Improve your Angle of Attack with the Driver

Watch this video to see how a bungee cord can improve your swing.

The cord can be used with any club in the bag although I used a driver in this video to demonstrate how using the cord will help you rotate more efficiently and sweep the ball off the tee. 

This is a great training aid to use for your irons too, particularly if your divots are too deep.  When using the cord with irons, I recommend using a 7 iron and tee the ball up about 1/2".  Perform the drill as described with the driver and you should start "clipping" the ball off the tee with your 7 iron.
