How to get the maximum distance out of your driver.

  • The correct tee height is vital to achieve consistency off the tee when you are using your driver.
  • With a driver you are looking to strike the ball on an upward swing, ( this is when the club reaches the bottom of the swing arc)
  • As well as teeing the ball up, ensure the ball is forward in your stance ( inside of left heel).
  • At impact the ball should make contact with the  driver  just slightly above the middle of the club face, this will reduce spin especially into a headwind and help the ball to launch onto its correct ball flight.
  • If the ball is placed on a tee too low it will cause you to create too much of a descending angle (steep) of attack into the ball.
  • Another important point is to make sure you achieve a good posture at the address position and maintain a smooth rhythm so your arms and club can work in sync with your body.
