseball Bat Drill is a great drill to help you increase your power and strength on your drives and to also address problems with coming in too steeply when using your driver.
