Rory Mcllroy) at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. This
week he employed
Callaway Big Bertha driver that lowers his spin rate, is longer,
and has comparable accuracy to his 3 wood. He won twice last
using mostly his 3 wood off the tee, especially
where accuracy was at a premium. He is still working out the
kinks with his new weapon, but his second round 63 shows
the new driver could be a great asset in 2014.
you know that Phil fairs
poorly in driving accuracy despite his annual Tour win(s) and
titles? He was ranked
142 out of 180 players in driving accuracy in 2013.
He hits it long and crooked, putting incredible pressure on the
works, sometimes it doesn't (i.e. #18, US Open, Winged Foot,
2006). This is also why he often chooses the 3 wood.
recent years Tiger
Woods barely hit 1/3 of the fairways. In fact, he

top 100 in driving accuracy. Yes,
you read that right!

improve his driving accuracy. If you are in the trees or rough,
eagle and birdie opportunities disappear and pars
or bogies are the result. Over the course of 4 days, a win
becomes a top 15 finish or worse.
have contended for a long time that if Tiger got into the top
50 in that category, he would win every tournament he entered
by 5 strokes (I am dead serious).
total swing change under the tutelage of Sean Foley in large
part to improve
his driving accuracy. And it has worked. He
was ranked 5th in total driving in 2012 which is a combination
of distance and accuracy, and 17th in 2013. He hit 63% of his
fairways in 2012 and 2013. Quite an improvement!
results: Tiger won 3 times in 2012 and had 5
victories in 2013. He is now second all
time with 79 total PGA Tour victories
- 82) after winning the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational.
is an amazing game in that respect. Tiger and Phil
were once the #1 and #2 best golfers in the world
despite spraying the driver all over the course!
the number of missed opportunities are immense for
these guys (and YOU) when the ball ends up in the rough
or the woods off the tee.
if you are struggling with the driver, you are in good company.
Improvement with that one club will vault your scores to a
new level, and have you eager to return to the course and reach
for it in your bag on most every par 4 and 5.
to improve Your Driver Stats...
a professional Golf Ball Design Engineer,
I have had the privilege of working with top men and women
pro golfers as they tested new ball designs.
testing, particular ball types are matched to their swing types,
speeds, and equipment. Of course the primary club involved
in this testing/fitting is the Driver.
have also worked with over 10,000 golfers (both in person and
via the internet) the past 21+ years through my personalized
instruction. And I can state without a doubt, the most common
complaint I hear from students is:
can't hit my driver", or the more unfortunate,
"I can't hit my driver, so I don't use it anymore".
some point in the history of this game, something went terribly
wrong in regards to one club in the bag, THE DRIVER. This
is particularly true when it comes to weekend or recreational
if we just relax a minute and take a look at some facts, the
driver should be the easiest club to hit in the bag for the
ball sits on a tee, so your lie is always perfect.
It is also very difficult to hit a driver "fat" (striking
the ground behind the ball) as the ball is perched in the
air 1-2" above the turf.
is also not common as there is little offset with the hosel.
The hosel is actually even with or behind the face!
drivers have huge faces with up to 3" of usable area.
The perimeter weighting and lower center of gravity of the
designs are extremely forgiving and assist in getting the
ball airborne compared to designs of just 10 years ago.
shot (trampoline) design of the head/face are
a golfer's best friend if he or she can center the ball
on the sweet spot.
That's the good news. So what's holding back millions of recreational
golfers from having the driver be their best club in the bag? In
my experience, there are several issues.
are swing related, some are alignment related, others are
equipment related; it is a puzzle of sorts that can
be solved with the right information.
So I will
address one common mistake most golfers make with the driver
(and there is an easy fix).
drivers of the ball don't use the club the way it is designed and
can't take advantage of all the incredible engineering in
the club head and shaft that can improve their distance and
lower their scores dramatically.
their driver alignment and set-up position is flawed, particularly
their Club Face to Ball alignment.
most golfers are also not using the correct driver
loft and golf ball for their swing speed.
a saying "If you confuse, you lose" and
