In this how to hit driver tip, I talk about separation. This is what separates pros from amateurs. I say this becuase pros have it while amateurs do not. This means you really should be working on this and incorporating it into your golf swing if you want to hit the ball like a pro.
So what is separation? This is the ability to separate your lower body from your upper body. In a better player’s swing, they fire the lower body first from the top of the backswing while the arms follow. In doing so this creates a faster release of the club in the downswing.
Most amateur players, start down with the arms. In doing so, the upper and lower body are almost match up as they hit the ball. In other words there is little to no separation.
Take a look at this tip. Understand separation and start working on this drill. If you want it, you need to work on it. Once you get it, you will never want to stop doing it. It will literally allow you to hit the ball longer than ever before.
