The pros make it look easy, but driving the golf ball down the fairway is no easy feat for any golfer. So, what’s the key to maximizing your ball speed and carry distance? It all comes down to having center point contact on your driver with every swing. With IMG Academy's How-To Become a Better Golfer videos, our coaches focus on tips and techniques to perfect your overall golf game.
In this video, you will be introduced to three driver drills to become a better golfer. Notice how the student-athlete performs each drill as well as the instruction on how to hit your driver further. Each of these golf drills uses simple aids such as foot spray or an empty sleeve of golf balls to help focus on improving ball contact with your driver:
3 in the Middle
Learn the 3 in the Middle drill, which focuses on the importance of achieving center face contact with your driver to maximize ball speed. In the 4 Quadrant drill, the focus is on learning to feel the different parts of the driver face, ultimately resulting in center face contact. Finally, the Upslope drill shows how to hit up on the driver and increase your positive attack angle.
