LET Professional Amy Boulden shows us the fundamentals of driving the ball

Driver tips from Amy Boulden

Amy Boulden shows you how to improve your driving by checking the fundamentals before we hit the ball.

She uses an alignment stick to check she is aiming  at the place she wants to. She places the ball in-line with her left heel and keeps her weight central. She also uses a camera to record her swing or gets her coach to give her feedback so she knows if she is doing the fundamentals correctly.

Once the fundamentals are correct, it is much easier to hit a good golf shot. Hopefully these tips and drills will push your game to the next level.
