How to Improve Your Driving!

Aug 17, 2007
Rather you are just beginning, as an amateur in the game of golf or a veteran player; we all wish we could improve our drive. What many of us do not know, is how to go about doing that. There are ways to improve both your drive and your game. However, what most people do not know is that their golf game may be suffering, because they are not using the right equipment.

Many people are in the mind-frame that if the golf club costs a lot of money, it must be the key to a better game. This is not necessarily true. When it comes to the driver the only thing that will help you and lower your handicap, is a club that has been chosen properly, no matter how much it costs.

So what type of club should you be getting?

Well, do your homework and find out which clubs are the best for your abilities. One thing you should be considering is your driver swing speed. This helps you in determining the shaft and the flex of your club.

Next, you have to consider which clubs you need. This will depend on your level of playing abilities. For a beginner, you will likely not even need a driver. A typical beginner set might include three, seven, and nine wood, as well as lob or approach wedge, sand wedge, and the pitching wedge.

A seasoned player with a lower handicap will have the need for a driver, three, five, seven, or nine wood, irons three through nine, and the lob wedge, sand wedge, and pitching wedge.

Overall, having the right clubs, standard or fitted for your specific stature, is important to improving your drive and your golf game.

How to drive the ball farther and straighter

The best way to do this is to practice. Ever hear Practice makes perfect, well this applies in the game of golf as well. You can also improve your drive by implementing some drills designed to improve your stance and swing. For example, look for drills that help you in aligning your hips. There are also drills that help with balance and swing.

You might even consider taking some golf lessons, even if you have been playing golf for a long time. If you simply cannot seem to correct a problem, outside help from an instructor may help in pointing out the things you are missing.

Most people play golf for a relaxing and fun experience, however, if you are upset about your drive or your overall golf game, how can you be having any fun or even relax? Therefore, it is important that you learn how to correct the problems, to make a better golf game that is both fun and relaxing.
