Quick Golf Tips - Turn Your Stance Into A Launching Pad


Generally speaking, accuracy is better than distance. It's better to be 20 yards shorter on the fairway, than 20 yards longer in deep rough. But sometimes you really need to bomb one off the tee. Or, you're in desperate need just to hit your driver 20 yards beyond your average. What do you do? Making some subtle adjustments to your stance can turn it into a launching pad and give you those 20 extra yards you seeking.

Below are the three power changes you need to make:
Move your spine closer to target
Pull your right shoulder back
Play the ball back slightly


Turn your address position into a launching pad by making three adjustments. All involve minor changes to your stance:

*Move your spine's base closer to the target. This tilts your spine slightly to the right, which means your upper body is leaning away from the target. This change encourages an upward, inside-out swing.
*Pull your right shoulder back slightly from its usual position. This change points your swing plane slightly to the right, which helps you swing right of target and increases your chances of hitting a draw.
*Play the ball back slightly from where you normally position it. This change gets you in the habit of swinging slightly right of target on your downswing and adding right to left spin common to huge tee shots.

These three adjustments don't have to be big. About one inch each is fine. Then, swing normally. Make sure you don't overswing! And don't grip the club too tightly. Strangling it slows your swing.

These three changes turn your tee shot into a draw. So your ball travels farther and rolls more when it hits the ground, giving you the 20 extra yards you want.
