Friday Swing Tip: Get your set up right to optimise your golf shots.
One of the fundamentals for any golfer is to get their set up right in order to have the best chance to optimise the ball strike and to maximise the distance.
Remember the golden rule of ball striking: Use a descending strike when hitting irons and an ascending strike when using your driver.
This video concentrates on the set up when playing the tee shot with a driver .
Firstly set the ball up just inside your left heel (for a right handed golfer) and grip the club how you like to.
Star Tip : Then once your set up, feel like the head and chest tilt away from the target by lets say 5%. This will make your low point an inch or so behind the ball.
With this adjusted low point, by the time you make contact you will naturally be hitting up on the golf ball.
For those of you that like data from launch monitors you want you the attack angle to be a positive or + number.
In addition to hitting up, to increase distance you need to increase ball speed. PGA Tour Pro’s generate a ball speed of 170 + mph to achieve their carry distances of +/- 300 yards.
Simple Fact: The faster the ball speed the further the distance. Look out for Jack’s lesson on “How to increase ball speed tip”
