The most important shot in golf now is hitting the driver. It’s been the classic belief that putting is the more valuable shot compared to the drive. Mathematically we have found out that the driver is now the most significant shot. It helps other aspects of the game settle in place that’s why it is important. When a long drive hits on target, you are now in a perfect position to make your 2nd shot to land on the green in regulation, which makes it an important shot. The tricky part in hitting the driver straight is its incorrect clubs in the bag. Because of its long shaft and low loft, the driver is considered as an inaccurate club in the bag. Which means that the shot could end up stronger than intended. You already has a pattern in mastering how to hit the driver straight but you can use the clues that we will give to you.
The first thing we have to speak about are the fundamentals of hitting the driver. Let us begin off with the golf grip. What’s the golf grip type you’re using? To check out the quality of your grip, take your club. There are numerous videos on YouTube which helps you grip the club effectively. It is ideal that you go for a more basic and neutral grip. We are suggesting that because a lot of amateur golf players are hitting the ball towards the right. After that, look at the way you align yourself to the ball. To succeed in hitting the ball straight, you have to align your self up. It might seem like a minor thing but many golfers do not hit the ball straight because they do not spend enough time concentrating on their alignment. There are times where you are not really aware that you are already lining up to the right. This is commonly made by right-handed golf players, making them wonder why they lose the ball towards the right. If you angle yourself in to the ball towards the left slightly, you’ll hit straight.
Impact dynamics are the next thing to learn. You need to pay attention to this as this is an essential subject in golf game. Hitting up on the golf ball if you use a driver is heard but not executed. You want the ball to come with a high launch angle that’s why you hit up on the golf ball. A high launch angle will take spin off the ball and will boost your distance. It will also help take the side spin off the ball that can cause you to be not so accurate. The question here is how will you able to hit up the golf ball with out tracing a linear path? Most amateur golfers when they’re told to hit up on the golf ball trace a straight line path that leaves the clubface open and it sends the golf ball off to the right. Delivery path is the term discussed earlier, which is about the truth on hitting up on the golf ball. You should swing the driver slightly outward to swing up on the golf ball. The driver is made to work by hitting the ball longer and straighter, thus you need to swing outward and upward at the same time. This also has the effect of shallowing out your golf swing so that you could hit on that upward swing angle that is required to create the correct impact dynamics.
