Launch it high
A high launch delivers a yard-munching trajectory. At impact, Joe Miller’s driver is swinging upwards at a 10-12º degree angle, launching the ball at around 17º. Miller’s figures are pretty extreme, but if you can raise your launch you can add easy yards. Follow these four steps.
1 PROMOTE LAUNCH THROUGH POSTURE Take your regular driver stance, the ball an inch or two inside your lead heel. Face both palms down towards the ground; they should be at equal heights. CREATE SPINE LEAN Push down with your trail hand till it’s just above your knee, allowing your gloved hand to rise. Your torso now leans away from the target, setting up an upward sweep through impact.
