Driver Speed Training

All the information about the swing speed training programme is collected together on this page. There are the written instructions explaining the programme as well as the videos. Remember the first 4 weeks is using the introductory programme and the last two using level 1

Before you start! – Please remember to warm-up before working through any training protocol. If you at any time feel pain or discomfort, stop immediately and consult your medical professional. Always swing your driver in a safe environment and toward the driving range or hitting net. Do not hit the ground or try to hit a golf ball. When swinging, it’s recommended to keep the head of the club about 6 to 8 inches above the ground through the bottom of the swing arc.

 
 

Introductory Training

This method of training should be followed between week 1 - 4 (8th January - 4th February) three times a week. Then the level 1 training protocol should be used until the 18th February

 

 

Introductory Protocol: 

Before you start! – Please remember to warm-up before working through this training protocol. If you at any time feel pain or discomfort, stop immediately and consult your medical professional. Always swing your driver in a safe environment and toward the driving range or hitting net. Do not hit the ground or try to hit a golf ball. When swinging, it’s recommended to keep the head of the club about 6 to 8 inches above the ground through the bottom of the swing arc.

During this protocol you are going to make swings in two different drill positions, Standing, and Step-Change of Direction.

Starting in the Standing position on your dominant side, take THREE swings as aggressively as possible. Next, swap the direction of the swings to the non-dominant side. Make sure to switch your grip and swing direction. Take THREE swings in this direction.

REPEAT THIS SAME PROCESS TWICE MORE.

Now move on to the Step-change of direction position. For this position, start with the normal golf stance and then move the lead foot back toward the trail foot so that the feet are touching. Make a swing stepping the lead foot forward as the club is going back, plant the lead foot aggressively and then swing through. Take THREE swings as aggressively as possible in the dominant direction. Next, swap the direction of the swings to the non-dominant side. Make sure to switch your grip and swinging direction. Take THREE more swings in this direction.

REPEAT THIS SAME PROCESS TWICE MORE.

Finally, finish the protocol with THREE more swings in Standing position on your dominant side. Always stay aggressive and unleash your speed!
