Tom’s Bonus Tip:
Tighten Up

For the sake of simplicity, all advice on swings and drills is provided from a right handed perspective; lefties …. well, you know what to do!

I recently gave a driver swing lesson to a good young golfer.

His swing pattern looked pretty good, but the ball just didn’t seem to be flighting as well as it should for the swing he was putting on the ball, and it didn’t sound quite right at impact.

After observing about ten swings, I checked the face for center contact, and all the swings were on the sweet spot. I then asked him if he had tightened up his adjustable driver lately, and he . said that he hadn’t tightened it up since he set it up – way back when.

We broke out the wrench and sure enough, the loft adjustment screw needed to be tightened, and the rest of the screws also needed to be torqued.

After we tightened everything up, the strike sounded right and the ball reacted like it should for the good swings that were being executed.

If you swing an adjustable driver, tighten it up every time before you use it.

Love your practice, enjoy your golf,
