HOW TO BEAT THE STEEP

Golf Digest Middle East - - Play Your Best Driving -

There are lots of ways to hit a bad tee shot, but the most com­mon one for am­a­teurs is “throw­ing” the club out and away from the body at the start of the down­swing. That causes a steep chop on the ball. All the tech­nol­ogy in the world won’t stop the shots that re­sult—a slice or a big pull.

To pre­vent a steep down­swing, you need to feel the op­po­site sen­sa­tion. Feel your right el­bow mov­ing straight down from the top and rid­ing your right hip through im­pact ( ). That’s a great way to swing the driver into the ball on a shal­low, sweep­ing an­gle.
