One of the more important golf swing tips is learn how to determine the ideal tee height for your driver.
If you tee your ball too low, especially with a big-headed driver, you could cause your ball to draw, even if you executed a perfect golf swing.
If you tee your driver too high you could cause your ball to fade or slice to the right. Most likely it would not be a straight golf shot.
Were I to provide golf swing instructions to a golfer, I would ask the student to hit nine golf shots with his or her driver and tee the ball to different heights.
First, I would ask the student to tee the ball so its equator would be even with the top of the driver’s club head.
This has been the preferred golf method taught by numerous instructors to hit the golf ball straight and far.
However, this golf method has been more applicable to the old type of drivers with typically a smaller head.
When using most big-headed drivers, if you lock-in a square alignment of the club face during your set up routine, tee the ball so that the equator of the ball is even with the top of the club head and then execute a simple golf swing without attempting to manipulate the club in some way during the downswing, the ball most likely curve to the right of the target.
Once the student sees the ball slicing to the right when the ball is teed in this manner in relation to the driver he should continue his experiment by next teeing the ball very low when using the driver.
Usually with bigger headed drivers, if you tee the ball very low, the ball will draw or hook to the inside of the body line.
After several swings with the driver teed low and observing a draw or hook ball flight as a result, the student should then tee the driver so that the top of the ball is even with the top of the club head.
Usually with bigger headed drivers with a locked-in square alignment of the club face at final address, a non-manipulative golf swing will produce relatively straight golf shots
If not, however, the student should continue to adjust the tee height for the driver until an ideal height is found and then know the ball should be teed in such a manner thereafter to hit straight golf shots.
The student should then agree that this type of instruction may be some of the best golf swing tips ever.
