Lesson #1 – How to hit your driver straight, accurately and consistently every time you tee up the ball, without loosing distance

This lesson will help you perform a more accurate drive from the tee block, without sacrificing any distance. This lesson will require about 50 golf balls, a practice fairway (driving range or a practice hole etc), your set of golf clubs and a couple of tees.

Firstly, you must warm up by stretching, exercising and hitting a couple of golf balls using either your wedges or short irons. It is important that when you’re warming up you keep yourself focused on the task, so that you improve both your physical and mental abilities. Whilst hitting your practice shots with your wedge, you must ensure that you perform an adequate routine before every shot. The golf routine I adopt can be found in the Golf Tips section of this website.

Now that you have warmed up, you can now trade your wedge for your driver. Go ahead and set-up your golf ball with your golf tee. When setting up the golf ball on the tee you must ensure that you can see half a ball over your driver when you place your driver head is placed on the ground, next to the golf ball. Next, aim for an object down the fairway, set-up your golf stance and ball position and correctly grip your driver. The proper golf stance, ball position and golf grip can be accessed in Golf Swing Fundamentals of this website. Once your stance, ball position and grip is correctly set-up, go ahead and hit the ball with your driver at 25% of the power of your full swing. Continue hitting the golf balls with 25% of your full swing until you hit three consecutive shots to where you were aiming. Whilst hitting your driver at 25% of your full swing, you must ensure that you perform an adequate routine before every shot. Once again the golf routine I adopt can be found in the Golf Tips section of this website.


Once you have consecutively struck three golf balls at 25% of your full golf swing to where you were aiming, increase the power of your swing to 50%. Repeat the aforementioned process until you hit three golf balls to where you were aiming at 50% of your full swing. Once you have completed your three straight drivers at 50% of your full swing, continue this process for both 75% and 100% of your full swing. If you find that it is difficult to hit three consecutive golf balls straight when conducting your full swing, try reducing your swing to either 25% or 50% and repeating the aforementioned process again.

This lesson will train your body to perform each segmental stage of the full golf swing correctly in both the physical and mental aspects of the golf swing. This lesson can be also used for every club in the bag, but is best suited to your driver, fairway woods and long irons.
