Top 12 Golf Driver Videos
A 2 wood-driver has about 12 degrees of loft. It's quite lofted for a driver, but a 3-wood would maybe have 13, 14, 15 degrees of loft, so it's quite strong for a 3-wood. So a 2-driver fits nicely in that gap.
Stick a ball on a tee peg and stick another tee-peg in the front of the first. My job now is to actually try knock the 2nd tee-peg over as I hit this ball.
Another consideration is where you’re aiming for is not always the dead center of the fairway. If have a dog leg or an approach shot to a green it might be going over water, over trees, the middle of the fairway might not be the best place to aim. You might be better aiming left or right to widen the shot into the green.
An offset driver would encourage the club head to release better through the ball and giving you more time to close the head before impact.
Just focus on making a slightly slower but longer rotation of your shoulders. So you need to allow yourself the time to really wind that golf club up to the top.
We want to create a ball flight that’s penetrating, the most efficient ball flight you can get. One of the main reasons for the ball flying too high is actually badly fitted equipment, the wrong equipment for the job, either a golf club that has too much loft, too much angle on the club face, or the wrong shaft for you.
If you need more height on your drivers and the optimum trajectory isn't being reached, change to a more lofted club.
We often spend a lot of time talking about how to hit the driver further, but there also times when you just want to focus on getting the ball in play.
If you want the ultimate combination in your driving of massive distance yet really good accuracy, here's a couple of drills that will help you out.
Don’t setup with the driver having the ball position in the middle and leaning left this is going to cause you to come down into the golf ball steep and practically presenting the crown of the golf club into the golf ball and the results will be a skied drive.
Lag is created in the back swing by hinging the wrists up trying to create an L shape of around about 90 degrees or more between the shaft and the left forearm, creating lag into the back swing and then holding the lag as we pull down towards the ball.
If you can keep the club hovering at address with your driver, that might just help with a smoother tempo and a better strike of the tee.
