Mike Malaska on Creating Driver Speed (Video)

In this short video Mike Malaska teaches you the basic "feel" for creating a speedy driver swing. Much of this you've heard before while some may be new to you.

But part of the key to using this "feel" is to avoid the temptation of just hitting positions. Watch the video and try to imagine how the swing feels. Focus on making this free-swinging motion with as little tension as possible to get the most good from it.

Part of the key is avoiding another temptation -- that is, over-emphasizing the motion while you swing. Most of us don't realize how much we exaggerate moves when we try to copy them. Your goal is to make the swing as economically as possible, avoiding big bends in your knees or moving too far from side-to-side when transitioning from backswing to downswing.

What you're after is a motion that feels as easy as turning from side-to-side while holding a tray of food at a party -- it gets the job done without slinging food and drinks everywhere. When you get that feel, you'll find it much easier to make consistent contact.

And consistent contact -- or, if you prefer, smash factor -- is the biggest factor in hitting it long.
