Let’s get off to a successful start with the Speed Trap 2.0. Start with 3 Easy Steps
Step 1 - Base Only
Begin with the base only. Let yourself adjust to a new view of the target. Make some swings to just hit the ground in the middle of the slot. Start with slow, partial swings. Aim for slow swings that just brush the turf... then move on!
Let’s add a target - put a tee in the turf. Make slow, partial swings hitting the tee.
Increase speed and swing length. Stay with this drill until it seems easy, then move on.
Add a Ball!
Step 2 - Rods Facing Outwards
Let’s bring in the challenge you’ve been waiting for - the brilliant, red, training rods! Start with one or two rods facing outwards. Put them in the front, and as wide as possible. Begin with no ball, just a tee - make slow, partial swings. Increase your speed and length.
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for... add the ball and tee it up (for now). Make slow, partial swings. Focus on good contact with the ball- missing the rods. Increase speed and swing length. Stay with this drill until it seems easy... then move on.
Step 3 - Rods Tilted Toward Body
Start with only the front rods. Make good swings and begin reducing the width of the rods. Find success first, then make it more challenging. Bigger clubs, the driver for instance, need wider margins. You are building a reliable swing!
You are now ready to use different rod configurations to shape shots. See the "Draws and Fades" section below to learn how to eliminate your slice or hook and hit a beautiful fade or draw.
Good work, let's move on!
