1. Use foot spray to improve your consistency
This might sound strange, but hear us out.
Hitting your drives out of the centre of the clubface is crucial if you’re going to consistently hit it long and straight off the tee.
But it’s not always easy to know exactly where the ball was struck on the club face, which can make it difficult to understand where you’re going wrong and what you can do to fix it.
That’s where the foot spray comes in.
When you’re at the driving range, spray the driver’s club face with athlete’s foot spray or strike spray and then hit some shots.
Look at the club face after you’ve hit your shot and you’ll see where the ball was struck on impact. The more you do this, the more you’ll pick up trends and notice your own personal pattern – and then take steps to change it so that you strike the ball out of the centre more frequently.
Remember, whatever you measure, you will improve.
2. Use an impact bag to stop your slice
This tip is guaranteed to increase your distance and fix your slice – we’ve never seen it not work!
All you need is a driver and an impact bag, which are affordable but under-used training aids.
We want you to practice striking the impact bag with your driver, but not with any part of the driver – specifically the toe of the driver.
You then need to start hitting some balls, looking for the same feeling when you strike a ball.
If you do this, it means you’ll be closing the club face on impact, which is exactly what we need to happen if you’re going to fix your slice off the tee.
3. Miss the headcover
Hitting up on the golf ball when driving is crucial if you’re going to optimise your distance off the tee.
One of our best tips to help you do this more frequently is also one of our simplest.
When you’re at the driving range, place a head cover about a grip-length in front of the tee.
If you hit down on the ball when you drive, you’ll likely hit the headcover in the follow-through of your swing.
So your goal is to avoid hitting the headcover when you swing, generating a higher launch and lower spin.
Drive the ball better than you thought possible
