Steve Bishop says:

There are more ways to reduce backspin than hitting up on the ball.

USMCMondoGecko says:

hit the f ii n ball.

signoffs says:

I watched this video then went and played probably had my best game off the
tee I’ve ever had…apparently my placement was way off. I hit consistently
straight w/ a little fade about 180-200 yds…I’m thinking I need a stiffer
shaft. But anyway…thank you…improved my game in the matter of a 10 min

Steve Bishop says:

Why do you think I sliced it?

scarface24n says:

cant wait to take these tips out on the range, thanks.

juandavinci says:

nice tips Steve. Thank you for taking the time to produce this video

Steve Bishop says:

I let it ground during the setup. Check out my pre-shot routine video to
see why.

habs36 says:

Great tip. I was slicing my driver and 3 wood and then went to my 7 iron
swing, and hitting 300 yards. TaylorMade RocketBallz 3 wood rocks. Hitting
it as long as my R11

rcminit109 says:

Whenever i hit my driver, it gets no lift. i dont know if its the tee
height or my swing. plz help.

harveynix says:

my driving is so mutch better thnx !

demo1312 says:

try addressing the ball, with the ball a little closer to the front foot .

Steve Bishop says:

@redbull23952395 Just remember that the clubface makes the ball go up in
the air. Even with the driver you do NOT need to hit up on the ball. Just
brush the tee out of the ground, forget the ball.

RKD0110 says:

Steve, Nice instructions as always, very basic, easy to understand. Do you
advocate hovering the clubhead on all the clubs in the bag or just the

Ryan Flaherty says:

Great Video…I am hitting two yards behind the ball…I do not even notice
I do it do you have any videos to help correct that..I mean my club hits
the ground..I kill my three iron even doing so but my driver has gone to
heek since I have been doing it..

jeff5was5here says:

thats a damn heavy couch

jordan peck says:

you forgot to mention something very important about set up for a driver.
if you hover the club with the ball in the middle of the face, and let it
drop, the ball will always fall towards the toe end. many good drivers tee
the driver off the toe. this is only if you dont wish to hold the club up
for very long

hamadeha says:

Good stuff! Thanks Steve!

starling5 says:

its great advice but with golf im a better learner when i see the hit not

M@ says:

which pixel is the driver?

John Kilkenny says:

For me, probably the best explanation of how to approach driving the ball I
have seen on Utube. Follow this and you can’t go far wrong.

Bill Bixby says:

10 bucks says he sliced it

zecks08 says:

I just started playing and the clubs i have are the 2,3,4,5,7,9 irons.
theyre used and im a tall guy, 6′ 1″. i top the ball alot, ive been bending
my knees and it helps, but my knees and legs are damaged. Would longer
clubs work better? any tips for a beginner? thank you

Steve Bishop says:

@jdheelfan Either more swing speed or heavier clubs.

Martyn Lee says:

The tip about checking the correct spine angle at address by holding the
shaft from the chin is an absolute pearl. Thanks Steve you’re a clas act

hanzosan says:

that ball position tip really helps, i am right handed and slice right,
because I impact too early in the swing.

ricky davis says:

good vid thanks man

AbundantFun444 says:

Hey, I’m a scratch golfer, a senior in high school and lately I’ve notice
my ball start slicing. I was told to stand closer but this doesn’t help. My
driver hasn’t ever been fit, no place for miles and its too long, about
48.5″. My arms hanging to floor is 37″. Should I either stick with my swing
but grip down lower on the grip, stand back further, or something else.
Please, i need help. I have a huge tournament soon!!!

AbundantFun444 says:

@RingerDaMan : OMG thank you! I fixed my swing. 🙂 I’m hitting it 290yrds
dead straight. I shot a 69 at Woodside Meadows Golf Course in Michigan.
First time ever 3 under par for 18 thx times a million

Steve Bishop says:

@ThePuzzler96 Yes, your path is going way out to the right. The ball will
always curve away from your path during impact.

jccree17 says:

puzzler, first i would say to get a lesson with someone so that they can
see and fix ur swing. my advice about your drive is to make sure your club
face isnt open and that feet knees hips and shoulders are aligned parallel
to where you are aiming the club face so that u are swinging throught the
ball and not across it; therefore putting spin on the ball and slicing it

thelakersforlife says:

I see everyone shoots 12 under and drives 470 in here.

AbundantFun444 says:

@imwrittingmyname October 28-31 at Olivos Golf Club and Buenos Aires Golf
Club in Argentina. sry for posting late, busy… leaving tonight wish me
well, got new driver, taylormade supertri, new irons, callaway 09 forged
(Highly recommend for low handicaps), and new wedges– taylormade rac good
for price and playability. Last, cannot do anything without the scotty
cameron!! Need them birds and eagles

bens grandad says:

hey mister redbull try a stiffer shafted driver -i did exactly the same
when i bought a club with too whippy a shaft- the club head cant catch up
with your swing and you are lifting before the club hits the ball -worked
for me -good luck


P.S. Don’t think too much about spine tilt. Just make sure your head is
slightly behind your hands at address. If your clubface is open after
trying these things, either your grip is way off or you are pressing your
hands too far foward.

Michael Barnett says:

Ringer, Good stuff as always. Always good to see some of the things you
tend to forget when hitting the big stick.

Hugh Jorgan says:

thank you for the tips. the hand positioning being constant is of great
help. I was actually able to use my 3 hybrid and drive it 220 yds! thanks!


Best driver video. Period. Everything is covered if you pay attention.
Thanks Steve beautiful swing also.

Cockney Boy68 says:

Great video, have struggled with Driver. Great tip re spine tilt away from
target, this is also covered in Videojug clip. Good tip re stance width and
idea of lifting a settee, also ball height on tee.

jim luna says:

good swing thourght for the driving range and on course…

Khaled COO says:

hey ,if anyone else trying to find out best golf swing instruction try
Barkola Amazing Golf Blueprint (just google it ) ? Ive heard some
extraordinary things about it and my friend got amazing success with it. 

Richard Workman says:

Probably the most straightforward explanation of swing dynamics out
there.Excellent video. 

Jancen says:

I really need some help on my driver swing. The biggest problem is my
follow thru and finish. When I practice swing, a have a good follow thru
and finish and I can hear the swoosh on my driver. However, when there is
a ball in front of me, I decelerate big time before impact and I stop my
swing right after impact with the shaft parallel to the ground. No
complete finish no matter how hard I try. Just wondering if you can help
me on this.
