Hitting fairways with arrow straight drives is something we all strive for.  Well maybe its not that hard to achieve with the correct mindset and fundamentals.  Follow these simple steps and we guarantee you will hit more fairways.

  • Hold down the handle – This creates the mindset that you want to hit the ball under more control as well as actually reducing distance.


  • Simply swing at what you feel is 60% power, the reality is that you will probably swing at 85%!
  • To finish off make sure you hold your finish until the ball hits the fairway!


This may seem very simple, but sometimes why should it not be simple?  Give this a go an post your comments, this works every day with our students.  Enjoy.

      Hi Jordan. The first thing you need to check is the grip. Your hands may be in a strong position on the club. If you go through the Fault Finder in the “create a plan” section and go to the “Fixes” th…

    Can you offer any tips to a 3-cap on swinging (driver) within yourself? I get the sense that under tournament pressure I begin to lose control of swing speed both in backswing and downswing.

    1. Andy Proudman

      The key thing to think about is where you miss is also? How is your pre shot routine and what do you focus on when under pressure?
