Letting the ball fly to the golf hole always begin with a well-executed tee shot. However, making a successful tee-shot will not involve luck and brute strength. In fact, it all boils down to getting your golfing fundamentals right. To result in an accurate drive with the help of golf drivers, here are a few factors you have to consider.
The first step to using golf drivers is to set your feet properly for the right base support. To do this, give your body a few centimeters of distance from the ball and set your feet apart and parallel to the shoulders. Doing this enables the body to distribute its weight properly as it assumes the swinging position.
Also, align the body in such a way that the heel of your non-dominant side rests on the back. This will prevent your body from losing balance as you bear the club on the ball and ensure maximum flight and distance in each shot. To find the right driving range for your play type, have the ball move further or closer to your body. This will change the results of your performance greatly.
First and foremost, never grip golf drivers as if you are holding a baseball bat or a broadsword. Instead, grip it firmly but not too tight. You can tell if your grip is of the right pressure if you start seeing the knuckles of your index and middle fingers. This proper gripping will let you maximize the distance of your shots without putting too much strain on your hands. Keep in mind that your performance will get considerably worse the more tired you get in each shot. Once your dominant hand is gripping the driver firmly, let your non-dominant hand cover it and make sure it follows the motion of every swing.
Experienced golfers tend to assume a square position for the most accurate tee-shot. This position means that your body and feet are directly parallel to the ball. To check if your body is correctly aligned to the target, you can place the golf drivers on the ground along your feet. While keeping the club head in place, slowly walk around the ball to see where your body can find itself most comfortable when swinging the ball. Also, your body must be comfortable enough in that position in order to maximize your swing speed and power.
A lot of beginner-level golf players tend to flip the hands forward when swinging in the hope of increasing ball flight. This is usually considered “cheating” in golf as it defeats the purpose of learning golf drive fundamentals. The proper position for the leading hand is a downwards angle while facing the ball during the down swing. If the leading hand continues to flip up as it takes a swing, it will be certain that the shot will not feel solid as the club head makes contact with the ball which always results in a miss. However, the right leading hand position will let the ball fly higher by using all the power generated through the swing.
As soon as the ball leaves the tee, finish the swing by placing the golf drivers over your left shoulder or right depending on your dominant arm. As you finish the swing, make sure that you turn your body forward and raise your head to look forward. This will allow you to see the ball where it lands; a necessary factor in improving your swinging performance in future shots.
