This might be the best feat in RE/MAX long driving history. Bobby Wilson: Hi Bobby Wilson here, Founder of the Power Golf Institute and four time RE/MAX world long drive champion.
I get the question all the time.
Bobby, what is the transition, how do I get in to the hitting area? Does my left leg, does my left hip go first? Does the club drop? What do we do? What I like to give you is the pump drill.
I think everything works in syncopation, that means at the same time.
I never want you to try to segregate your golf swing.
It is a motion in action.
Here is what we are going to do.
Just to give you a good feeling sensation is this.
I want you to set up, you can do it with a driver, you can do it with a seven iron. I like for you to try it with your seven iron first and just barely tee it up, but here it is.
I want you to get good set up.
We've worked always on getting good width in the swing.
Now from right here, I want you to feel like you pump.
You're feeling like you got the butt in the club going towards the target, you feel like your right elbow comes into your right pocket.
All these are the visuals that Hogan used, that some of the great players have used.
I want you to do the pump drill and then I want you to hit the ball.
This gives the transition ...
This is, as I say in my product, maximum overdrive.
This is how you put the car in gear.
This is how you put it in drive.
This is the transition.
We're going to do the drill one time and I'm going to go ahead and hit this ball, show you how easy it is to do the pump drill.
Here we go.
D'oh! God, I hate it when I hit it that good but you noticed, everything was together.
My upper body stayed behind it but the pump drill got everything working at the same time.
It's a great drill to get you in transition, to get you accelerating the club.
When we accelerate the club and we hit it solid, what's my favorite saying? Golf's a lot more fun when you're out driving your buddy.
Use the pump drill and have some fun.
