    I've never used this drill, but what he's saying is really what I'm always to trying to do. I'm a big swayer and I did enjoy hearing some of the reasons bad things happen when I do it. I like the way he sets up.

    The big thing in that video and important point is a consistent set up, like he talks about. I know I don't always set up to the driver in the same way and this is a good way to be consistent.

    A couple of guys were in the club house talking about their slice a few days ago and I mentioned seeing this video and how it works. I've never tried the setup, but they were pretty interested and both were heading out to play. They came in later thanking me for the suggestion, lol. Both said it helped the slice and they made better contact. One actually hit all but one fw on the round, said that was a first ever for him.

    Now I want to get out there and try this.

    I did this yesterday and just WOW! I hit more fairways than I ever have. The great thing about it is that it is very consistent and helps take away one less thing to think about on the tee.

    This video is awesome, I'm never in a different position when I hit my driver anymore, one thing I wish he would have talked about more was release, the head pro at my course taught me that the longer the club is the earlier I must release it and my drives since have turned from a nasty slice to a nice little draw (without draw configuration). But most importantly the ball position setup that he taught really changed my game!

    I don't usually have a slicing problem but I tend to fade. I tried this out today and I actually hit the ball pretty consistently all day, one drive OB but that was mainly because I should have hit a long iron or hybrid and I tried to crush it on a short par 4. I actually really like the fact that it gives you a way to repeat the same stance drive after drive and it made me feel more confident over the ball.

    That same video helped me tremendously when I started back last year. I had quit due in large part to banana ball drives. No more except on rare occasions due to hard overswinging.

    Visualizing hitting that spot behind the ball effectively turns your stance the way it needs to be turned at setup with your front shoulder slightly closer to the ball. The result is a stronger setup and better, more square, contact through the ball.

    This is the way I was taught to set up to the driver each time. I wonder the my instructor at the time watched this video heh.

    I do like the consistent setup but there are two points of caution
    1: If you already hit a high ball, this will push it up even further. I've had to drop the loft on my driver since I was adding 3 to 4 degrees of upwards loft with this.
    2: If you sway or hip bump with the driver like I do, the rest of the setup is going to do jack squat for you other then put your slice in roughly the same area.

    Thanks for posting. I'll give it a try. I've stayed away from the driver the last few rounds.

    Is this why I keep slicing?? Not real bad but enough to be behind trees and in the rough on the right - I do like this set up position though- ball height not really noticeably different maybe better which for me would mean higher

    I've continued setting up this way, and it's becoming second nature now.

    I took some tips from this video, and modified it a bit to fit my setup. I really like the consistent set up/pre shot routine when it comes to hitting the driver, and this is working out well for me. I had some great drives today, and only really started to hit a slice when I was dog tired (which was around hole 32ish).

    Probably one of the best days I have had with my driver in quite a while, actually.

    Took this to the range today (playing tomorrow morning) and was VERY impressed with the results. Longest, straightest drives I've hit in a long time. I actually took my R9 back to neutral after the first couple of times trying it(which used to produce a massive slice) and was hitting it straight and where I aimed!

    I have been really bad about slicing or pulling driver shots lately, so it helped me tremendously. I was just about ready to take the driver out of the bag! Thank you for posting this.
