For all those players who would like to get a little more distance off the tee, there are a few key pieces to achieving driver distance.

In case you can’t have the sound up on the video, here are the steps to getting more driver distance.

Let’s start with the setup, which I believe is one¬†of the strongest fundamentals and will bring you the most consistency when properly¬†executed.

Fingers of the left hand/ let the hands work together as one unit

Inside the left heel

hips square to the ground, tilt the spine slightly to the right positioning your left ear
behind the ball at address

left arm long and right arm relaxed with zero pressure, slightly lower left shoulder due to the spine angle

Now to the swing –

The driver motion is a sweeping motion where you basically want to sweep the ball off the tee with a very shallow path at the bottom.

The swing to the top is a full rotation and pivot into the right hip (for a right-hander) being careful not to sway off the ball to the top, then simply get to your left leg, this will allow you to start the forward swing with your lower left side and promote a consistent finish to the target.

Good Luck – enjoy your new distance with the driver!
