THE IMPORTANCE OF SIMPLE TEE SHOTS
I've had an effective PGA Tour profession, including a couple of wins, by keeping things as basic as could reasonably be expected. However, in the various pro-ams I play, I notice ordinary golf players will in general make things more entangled than they should be, and their games endure. One region to rearrange is off the tee. For beginners, it's the most basic some portion of the game to keep away from huge numbers. Keeping it simple will bring about better consistency, which permits you to give more consideration to your methodology shots and short game. Here's your first tip: Swing with the idea of putting the clubface on the rear of the ball. This will help shield your body from rushing in front of it, which causes those toey cuts regardless of what club you're utilizing. Peruse on for additional. — With E. Michael Johnson
GET READY FOR TAKEOFF
If we've learned anything over the past decade, its high throw with low turn is key to maximizing distance from the driver. Most everyday players, however, have a negative angle of attack, with some hitting several degrees downward. That makes for a low, spinning tee shot, not very good at producing distance. Here's a simple solution: adjust the height of your tee. The people I play pro-ams with hit the ball too low. You can't hit the ball if it's just an inch off the ground. Hit the tee so that two-thirds of the ball is higher than the crown of the driver (above), and adjust the position of the ball so that it is in line with the big toe of the front foot. Now drop your right shoulder slightly in direction. You can see (below) how this helps to position it properly at impact. These simple steering adjustments will automatically improve your tee shots and are very easy to do.

GROOVE THE RIGHT PATH
Swinging on an in-to-out way corresponding to the objective line is something most beginners truly battle to do in the downswing, however, it's indispensable to reaching. I'm a major aficionado of the Orange Whip preparing help to help with this. With its weighted end and adaptable shaft, the Orange Whip keeps the arms and body moving in the best possible succession for that ideal in-to-out way. For me, it's not about where the club is at some random second. It's tied in with feeling the correct movement. Another key is getting this show on the road chest behind the ball during the backswing. On the off chance that your chest drifts over the ball, you'll probably pitch forward on the backswing, dispensing with any opportunity of being in the best possible grouping in transit down. To help, set your lead shoulder so it's pointing somewhat right (shut) of your objective line at address. It gives you a head start for an in-to-out downswing.
GO SLOW TO FIND SOLID
The most concerning issue I see beginners have off the tee is, they don't reach all the time. In attempting to press the same number of yards as they can out of their tee shots, they lose control of the swing. Their hands and legs are moving everywhere, and there is an excessive number of feelings proceeding to locate the focal point of the face. You have to back it down. An extraordinary drill is to swing a 7-iron at 30 percent of your maximum speed and continue doing that until you're hitting strong shots more often than not. At that point increment to 50 percent, 70 percent, and in the end max throttle. This manufactures the sentiment of controlling your swing. On the off chance that you can't locate the focal point of the face at not exactly half speed, you get no opportunity max speed. You can do this drill with any club, and I think you'll be astonished to discover how far you hit it without swinging out of your shoes. Better tee shots are as basic as that.
