Hit more fairways to setup better scoring
With Adam Bazelgette
Learning how to hit a driver well off the tee encompasses many things not least of which is the fact that, with the ball pegged well up on a tee, the ball should ideally be struck with the club moving on the way up which is unlike most other types of golf shots where the ball should be struck down upon. This difference is more easily achieved than one might think with the key being a change from the usual ball position at address. There are however other complicating factors most of which have their roots in the mind of the golfer; the drive is of course normally the first shot at each hole and "getting the ball in play" is a vital pre-requisite for the confident golfer. The driver is also the heaviest club with the longest shaft and this, combined its lack of loft, can magnify any swing faults and, for many, the driver can be the hardest club to hit.
