Whats the easiest way to hit longer drives? (Video)

Now if you are trying to hit the ball a long way with the driver off the tee, here’s a couple of really nice little clues that will help you get maximum distance. First thing is you want to tee the ball up as high as we possibly can. So we’re aiming to get the ball about half a ball above the top of the golf club. So if I stand around this side you can see that half the ball above the top. Any lower than that the chances are it’s going to come too low on the face reducing the height and reducing the distance of the shots. If I get it too high, there is a risk I would go straight underneath the ball, it would hit off the crown of the golf club resulting in a pop up or a sky golf shot but that’s not very common if I’m honest. Get the ball up so it’s about half a ball over the top of the club that would work nicely for you. Then get the ball well forwards and up in your stance.

So the easiest way to do this is actually just set your feet up 50/50 either side of the golf ball and then just move your rear foot away. And if I just move my rear foot away, I’ve now create a wide stance with a nice forwards ball position. So set up 50/50, just move the rear leg. I’ve got the ball teed high, I’ve got a nice wide stance, now I’m going to set my spine angle away from the target. I’m actually going to lean my hips forwards and my shoulders backwards to create a spine angle that tilts away. As I make a big wind up now, I turn and move into my right side, creating a nice coiled wound up feeling and then during impact a big drive back through sweeping that ball from the front foot and hitting up on the rise. And that’s three great little tips to maximize you the club head speed that you can make with your normal swing by just using a high tee peg, a ball forwards, and a good spine angle away from the golf ball to maximize distance with your driver.
