My Personal Notes for You
The following are a few helpful notes that I gleaned from helping others increase their speed with this sequence of movements while coaching them in person or online. Hope it helps!
Be AGGRESSIVE - If you’ve never had the speed you know you should, use this drill to start firing up your inner caveman. Don’t be gentle with this. You don’t need to swing “hard”, just FAST. Sling the club into the back of the impact bag and don’t hold back.
If You’re Over the Top - EXAGGERATE the release out to 2 o’clock. What feels on plane to you will likely still be steep because that’s simply what your body is used to and feels “normal”. Video yourself - the club should be going right through your forearm as I demonstrated in the video.
Didn’t Pick Up Speed? - Check the basics. The most common issue is golfers trying to use their shoulders to “heave” the club at the ball. This doesn’t work! Do you heave your shoulders and head forward when throwing a ball? This goes back to “dragging” the club through impact - feels powerful, but it’s not. If you're trying to produce speed in your swing solely with your lead arm, you'll need to FEEL 100% trail arm for a while to "wake" it up - don't be afraid to do this. Focus on your work with the impact bag for a few days, being assertive and slinging that club into the bag. Get the arm to fully extend into the bag just after impact while your shoulders are still square - this is a big KEY to speed. Lastly, this is NOT a mechanical drill. So, free yourself up to swing. Don't be all bound up trying to make your arm go somewhere at the top of the swing. Think THROW and forget about everything else for now.
