Wood Game Tip
Many people complain about not being able to hit the ball well with their woods (or metals), and
in particular their driver. From what I've seen poor quality contact is a major problem
for many of these players.
Put a tee in the ground (without a ball) sticking up approximately 1 to 1.5 inches. You should be
able to strike the tee consistently without hitting, or even brushing, the ground at all.
If you miss the tee, or touch the ground in any way, don't wonder any longer why you can't
hit your driver. Remember -- the longer the club, the more precision required. Practice this
exercise until you can consistently clip the tee without touching the ground (or even the grass).
Once you get quality contact handled the feedback you get from your shots becomes meaningful.
Then you can work on directional control.
