Golf Tip – Low Drives

May 1, 2016 Posted by Matt

low drivesDo you hit low drives?  Are they short?  Many amateur golfers hit line drive tee shots that lack distance.  One of the main causes of low drives is shaft lean.  Shaft lean means that your hands are ahead of the ball and the shaft leans toward the club head that sits behind the ball.  The shaft lean causes you to de-loft your driver.  To hit higher and longer drives, widen your stance a little.  Tilt your shoulders so your back shoulder is lower than your front.  Place your hands so they are parallel to the ball or slightly behind it.  Let it rip!
