How to Get More Speed and Accuracy Off the Tee

To swing the driver with authority, you must learn to move your body in harmony with the club. In the video above, Titleist staff member Jonathan Yarwood shares how to drive the ball with more speed and accuracy utilizing two non-negotiables:

1. At the top of the swing, get into a shallow position with the club and your lead arm.

  • To do this, you have to start the downswing with your lower body and keep your upper body back.

2. Transfer all the energy you've stored in the backswing into the ball.

  • To do this, rotate your lower body and use your lead leg to "jump out of the shot," an action that helps manage the club face, the path of the swing and the angle of attack.

Practice these two keys and let us know if they help you to hit your drives farther and straighter.
