Launch Zone Tip: Ball, Tee or Ground?

Where Does Your Driver Make Contact?

You’re standing on the tee with the driver in your hand with the ball teed up nicely. So which one — ball, tee or ground — are you going to hit? I always ask my students which one they plan to hit, and they say “The ball, of course.” I then ask them, “So why do you hit all three?” 
Too often, on a tee shot, the player sends the tee flying and the dirt spraying.

A simple prop can teach a valuable lesson in hitting solid golf shots

Ball-striking is the term that's commonly used to describe the quality of contact between the clubface and the ball at impact.


In pitch shots — and in all shots, for that matter — there's an important distinction between striking the ball and scooping it. 

Striking occurs with the hands and handle leaning slightly forward at contact with the weight on the left side. Conversely, with a scooping motion, the weight stays back and the player tops the ball or hits too far behind it.
