9 To 3 Four Square - Driver Impact Path Training

Use tees to create a grid, which will serve as a training aid for seeing the path of the club through impact. Staying in the odd boxes will help you have an inside out and shallow path, and staying in the even numbers will heal you have an outside in and steep path. Use this drill to fine-tune your body's movements and how it affects your path.

The drill is 9 to 3, 4 square for the driver.

00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:09,000
So I've got my 4 square grid set up hopefully we can see it all indicated on the camera

00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:10,000
if I can't.

00:00:10,000 --> 00:00:15,000
But basically you've got two T's going in your target line and then you've got two T's

00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:22,000
perpendicular and just remember that with the driver my goal is going to be swinging even

00:00:22,000 --> 00:00:30,000
more into out or going from the box closest to me box one to box three.

00:00:30,000 --> 00:00:35,000
Where I'm going to tend to hit more fades and I'm going to tend to have a steeper angle

00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:40,000
of attack if the club is going from box two to four.

00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:46,000
So you can do 9 to 3 drills working on the release working on that extension position

00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:52,000
and working on those follow through checkpoints even with the driver it's just a little

00:00:52,000 --> 00:00:54,000
bit more of a hassle because you have to tee it up each time.

00:00:54,000 --> 00:01:00,000
Just remember if I'm pacing remember that the biggest difference is even with these short

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:03,000
little shots if I'm demonstrating driver I want to make sure that that upper body is

00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:08,000
behind the lower body and I'm in that good kind of side tilt as I'm racing.

00:01:08,000 --> 00:01:16,000
So it ends up looking kind of something like that if I'm doing the 9 to 3 version get

00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:22,000
good extension good path and go from more inside to more outside one of the keys for the driver.
