Golfers- Crush Your Drives... AND Keep It In Play

How To Break 80

So you want to drive like Tiger and putt like Ben Crenshaw, huh? 
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 and 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 clubhead, 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 starting hitting them long... AND straight.
