You ever watch Davis Love make a practice swing with his driver? Man, it's a full-on swing, just like the real thing, so the club makes a big whoosh at the bottom. I love that. I want to hear that noise in my head when I have to crank one off the tee. It's a great image for keeping a nice flow and getting the fast point of your swing at the ball. But don't get ahead of yourself: You can't create speed at impact if you haven't set it up in the backswing. I try to go back pretty slow, really wind up, and then get to my front side as fast as I can. To me, the golf swing is a big turn back and a big turn through, and the ball just gets in the way. Impact is a result, not a position.
