Are you this guy that comes up on the tee
00:06
and you really wanna bust this drive out there,
00:09
and you get in here, and you think this is
00:10
such a powerful position, big old wide stance,
00:13
bent over like you're just gonna really
00:15
knock the heck outta this?
00:17
Well, let me explain something to you.
00:18
You got no chance hitting a good shot from this position,
00:21
and I'll tell you why.
00:23
From this position here, you're too far away from the ball.
00:26
As you swing, gravity's gonna wanna pull you to the ground.
00:29
You're gonna end up standing up, hitting the ball
00:31
off the toe in some kind of weak slice out to the right.
00:35
If you wanna hit a good powerful drive,
00:37
I want you to get in a nice little bit
00:39
of a closed stance position
00:41
where you pull your right foot back a little,
00:43
your hips and your shoulders are aimed
00:45
a little down the right side.
00:46
This'll give you the feeling of coming a little more
00:48
from the inside, hitting the inside of the ball,
00:51
and letting you swing out to the right with a nice release.
00:54
So next time you wanna hit a good one,
00:57
get this little bit of a closed stance,
01:00
get some good rhythm.
01:05
Hoo, I like that one.
