What Is The Best Option For Better Driver Accuracy (Video) Pete Styles â?? PGA Teaching Pro Pete Styles – PGA Teaching Pro

If you offered a golfer any opportunity to improve one aspect of their game by waving a magic wand and improving it. A lot of people and maybe myself included would say I just want to hit more fairways is not too much to ask is it I don't really mind hit a long way I just want to hit more fairways. So if we could give you a technique that hit more fairways more accuracy off the tee with the driver maybe that would be something worth considering but as with all things it's not a perfect solution otherwise we'd have all been doing it for years. So the consideration would be how about gripping down on the club with a driver. So we've got a driver set up here if we go down a little bit lower What are the pros and cons of doing this well first thing to notice is you set up to the golf ball is if you get down to twelve move a little bit nearer to the ball as well. So now I'm in this position I'm a little bit nearer to the ball and I make my normal swing, and I hit the ball down there and I hit that on pretty straight. So I could say that maybe gripping down on the club worked for me in that situation I hit the ball nice and straight and if that's my only aim that's fantastic but what a downside what the perils of doing that.

One of the considerations would be that the ball goes a little bit lower than it would have normally have done and also it goes a little bit shorter than it would normally and those two things are kind of tied together just because the club is a little bit shorter in my hands my club head speed would have suffered by close be probably lost five or even six or eight miles an hour by holding lower down on the club. Now because I'm swinging the club slower it doesn't go as far and also it doesn't quite picture up as high so as long as I can take that as a sacrifice we talked at the start would you want to hit more fairways would you want to hit the ball further and if someone says you know what I'm not interested in distance of interest in fairways maybe gripping down is a good thing for them slightly lower slightly shorter because we have more control of the club had the one of the downsize in a way it's an adjustment is different to what you would do normally. So most of your other iron shots wedge shots three which you probably holding right at the back end here the synergy grip down here is an adjustment and it can feel a little bit awkward and like I also talked about you moved a little bit nearer the ball. So lots of those things can actually be slightly detrimental to how you would normally play the game but it's a case of the pros and the cons and it's looking at the benefits of hitting the ball a bit straighter a little bit shorter and a little bit lower and weighing it up against the the concept of well if I'm on more fairways that I don't mind losing a bit of distance I don't mind making that adjustment to get the benefits. One of the best thing I could suggest here is take twenty balls out the driving range hit ten of them with the full grip it ten of them with a little grip down and just see which one gives you the most accuracy the most consistency and even if you lose a bit of distance is that a worth while trade-off.
