An Old Johnny Miller Drill for More Clubhead Speed

Wow, this is some old video footage! Here's Johnny Miller demonstrating what he calls "two secret positions that every Tour pro knows." What he's talking about is how your wrists uncock at impact to create clubhead speed. Then he shows footage of Jack Nicklaus doing it when he hits the ball.

The drill is simple, so simple that you might be inclined to ignore it. Don't -- it will help you more than you know.

In many ways this is no different from some of my old Route 67 posts about "the swoosh at the bottom." (You can find those posts by clicking the Route 67 Posts button just under the header, if you're interested.)

This drill exaggerates the movement a bit because a short swing requires more effort to uncock your wrists at impact than a full swing does. But if you practice this drill using a short swing, you'll find it's much easier to do it with a full swing. Plus you can do it in your backyard, using tees as targets instead of balls to help you get familiar with the move before you take it to the range.

And for you Michael Breed fans, it will help you get that delayed swooshing noise just past the ball that he keeps trying to teach you.
