There really is a difference between a III Wood and your Driver! Think about your ‘5 Set-Ups’ … Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment. This simplicity will cover the bases if you simply use your check list and Pre Shot Routine (PSR)! You shall be able and need to ‘Set Up For Success’! To tackle this subject, all you really have to do is read your ‘555 Driver Protocols’ and compare them with your ‘Long-Shafted Full Swing Protocols’ … meaning ‘Off The Deck and not Teed Up’.
A Dr. Fischer bone of contention is the statement you hear all too often … “You Do Not Hit Down On The Ball”! Think about your ‘Not Teed Up Long-Shafted Full Swing Protocols’. You sure as heck do not swing ‘Up Hill’ at this ‘Little White Ball’. Are you nuts?
At the ‘Top Of Your Back & Up Swing’ (TOB), your Clubhead is UP! I know that sounds foolish, but the answer will not! If you are up at TOB, you must reflexively get ‘Back Down’ to the ‘Ball Location’ which is hopefully properly placed in the Front Swing. Right?
