Driving

Driving distance and accuracy… The two things that every golfer wants to master. 

Sometimes we all can all struggle with our driver. But whether you get nervous on the tee box, or are prone to the occasional slice, it doesn’t need to be this way.

Starting out, it’s important to remember the ball is positioned on a tee. As such, you need to learn to hit up and at the ball to ensure that you are hitting the perfect drive. 

To do this, make sure you keep your trail shoulder much lower than your lead shoulder at the address position – this will give you a sense of swinging up and out with the clubhead.

Another good piece of advice for driving the ball well is to swing within yourself. The 80% rule of swinging instead of full capacity always helps with good balance, good tempo and good rhythm.

In a nutshell, if you manage to hold your follow-through, then you probably did everything above correctly, and are well on the way to mastering your driving technique.
