    Drills for Separation

    Hi Guys,

    I wonder if you could help. I've gone a big swing change and its helped really well - gone for 9.6 to 6.7 (with my lowest being 6.0)
    but my biggest issue is Separating my lower body from my upper body.

    So I tend to do a couple of things

    1) Get to far ahead so either fat or pushing the ball.
    2) Don't follow through with hips enough so the arms and body take over and pull.

    But when I get it right - its brilliant - very good. So need to improve tempo, timing and SEPARATION!

    Any good drills to assist with this?
