Crush Your Golf Drives

So you want to drive like Tiger and putt like Ben Crenshaw, huh?

Well, don’t we all?

Long drives and accuracy are a bit like oil and water in terms of a combination but they don’t have to be.  Just imagine if you could hit your drives consistently in the fairway 250 yards + nearly every time…wouldn’t that make the game a lot easier…and fun?

Having a good tee ball is critical to your confidence and placing the ball where you can score.  We all can get easily frustrated when things go sideways with the driver, so I’m going to share you with you some secrets on how to get the most distance from your tee ball while keeping it accurate.

There are basically three elements to being able to get the distance and accuracy you desire with the driver.

1. You must have a good handle on the clubhead and have complete control of it. There are two things to check when dealing with club face control. First, you need to check your grip. Second, you need to see if you have the ability to hit a ball to the left and to the right.  If you can do both of those, you should be able to split the difference and hit the ball straight.  Now, I’m not talking about being able to work the ball like a trick shot artist…just know how to bend it a little right or left when needed. (Hint: Open the clubface to hit a fade, close it slightly for a draw) 

2. Make sure you have good rotation in the shoulders and hips.  Power is created from “coiling” or turning away from and then back through the ball.  If you don’t “coil” or turn properly, you will never realize maximum distance. Pretend you are trying to turn your belt buckle as far away from the target while turning during your backswing.  Also, make sure that when you come through the ball at impact, you are completing your turn to a nice high and solid finish.

3. You will need really good rhythm in order to achieve your best distance and accuracy. Don’t be tempted to make a quick move from the top of your swing, which can ruin your entire tempo and sequence of events. (Most high handicappers make this mistake).  You can counteract this movement by developing internal counting during your swing. Counting "one one thousand" on your backswing and "two one thousand” on the downswing will help to create a smooth rhythm.

Now, most people will have trouble with these elements with the driver because it is the longest and most difficult club to hit.  It will be easier with the shorter clubs because there is less of a premium on distance and more on accuracy.

One drill I have seen work wonders is to try to alternate hitting your driver and 9 iron when practicing.  Start with the 9 iron and make a few good swings using the 3 elements above.  Don’t overswing, just make nice easy swings.  Then, pick up the driver and create the same motion and tempo.  Don’t swing any harder, just focus on the elements.  If you can’t hit the driver with the same results as your 9 iron, go back to the 9 iron and see the difference.  Keep alternating 9 iron and driver until you get a consistent rhythm and tempo.  A great case in point is to watch PGA pro Kenny Perry.  He hits the ball a long way with a very compact and easy swing. Why?  Because he has great control over his club head, makes a wonderful turn away from and through the ball and lastly, has exceptional rhythm. 

So, pay attention to these 3 elements and don’t be surprised if you start hitting them long…AND straight.

GETTING MORE DISTANCE


BEST TIP: Maximize coil and keep body relaxed a light grip.


At address, keep most of your weight on right foot.


Widen your stance, with toes pointed out.


Tee ball high and hit it with an ascending blow.


Use a strong grip and light grip pressure.


Waggle to relax muscles and rehearse hinging of right wrist.


Make a wide arc and strive for maximum extension.


Maximize coil and get left shoulder and hip behind ball on backswing.


To maximize coil, don’t lift left foot on backswing.


Hinge wrists fully at top of backswing.


Be sure to complete the backswing to put the club in the right position.


Don’t let your left arm bend at the top of the backswing.


Start your downswing by pointing the butt end of the club toward the ball.


Relax arms, make a shallow approach, delay turning of shoulders on downswing, let arms extend and pull shoulders into finish.


Accelerate the club slowly on downswing.


Rotate shaft through impact.


Try to generate maximum clubhead speed when the clubhead passes the ball, not at or before impact.


Keep head and upper body behind ball throughout swing.


Try to keep your right heel on the ground longer on downswing to help keep your body back.


Hit the ball on the upswing.


Throughout the swing, the only pressure point in your grip should be at the point where the lower pad of your right thumb meets the knuckle of your left thumb.


Tough Conditions

By Bobby Eldridge

Have you ever gone to play a round of golf and the first hole the wind is straight into you, the next two holes it’s blowing out of the right, the next two holes it’s from the left, then four holes in a row straight back into the wind, and then it gets worse?

The next three holes it’s blowing harder from the left. Then you get the shortest hole in the golf course downwind. And then, of course, you know the rest of the story, the next three holes, the longest holes in the golf course, dead into the teeth of it.

Well, those are tough driving days and you have to be prepared to react to it, because the wind isn’t going to stop just for you.

And when you’re playing well, I know you’re going to laugh, but it seems like every hole’s downwind. And when you’re playing difficult, it seems like every one of them is into a gale.

 Remember this about tough driving days, this driver is not always the answer. How many times have you driven the golf ball 50 yards left of the fairway and only wished that you would have hit 6 iron off of the tee to get a better golf swing?

 I’m not advocating that into the wind. However, the flatter the face on the golf club, the more the golf ball’s going to curve and the better your golf swing will be. And the windier it is, it exaggerates the curve if it’s going in the direction of the wind. So, this isn’t always the answer.

 I have a 1 iron that I love, and I have driven with it many times on windy days, even into the wind, because it was important to find the golf ball in the fairway and not out of bounds.

 So, don’t forget this is not the answer on rugged days. This is the answer when you’re driving the ball well.

When you’re not, it might be a 3 wood. Don’t give into the driver.
