Golf Tips for Driving Longer

Aug 17, 2007
You are a frustrated golfer. You cannot seem to get a long drive on your shot. You have consulted numerous golfing magazines, sports shop pros, and even the book Golfing for Dummies. As embarrassing as that was, it didn't even work. In fact, nothing seems to work. What should you do?

Don't fret. Improving your drive isn't the most complicated thing on earth to achieve, although at times it may feel that way. There are basically four things that you can do to make yourself a better player in this area. Let's take a closer look at what you need to do.

Change your stance:
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you simply widen your golf stance, you will be more stable. This stability will give you the power you need to swing the club steadily and powerfully.

When you are at the tee box, make sure that you are properly aligned on it. Sometimes a confusing layout of a tee box can throw an even experienced golfer off. Make sure that you are always standing behind the ball and looking right down the fairway. This is by far the easiest way to avoid any stance confusion.

Use your toes to aim at the target:
That's right. If you are left-handed, simply point your right toe right at the target. If you are right-handed, then vice versa is true. This will not only help your balance, but will force your body to take direct aim.

Focus... and then focus some more:
Take your mind off every little thought in your head that does not have to do with hitting this ball the right way. Concentration is absolutely necessary to drive your ball longer. One little uninvited though could throw off your whole game... and you don't want that, do you?

Consider your form:
Do you hurry through your backswing? Or, do you take the club back as far as you possibly can when using a backswing? Which hand do you use more power in when hitting the ball? Do you keep your head still when swinging at the ball? If the things you are trying now aren't working, then you need to tweak or change them, so that you can get something to work right for you. If it is your form that needs to be changed, try some different positions. See what works right for you.

In the case of keeping your head straight when hitting the ball, for example, this will help you to know where the ball is going to be when you hit it. If your head is not steady, your control over the ball is not going to be there.

And lastly, before you get out on the golf course, give yourself a little piece of advice: 'You can do it.' Not only can you drive your ball longer, but you can also have fun when doing so. The more you are relaxed when going to play the game of golf, the better it will turn out for you!
