The Difference Between an Iron Swing and a Driver Swing

I get asked all the time, "is the swing for the driver the same as an iron"?  The simple answer is no, they are different and the main difference is the angle of attack.  With an iron, there should be a divot on the target side of the ball.  This is accomplished by striking the ball with a downward or descending arc.  There better not be a divot with the driver!  The driver swing is shallower and the goal is to strike the ball with a slightly upward or ascending arc.

This is a simple drill which will help you distinguish between the two swings.
