Essential Driver Golf Tips For Longer Shots

If you’re having trouble adding long distance to your golf shots, you’re not alone.

Most golfers, regardless of skill level, complain of hitting their shots shorter than intended, with little idea of how to effectively expand the distance of their drives.

Easy Golf Tips for Improved Downswing

Correcting an over the top downswing requires golfers to examine the overuse present in their upper body motion during their golf swing.

Identifying the moment in their golf swing that causes overuse in their upper body will eliminate the common mistake of coming over the top on their swings.

An over the top swing happens when our golf club veers away from the desired swing plane, with the head attacking the golf ball from outside in.

If the clubface takes impact squarely, our shot will be pulled, while an open clubface will cause the the shot to be sliced.

Before we can fix our faulty downswing, we must identify where and how we’re coming over the top.

Pinpointing The Malfunction In Your Downswing

Golfers may be committing a variety of miscalculations while working through their downswing, any of which may be the cause of a sliced or pulled shot

Best Golf Drills For Hitting Irons Pure

No matter how long you search the internet, you will not find a miracle drill that will pure your irons overnight, without putting in the practice to understand the process.

Learning to control your swing and to shallow the club face on the ball can correct one of the biggest flaws in any golfer’s iron play.
