Hit Your Driver Straighter Than Ever!I take a unique grip and make a shorter backswing than most of the guys on Tour. Follow my lead and you'll enjoy the same payoff: more fairways and a lot more birdie chances.
By Anthony Kim, Ryder Cup Star
As you can guess, the Ryder Cup was a breakthrough event for me, but I really didn't do anything special. Regardless of whom I was playing against or the format of the match, I focused on making the same swing that got me to Valhalla in the first place moves I beat into my muscle memory at an early age on the ranges of Southern California. I've always been a bit smaller than my competitors, so my swing emphasizes squeezing as many yards out of my driver as possible. But that's just half the story: my primary concern is accuracy it's not very often you make birdie from the rough. Copy my accuracy keys on the following pages (and heed the advice provided by my coach, Adam Schriber) and you'll hit drives that consistently find the fairway.
