SET UP TO CREATE A POWER LAUNCH
The secret to generating maximum distance is fast clubhead speed and a high launch angle
When I set up to the ball with a driver I’m thinking about two things. The first is setting the body angles I need to create power. The second is forming the solid foundation upon which I can harness that energy. I like to stand as tall as I possibly can with a wide and athletic stance. My knees are bent slightly and my upper body is tilted back a little to keep my head behind the ball, which allows me to fully turn my shoulders. I like the ball well forward in my stance, just inside my left foot. All of these factors combine to help me generate as much clubhead speed as possible.
