Golf Tips on Driving

Envision “Swing” the Driver Instead of “Hitting” the Ball

Most of us have suffered the experience of taking a good, smooth swing as we address the golf ball, then step up to the ball and our swing instantly falls apart.  Why is it that once we put an object (a golf ball) in front of us it causes such a enormous variation in our golf swing basics?  The reason for most of us is that when the ball is the target, we hit at the target with no regard for all of the golf swing keys we trained ourselves to do at ball address.  The following points we’ll discuss in this blog are some important golf tips on driving a golf ball further and with more consistency.


Of course the objective is always to hit the ball cleanly, and nothing else matters without solid contact on the ball.  But it is nearly impossible to hit the ball solidly on a regular basis without a well-coordinated golf swing.  And one thing that will take from that smooth golf swing we so wish:  muscle tension.  So now we will go into a few factors to key on prior to, throughout and following striking a shot that may help to focus on the entire swing and relieve our tension we have when we move toward ball impact.

Our Golf Tips on Driving Start with a Proper Grip

1.    Golf grip.  By sustaining a unvarying pressure for which you apply on the golf club, you can eradicate the inclination to grip harder as you approach your ball.  Increasing the tension in your grip is going to cause the club head to slow down, decreasing yardage and triggering the club face to hit a shot at varying angles.

2.    Loosen up your jaw.  Tension frequently begins in the jaw and clenching our teeth before striking the golf ball.  The tension is sent throughout the body, causing us to flail at the golf ball as opposed to swinging through it using a smooth stroke.  Practice swinging with your mouth slightly open in the course of the golf swing, which will lead to reduced tension being transferred throughout the body.

3.    Constant breathing.  As we tense up, we usually shorten our breath.  Anybody who’s had a hard time speaking before a group knows the feeling.  So it will be imperative to keep breathing normally, and with this I mean gradually exhaling in the course of the entire golf swing.  It won’t be easy to do at first if you aren’t accustomed to doing it, therefore practice while hitting at the driving range.  Make sure you slowly exhale when you swing through the golf ball.  You will find it almost impossible to tense up if you do not interrupt your exhaling.

Staying relaxed throughout the swing is easier said than done, however by employing a few easy techniques you may soon be incorporating it into your swing.  Once you relieve the tension within your swing, you will see that your ball will fly straighter with more consistency, but you will increase your club speed, and therefore your yardage.
