Better Drives

When setting up to a long drive, many amateur golfers position their heads too far ahead of the ball, causing them to swing down onto the ball. Being in front of the golf ball with your head prevents you from bringing full power to bear and will rob your drive of distance and accuracy.

To improve your drive, think about how batters set up for a home run: They strike the ball with their head behind the bat and the ball. At address, set up so that your head is 6-8 inches behind the ball. At impact, you still want your head to be behind the ball so that you can hit athletically and achieve an angle of attack that’s slightly upward.
