WOULD YOU LIKE 10 MORE YARDS WITH YOUR DRIVER? Unless you are Dustin Johnson you would like more driver distance (and he probably would too )! This month, I am so excited to share tips on increasing your driver distance with my friends over at www.womensgolf.com. Enjoy the video and if you like what you see, you'll absolutely need to download the new Pink Peg Golf App here!
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.
GRIP Fingers of the left hand/ let the hands work together as one unit
BALL POSITION Inside the left heel
SPINE hips square to the ground, tilt the spine slightly to the right positioning your left ear behind the ball at address
ARMS left arm long and right arm relaxed with zero pressure, slightly lower left shoulder due to the spine angle
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!
