Tip: When you take a grasp on the handle of your club, make sure not to favor one hand over the other. You shots will lean to the right if you grasp you golf club too tightly.
When you think of a golf driving tip I’ll bet you think of swing mechanics. Am I correct? If so, has it worked? I mean…have you added 10,20 or even 30 yards to your swing taking this approach?
Tip: In any sport like golf your body plays a pivotal factor in your performance. You don’t just use your arms, you have to channel energy from your whole body for a source of true power.
If most of you are being honest you’ll say no. For those of you who have accomplished the above with that approach…congratulations. You are a small percent of the golfing community that is successful.
Tip: It may sound unbelievable, but miniature golf can actually make you a better golfer. The obstacles in miniature golf provide you with valuable practice for developing your short game.
So if a golf driving tip pertaining to swing mechanics isn’t it…what else is left? Well…you’re looking at it if you look in a mirror. It is your physical make-up. What your body is capable of doing at this moment.
All the swing thoughts and golfing tips in the world won’t help if your body can’t physical perform them. And no matter how hard you try…you won’t be successful.
Tip: Even if in a hurry to get started, head to the range and hit a few balls before you take your first shot. Use these practice shots to warm yourself up before a round.
You see…your body needs to move with a certain level of flexibility (fluidity), strength (power) and sequence (body awareness). Most of these qualities dissipate with age. Do you feel as flexible, strong or with great body awareness as you did years ago?
Tip: Line your front foot with the ball when driving. But for other swings, the ball should be at a median point between your right and left foot.
If your answer is no, then you need to take the ‘physical approach’ to hitting your drives longer (and straighter). The more you work on your current physical abilities the easier you will be able to make a sound and repeatable golf swing.
Tip: Therefore, you should stretch prior to every round and make sure to drink sufficient amounts of water. Keeping your body fit will allow you to get the most out of your ability.
You will look back and wish you would have taken this approach years ago…but it’s NEVER too late! You can improve your physical capabilities well into your 80’s if you are willing to put a little bit of effort into it.
The areas you need to focus on are rotational strength and flexibility; posture and spinal strength; and hamstring/low back muscular endurance (flexibility).
Focus on these and you will see dramatic improvements in your driving distance and accuracy.
This is my golf driving tip that will change your game forever!