that is very applicable to golf. So for this article I am
going to address Club Face to Ball alignment.
second golf ball and loft issue is more individualized
depending on a player's game and tendencies.
drivers these days are incredible with huge, deep faces,
perimeter weighting, generous lofts, and tuned shafts. What
a time we live in if you are a golfer.
a golfer compresses the ball on the dead center of the face,
then he or she can take full advantage of all this technology.
on the dead center of the face can add 10-30 yards vs. a
toe or heel hit for 2 swings of the identical swing speed.
But direct central impact can be a difficult task especially
for recreational golfers.
good news is that many mishits are actually caused before
the club is even swung. So let's look at a simple cause of
mishits that no one ever points out, and my solution.
a golfer addresses the ball, traditional practice is to place
the club head directly behind the ball when the clubhead
is sitting on the ground. In addition, most manufacturers
and instructors recommend that about 1/2 the ball be above
the top of the club face at address. OK, sounds logical,
through impact, centrifugal force is straightening
the arms outwards. Without a compensating move by
the golfer, that once centered club face will now be impacting
the ball more toward the heel of the driver.
took the following photos out in our Swing Lab. Take a look
at my driver below to study the relationship between set-up
and impact. It's quite a reality check:
ball on the right above is not on the sweet spot in the
impact condition. A variety of flight issues will
occur and the golfer will lose loads of distance as the
slingshot effect of the club face is neutralized. What
worst place to impact any club face is on the heel!
can demonstrate this yourself without even swinging the club.
the club head behind the ball on the ground, raise the arms
to the impact position, and look at where it aligns with
the clubface. The ball is now aligned with the heel of
is where you will impact the driver unless you make a compensating
move to back up with the body and/or arms to realign the
clubface. In a 1/2 second downswing, this won't happen, at
least not consistently.
is why most pro golfers address the driver on the outer 3rd
of the clubface. At impact, they will be aligned dead center
to take full advantage of the sling shot effect of the driver
stated, this can mean 10-30 more yards depending on your
swing speed. It will also instantly improve the direction
of your shots. Here, take a look:
is not just theory. A big part of golf ball testing
involves hitting balls with "Iron Byron" type
hitting machines as shown below:
can tell you first hand having set up these machines and
having hit 1000's of balls with them, we align the ball slightly
to the toe of the club at address. This allows for
any stretch of the swing arm assembly through impact.
that's for a heavy steel anchored machine with fixed pins
and joints. Compare that to the stretching of the
arms/shoulders of a human body in the downswing! Is
it any wonder many of us are misaligned at impact?
the take away lesson for your game from this report is:
today's drivers more towards the toe as
at impact the ball will be centered dead on with
the sweet spot of the club face.
combined with the correct golf ball and correct
driver loft add up to maximum distance for your swing
impact footprint on my driver club head below (and similar
marks on my irons) are a result of repetitive impacts on
of the club face. In other words, they are the result of
a repeating golf swing.
will also note that center impacts have not always been part
of my game. Before I discovered The Key To A Repeating
Golf Swing and developed the simple swing method to fully
utilize it, my club face contact was erratic (and so were

am sure you have received many testimonials in
the past but how many within the first
purchased & read your e-book this morning
- as usual, after reading I needed to go to the
practice range to see if it at least worked sometimes
for me before committing any further time - patience
is not one of my virtues.
I hit the ball well & hit what I was aiming
at most of the time that is not the reason for
the first time in my 40 years of golf I felt & knew
at the top when I was in a good position to
hit the ball solidly & could predict the
outcome from the top of my swing.
short, thank you - I now have the new sensation
of the correct feeling at the top - golf is not
a game of perfect but given 5 minutes practice
I am convinced that "simple" is
the answer for the amateur/social golfer to play
good golf without hitting hundreds of balls per
day. - your instruction clears the head of
the thousand thoughts that ruin scores & a
good day out with the boys.
