Delivery Pump Drill - Driver Transition Training

A great way to practice coming from the inside. Changing a movement is scary, and just like any other scary change, you can do it before your ready. Like counting to 3 and then jumping, you can pump down a couple times, and then swing from a place that you are not used to and see what happens.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,000
The drill is delivery pump for the driver.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:09,000
So the delivery pump is one of the kind of key transition drills, which is basically working

00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:13,000
on the timing of all these different movements.

00:00:13,000 --> 00:00:18,000
So you go up to the top of your swing and then you're going to pump down into where you

00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:20,000
think a very good delivery position would be.

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:26,000
So that should have a combination of the Jackson 5 movement, the chest getting a little

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:29,000
closer or about left-hill and the arm shallowing.

00:00:29,000 --> 00:00:35,000
Now with the driver, what's important is that during this little pump movement, my upper

00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:40,000
body wall is getting slightly closer to the ground is not getting too much on top of the

00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:41,000
golf ball.

00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:46,000
If my upper body gets on top of the golf ball, it's going to take a major movement during

00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:51,000
the release that's going to make timing and contact really, really challenging.

00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:52,000
So it's the same drill.

00:00:52,000 --> 00:00:56,000
I'm just going to pump it a few times.

00:00:56,000 --> 00:00:59,000
So I'm going to practice this delivery position where my upper body is behind.

00:00:59,000 --> 00:01:03,000
I'm going to try to make this my goal as far as pumping.

00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:09,000
So I'm going to take a little snapshot and I'm going to go pump one to there, pump two

00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:14,000
to there, and then three I'm going to swing through.

00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:21,000
So you can use this pump movement to kind of work on the timing of when your arms get

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:22,000

00:01:22,000 --> 00:01:26,000
So on the timing or the position of your upper body being more behind the golf ball,

00:01:26,000 --> 00:01:31,000
remember if you are behind the golf ball and you tend to flare it off to the right, means

00:01:31,000 --> 00:01:36,000
that you're probably not getting the club face closed or in an attempt to stay behind

00:01:36,000 --> 00:01:40,000
the golf ball, your path is getting too much outside in.

00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:45,000
So from now on the line that would look, if the club face is open, I'm coming from the

00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:51,000
inside, that would be more of kind of a high push where oftentimes trying to stay back,

00:01:51,000 --> 00:01:55,000
all end up spinning and kind of looking like this, and that one would be more of that

00:01:55,000 --> 00:01:57,000
classic slice.

00:01:57,000 --> 00:02:04,000
So we'll do one more, we're going to get into this good delivery pump position.

00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:09,000
So that's essentially where I'm trying in my mind to target and then from there I would

00:02:09,000 --> 00:02:11,000
just have to do the bracing and good release.

00:02:11,000 --> 00:02:18,000
So I'm going to go pump one, pump two, pump three.

00:02:18,000 --> 00:02:21,000
So very acceptable ball flight.

00:02:21,000 --> 00:02:23,000
Pump drills are actually one of my challenging.

00:02:23,000 --> 00:02:28,000
I do much better with the broken transition, but for a lot of more rhythmic golfers, you're

00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:32,000
going to feel that the pump drill frees up the timing and helps you understand exactly

00:02:32,000 --> 00:02:34,000
when you want your arms to get more involved.
