The driver swing speed drill is easy to set up and provides instant visual and kinetic feedback.  Simply follow the set-up instructions and allow yourself sufficient time to practice.


Set up the drill by:

  • Then place 4 tee pegs into the ground in line with the tour stick. This will make sure that your stance and ball position are correct
  • Place a ball on the last tee peg


Complete the Drill


  • Starting off on the first tee peg, go through your shot routine but on swing the club a 50% of your max speed
  • The second peg 60%
