How long is that driver? It looks like it's at least 48"....

Hmmm? What's this supposed to do?

If I measured it correctly, it's actually a half inch shorter than the standard 44. I'm 5' 10". Well, maybe add 1/2 inch.

With regards to the hovering, I find on like maybe a quarter of the swings I make, I unconsciously lift the driver head up before taking it back. I'll give it a try next time out.

And what about lining up off the toe? How does that help?

Driver is my nemesis, I need all the help I can get

Same basic thing. Hover your driver head with the ball lined up with the sweet spot. Now let your arms down and sole it. It’s lined up more towards the toe.

The even worse driver problem is the terrible pivot heel hit. First video, this is the swing I regress to when I try to swing hard, too much arms/hands, no turn, give up on the shot towards the end. Second video is the correction, exaggeration, awkward follow through, no extension at the end. The following swings get better and then the last swing, no sticks. I think after the correction swing, I regress, rotate less and less with each swing. But going back to using the sticks, I think it has helped the pivot in terms of getting around better, full turn, without falling to the right (ball side) at the end of the swing.

Last swing in real time. Just a tad towards the heel. I can think of a lot of things I'd like to do better, head is moving around like crazy, can get butt more on the wall going down, in general can do more "eat the ball", can be more rotated at 6 and 7, more extension post impact, and all that at a faster speed, but I get this is going to be a marathon. All the above swings are at a very controlled speed, not slow enough to make the swing contrived, not fast enough so that things go pear shaped.

Mid irons more manageable than driver. 6 iron after making 5 swings using the sticks.
