So many golfers just want to hit longer, straighter drives when they’re out on the golf course.
In this week’s YouTube video we worked with Adrian, on the simplest things to help him find more consistency with his driver.
We started with the grip and body alignment, then we moved on to a small move you can make with your right arm to easily add distance to your drives.
When looking at Adrian’s swing path on the launch monitor we could see that his swing was moving out to the right of the target. In this case it wasn’t due to the swing path being out to in, it was a case of his body alignment not being parallel to the target line.
As you can see from the image below, his feet were actually aiming right of the target line, which explains why his swing path was 8 degrees to the right as players usually swing in line with the way their body is aiming.
This was a very simple fix, and it’s one of the reasons we recommend that you guys go back to basics regularly to check the fundamentals of your swing. We put an alignment stick down on the floor in the correct position, running parallel to the target line and got Adrian to set up with this stick in mind. Within a few shots his ball flight has straightened dramatically.
