The Set Up - Driver Ball Position

When you have the driver in your hand do you tee the ball up opposite your left instep? If you're a power hitter and are getting good results keep at it. However, if you have problems with the driver it might not be such a good idea to tee the ball that far forward in your stance. When the ball is placed forward in your stance you are hitting the ball on the upswing. In order to keep your clubface square your hands must make adjustments as the club passes the bottom of the swing arc. Any variation in clubface angle at impact will result in a mis-hit. You might want to try sacrificing a bit of distance for accuracy by hitting the ball at the bottom of the swing arc.

Try taking a practice swing with just your left arm. Note the point where your clubface is at the bottom of the swing arc. This is the point at which your clubface will be naturally square to your target line by using just the rotation of your upper body. You've taken any adjustment of your hands out of the equation. The result may be some loss of distance but you'll wind up playing from the fairway a lot more often.

A handful of golfers is the most fundamental of the golf swing. There are several options when choosing the right handle grip and decide what is good for you is essential, both to what extent and how you manage to hit the ball straight.
