When hitting driver, do you drop and turn your front shoulder like irons? Or are you more level?

      — Larry, New York City

Great question! The driver shoulder turn is exactly like the irons: down and then around. The only real difference is the setup. We are slightly more upright because of the longer shaft. This makes the turn appear more flat, but it should feel the same as the irons.

How can I strike the sweet spot more often?
