Myview - Driver Vs Iron

Tags: Iron, Driver, Drill, Intermediate, Beginner

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:05,000
This my view is looking at the difference between the driver and the iron.

00:00:05,000 --> 00:00:11,000
So, I've got my driver and my seven iron.

00:00:11,000 --> 00:00:14,000
I've got my little visual impact station.

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:21,000
So, visual impact station, I basically have my target line perpendicular and roughly about

00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:23,000
middle or where I'm going to start my stance position.

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:26,000
Then we got a line about 45 and 45.

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:37,000
So, if I was to get into setup position with my seven iron, there you can see the body position just

00:00:37,000 --> 00:00:38,000
like so.

00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:43,000
Now, if I was to go through kind of a slow motion swing, you'll see that my upper body kind of

00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:50,000
stays on top of it and that release is going much more down into the ground than it is

00:00:50,000 --> 00:00:53,000
out towards the target.

00:00:53,000 --> 00:01:00,000
Now, if I was to do the same thing with the driver.

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:05,000
So, be together small step, big step, foot turn out.

00:01:05,000 --> 00:01:10,000
So, now, if I was to go up towards the top of the swing, come one down nice and slow.

00:01:10,000 --> 00:01:16,000
You can see that my upper body from my perspective feels like it's more over my right

00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:21,000
foot and looks well behind the ball even though it's coming in.

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:27,000
So, my release position and direction is going to be much more out towards the target than

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:29,000
with the iron down towards the ground.

00:01:29,000 --> 00:01:33,000
Even though I'm making roughly the same hand motions, the biggest difference is going to be the

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:38,000
location where my upper body or how this axis still has affected where my release is going to be.

00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:44,000
So, hopefully that helps you see how subtle it looks from the third person point of view

00:01:44,000 --> 00:01:48,000
but how drastically different it looks from that first person point of view.

00:01:48,000 --> 00:01:52,000
And if you're struggling with either your driver or the iron's because of this axis

00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:55,000
till hopefully this gives you a good view of what you should see.

00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:15,000
Thank you.
