    part 6 driver 1

    Golf’s moment of truth. If your grip, setup, takeaway, backswing and downswing are in order, here’s what happens as the driver contacts the ball:

  • The right hand and forearm roll over the left; this action is called the release.

  • On impact, the hands are even with or ever-so-slightly behind the ball.

  • The clubhead strikes the ball a fraction past the bottom of the swing’s arc (on the upswing). 

  • Your right knee points inward, at the target.

  • The left hip has “cleared,” i.e. rotated left of the target, with the right hip coming around toward the ball.

  • The shoulders are square to the target line, your weight evenly balanced on both feet.
