How can I get longer drives?
I have a tendency to get across the line at the top of my swing which leads me to block shots, especially with my driver. What drills or instruction can you give me to help with this?
Whenever I am hitting practice shots from a tee box I can get myself easily into the right alignment and I hit the ball very well. It makes sense that because of the tee box, getting properly aligned is a breeze. But when I play from a regular tee or fairway etc.
I am a 13 hcp and would like some drills to increase my swng speed. My driver speed is about 95 mph. Would longer shafts help? I am 5 ft 9in tall.
My core question is, should I learn to play a fade or draw with my driver so I can build some consistency with landing area? In other words, should I work to correct the core inconsistency in my swing or learn to play a more predictable pattern? Is a straight shot bad?
I started golf at 50, so I'm way behind my peers. I'm now 70 and with many lessons, a 10 handicap. I can't seem to be able to stop starting my swing at the top with my arms coming over the top outside in. I either pull or slice when I do this. HELP! Thanks.
I've been playing for two yrs now and love the game, but the problem is that nature cheated me out and I only stand 5'-5" tall. On an average drive, I probably hit the ball 220 yds or so. I can't help feeling cheated when I see 6'+ tall guys hammering the ball.
I just started learning how to play golf from and instructor and was wondering does power come with time and comfort from your swing or is that it when you get your swing somewhat sound. I'm 24 years old with a background in football and wrestling and do lift 3 times a week.
What is the best way to hit a draw with a driver? Is it in the grip or set up or what?
I was having problems getting my ball off the ground from the tee, so I moved the ball well forward in my stance. I was getting the ball up, but now I have a bad hook with a lot of spin. From the tee the ball goes about 70 yards hooking then dives straight to the ground.
Many people over swing and tee the ball lower on tee shots into the wind which can magnify many off center hits and overall bad swings. I would like to see players stay consistent with their set up during such tee shots and stay more focused on a weight shift to the left side for right h
Survey the hole and tee the ball on the side of the tee box that trouble is on. This will enable you to hit away from the trouble. For example if a pond is on the right side of the hole then you want to tee your ball on the right side of the tee box. This again will enable yo
Many championship golf courses can be considered decision-maker's golf courses. Choosing shots that match your ability level is critical. Understanding the value of risk and reward will help you make the right decisions to keep you score as low as possible.
You want to take every advantage of down wind conditions. Here are the keys: 1. Tee the ball about a < to = an inch higher. 2. Move your ball 1 inch up in your stance. 3. Swing easy and be patient. Moving the ball up means that it will take a longer period of time
Scott Piercy won the RBC Canadian Open, in large part because of his four-birdie run early in the final round. And that run was punctuated when he drove the green on the 300 yard par 4 fifth hole. Wouldn't it be great if you had that shot in your bag?
Once again, it was great to see the world's best players visit my home facility, the TPC River Highlands. It's always exciting to see how the elite players take on the same course that you play on, teach on and watch so many other golfers take on.
