- Slow Your Takeaway With A Headcover
When I start to hit the ball poorly with my driver, it's usually because I'm getting quick in the takeaway. By adding some weight to the clubhead for some practice swings--either by leaving the headcover on, as I am here, or by wrapping a towel around the head--you force yourself to be more deliberate at the start of the swing. When you take it off, the driver will move back in good sequence and on a better path. Plus, the club will feel much lighter and faster on the downswing, which is more than a small side benefit. I hit my longest drives when I feel loose, relaxed and unwinding smoothly through impact without a lot of effort.
