Driver Tip 4: Lead with Your Elbow for Speed

Driver Tip 4: For Clubhead Speed, Lead with Your Elbow

Imagine a baseball pitcher on the mound. They generate velocity by leading the pitch with their elbow. Your golf swing works the same way.

If you want to deliver maximum club head speed at the moment of impact, you should feel as though you are leading the downswing with your right elbow. That will help you hold lag and delay the release the same way a baseball pitcher snaps off a fastball.
