Driver Ball Position

PurePoint Golf Instruction – Driver Ball Position – Driver Golf Swing

I often see a number of amateurs prepare for their driver golf swing by walking up, after they have teed the ball up, they just take a step back and they address it. They grip the golf club and they address it, and they sort of just plot their feet down wherever they land, but let me tell you the proper way.

This way you'll be able to get the ball in the correct position more often than not. After you have the golf ball and you've gripped it and you have addressed it, then you'll just look down, take a peek down, and if this golf ball is running towards the left heel, then this is correct.

If you look down and you see the golf ball is a little too far forward off your left, that's too far forward and you'll probably see that the shoulders are aimed too far to the left.

On the other hand, if you look back down and you think the ball is too far back in your stance when you put this shaft along you, you'll be aiming way off to the right.

So, after you've addressed the golf ball, all you have to do to get ready for your driver golf swing is bring the shaft up and lay it along your shoulder line, and it should be going in the direction you want to go with it.

If you get it too far back in your stance at address, you'll wind up aiming your shoulders too far off to the right.

And if you get it off the left heel, this should be proper for most people.

Give that a try the next time out.

What separates the worst NFL team from the greatest college team?

I just do not see it. Sorry. 2001 Miami's lines could have competed in the NFL and this year's Alabama is legit.

If it comes down to the interior lines, I am not buying it.

The NFL is a bit overrated in my opinion. All their players come from the college ranks--or at least most of them--so why do they think their teams are so superior?

Best Answer...


You keep asking these questions about whether or not a college team could compete in the NFL, which makes me think that either you're 12 years old, or you have some type of mental handicap.

The 2001 Hurricanes could not have competed in the NFL, nor could this year's Alabama. For Miami, outside of Bryant McKinnie on the offensive line and Vince Wilfork on the defensive line, nobody else made ANY type of impact in the NFL. But at the end of the day, Ken Dorsey was their QB, and that would spell doom for that team in the NFL.

Now take Alabama. Can't use players from this year's team, since none of them have ever competed at the NFL level. But you can use players from the last couple of years. Alabama has had a number of early round draft picks, and guess what, most are struggling. Mark Ingram, Terrence Cody, Mark Barron, Rolando McClain, Javier Arenas, etc.

If the best players from the best team basically has nothing but a bunch of marginal NFL players, that team isn't going to be able to compete, and you should quit lying to yourself into believing such nonsense.
