Being able to get off the tee consistently well certainly makes the game a golf a lot easier, but it’s no surprise that for most amateur golfers the driver is the most difficult club in the bag to hit.
Among the reasons is that the driver is the longest club in your bag, which means it’s the most difficult to control, and it also has the least amount of loft, which can lead to a major lack of forgiveness on your poor shots.
One of the crucial components to hitting the driver well that many golfers take for granted is setting up properly with that club, which includes the correct ball position. And too many golfers play the ball too far back in their stance, which creates all sorts of issues when it comes to ball-striking.
In this video segment, Swingpal.com instructor Karen Palacios-Jansen shows you what constitutes proper ball position when you’re hitting a driver.
Take a look at this video and the next time you’re at the range make sure you take the time to check your ball position. It could make a big difference in how well you drive the ball.
