1. Setup

When taking your address, keep things relaxed and simple. Some important points:

  • To aim accurately, sole the clubhead behind the ball and point the face at your target, then set your stance perpendicular to the face.

  • With a driver, play the ball just inside your front foot. That, combined with a slight tilting of your upper body away from the target, will promote a high launch.

  • Stay loose by keeping your arms and legs in motion as you stand over the ball. Good drives come when you maximize your freedom of motion.
