Driver Swing vs Iron Swing (The 2 Most Important Differences No-one Tells You)

Driver Swing vs Iron Swing (The 2 Most Important Differences No-one Tells You)

Most golfers would all agree, that the setup should be different between the irons and driver. We want to hit the ball with a more ascending strike with the driver and we need to ‘compress’ our irons, so that we strike the ball and then the turf.

However, should there be a conscious difference during the swing? Sure, many golfers will swing a little linger and a little faster with the driver but what about technique?

The Aussie Golf Pros argue that for the majority of golfers, we’re better off relying on the setup to produce the differing angles of attack.

There are two specific differences, that other channels seem to ignore. These two small but important factors are often overlooked and we highlight them here.

Golf Coaches, Not Teachers

The Aussie Golf Pros are holistic coaches in every sense of the word. Steve and Glen are both fully qualified members of the PGA of Australia and are avid students of the Sports Sciences. Together, they are certified in Advanced Golf Coaching, Golf Psychology, TPI (Body-Swing Connection), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Personal Development and Skill Acquisition.

Steve and Glen are not ‘Method’ coaches. They recognise that there are literally 1000’s of ways to swing a golf club! Rather than try to ‘change’ your swing, their goal is to help You Be The Best Golfer You Can Be!

Skill Development vs Technical Changes

Although technique is an important factor in improving a golfer’s performance, Skill Development is largely neglected in golf coaching today. Skill is something that can be tangibly improved with proper understanding of the golf impact laws and effective practice towards improved performance.

External Focus of Attention

Most golf teaching involves an internal focus. Common suggestions might include increased hip turn, a still head or improved hand path. These are all factors of the golf swing, which many golfers and teachers consider important. However, as they are focused internally, on movements of the body, golfers find changes extremely difficult to process.

Enter the world of External Focus of Attention. This means that instead of focusing on body parts, a golfer can and should focus more on the target, the ball, the clubhead – objects which are external to the body. The sciences involving Motor Skill Learning have proven that by employing an External Focus of Attention, sports men and women learn new moves more quickly, retain changes more readily and can perform better under pressure.

All of the Aussie Golf Pros coaching, drills and advice for clients and viewers, involve an External Focus of Attention and the results can be astonishing!
