Golfers: Tips for Driving Farther

Practical Golf shares some tips for all the golfers that want to increase their drivers by as much as 20 yards.  Jon Sherman, Practical Golf, got these tips from a fellow golfer, a Florida State University golf team alum.  Despite being 15 years out of his career, he was still able to catapult the ball 250-300 yards and break par without breaking stride.

So I asked him, “How do you do it and what am I not doing right?”  “He simply said, “you need to hit up on the ball, and your setup is all wrong.” I hadn’t realized it but over time I had let my tee position with my driver shift more towards the middle of the stance, and was teeing the ball way too low (these were the other suggestions he made to me).”

  • Hit up on the ball – learn more about the angle of attack
  • Tee the ball higher
  • Move the ball closer to your lead foot (just inside the heel)
  • Lower your trail shoulder so your spine angle is pointing to the sky a little more
  • Try different drills
  • Work on getting feedback
