CREATE GOOD STABILITY
I can't think of many sports where you make an athletic move with your feet close together. That's why I like a nice, wide base. It keeps me balanced, which is a huge factor in driving. You can shift your weight and turn without losing your footing. One more thing: I hear people say to keep your grip light. My feeling is, you should keep your arms relaxed but still have a little tension in your hands. That allows you to feel athletic and powerful.
