Quick Golf Tips - Maxing Out The Driver


When you fail to hit par 4s in two, you put a lot of pressure on your short game. So your goal off the tee should always be to hit good tee shots. One cause for inconsistency off the tee is swinging your driver like an iron. It causes pop-up, thin shots, and worm burners. Below is a drill that teaches you to swing the driver level:

Line up four balls in a row about 4 inches apart. Now hit each one with your driver. After you hit the last ball, check your tees:

If the tee is leaning forward, you hit too high on the ball. This leads to thin contact and worm-burners.

If tee is out of the ground, your downswing was too steep. This leads to pop-ups and fat shots.



If the tee looks like it did when you first stuck it in the ground, you made a level swing--the key to consistent contact.

Repeat the drill until the tees never move.

If you can't get the tees to stay put, try imagining the clubhead coming into the ball like an airplane landing or that you're driving a nail straight into the back of the ball. Above all don't hit down on the ball like you would with an iron. Level it out. You'll generate a more penetrating ball flight and more yards.
