Here is a quick golfing tip on the proper set up in using the golf driver from to teaching pro Bobby Eldridge. Bobby teaches “The Simple Golf Swing”.
Let`s listen to Bobby…
I often see a number of amateurs prepare for their driver golf swing by walking up, after they have teed the ball up, they just take a step back and they address it. They grip the golf club and they address it, and they sort of just plot their feet down wherever they land, but let me tell you the proper way.
This way you’ll be able to get the ball in the correct position more often than not. After you have the golf ball and you’ve gripped it and you have addressed it, then you’ll just look down, take a peek down, and if this golf ball is running towards the left heel, then this is correct.
If you look down and you see the golf ball is a little too far forward off your left, that’s too far forward and you’ll probably see that the shoulders are aimed too far to the left.
On the other hand, if you look back down and you think the ball is too far back in your stance when you put this shaft along you, you’ll be aiming way off to the right.
So, after you’ve addressed the golf ball, all you have to do to get ready for your driver golf swing is bring the shaft up and lay it along your shoulder line, and it should be going in the direction you want to go with it.
If you get it too far back in your stance at address, you’ll wind up aiming your shoulders too far off to the right.
And if you get it off the left heel, this should be proper for most people.
Golfing tip on the proper set up in using the golf driver… give that a try the next time out.
