How to Hit a Driver in Golf Using Taylor Made Golf Clubs

Filed under: by: golf clubs showcase

Learning how to hit a driver correctly is one of the most important aspects to the game of golf. TaylorMade, one of the premier golf clubs manufacturers, designs drivers for the novice player who plays once a year, and for experienced players who make a living playing the sport. With enough practice, you can learn how to hit a TaylorMade driver long and straight.

Decide which TaylorMade driver you want to hit. Beginners can use the standard Burner driver for increased distance. The Burner Draw driver helps reduce the amount of slice to a swing. The Tour Burner TP driver is for a skilled player and is 2 degrees open. Finally, the r7 driver has adjustable weights and is for players who like to tweak their swings.

Take a few practice swings with your driver with a light grip. Gripping the club too tightly can put too much tension on your wrists and forearms.

Press down with the base of your right thumb onto the top of your left thumb (for a right-handed golfer). This helps keep your hands together during the swing and prevents the driver's club face from opening up on the downswing.

Bend slightly at the knees so you can shift your body weight during your swing. Keep your feet about shoulder width apart of whatever feels natural and keeps your balance.

Point your right elbow down at the top of your backswing. This helps keep the club parallel to your target and helps in hitting the ball straight.

Shift your body slightly toward the target on the downswing. Keep your shoulders square.

Swing straight through the ball, and make sure your arms are pointed at your target after you have made contact.
