How To Drive For Show

graphic headline text for drive show golf coaching

When you are stood over a tee shot with Driver in Your Hand…

Do You think about Duffing It?

Would you like to stop slicing or hooking the ball?

Maybe you take three off the tee more than you’d care to remember!

Would you like to add distance to your drives and hit them longer and straighter, more often?

Don’t Despair – Whatever result you currently achieve


Welcome to Drive for Show

Consistently hitting long drives and splitting the fairway is a high priority on anyone’s wish list. 

The aura and sense of achievement that surrounds good drives somewhat overshadows other elements of the game. 

The fact is driving off the tee accounts to about 25% of your game and if the ball isn’t in play its tough to improve your scores. 

With this in mind, my first goal was to portray my swing beliefs and share with you important information I have accumulated in my role as a Professional Golf Coach.

Being able to hit the driver well requires a quality action and great timing.

When you hit a golf ball, one thing always remains constant and that is the 5 Laws and these represent how the club head is delivered to the ball at impact.  

These laws are what cause the ball flight and spin.

  • Law 1 – Club head path though impact
  • Law 2 – Angle of attack
  • Law 3 – Club face angle – open, square or closed
  • Law 4 – Strike on club face heel, center or toe
  • Law 5 – Club head speed

If we therefore work on improving these Laws by changing how the club is travelling around your body it will improve the ball flight.

I believe each position during the swing is only as good as the position or movement that has gone before it.  Linking these positions seamlessly together and creating a powerful, rhythmical and free flowing swing.

As you travel on your journey to improving your own game with Drive For Show, be assured I will be with you in spirit and also continuing my journey in the search to find more ways to make this wonderful game easier to play throughout all its facets.

Good luck and happy driving

Aiming The Right Direction

As the driver is very long in length it can be quite difficult to align the face and your body correctly, as the ball is a good distance away from you causing your optics to change.
