How'd you like to pick up 20 or 30 yards off the tee without swinging harder? It's possible if you learn to catch the ball on the upswing. The secret to an upward attack angle is the setup. Try this: Hold your driver level across your shoulders with your arms crossed, then take your stance and nudge your hips toward the target so your lead hip is higher than your trailing hip. This will raise your front shoulder, too. Check to see that your driver shaft points to the sky (above). Now relax and lower the club to address the ball as normal. Get comfortable in this setup, and you'll be ready to find even more yards by toying with your new driver's adjustability.
