The following 80 I chunked maybe 10. Now, not all of them were on target (alignment issue) but all of them were exactly how it's supposed to feel to hit the ball first andf then the ground.

Can you use this same philosophy with the driver? I mean not exactly the same arc right? But the same principle?

Dude, I really owe you for this. I'll have to send you a sleeve of balls.

Or phillfree can cup yours! (J/K phill)
The biggest difference with your driver is your setup. Your trailing shoulder should be lower than the lead shoulder, whereas with other clubs they are even. This encourages a slightly upward blow. Otherwise, the swing is largely identical.

Here's the video I was referencing:
