How to Catch Drives Flush

This story is for you if…
• Your driver impact feels either
very dead or like you’ve just
made contact with a bowling ball
• You find contact marks out
on the toe and heel sections of
your driver’s clubface
• You slice

THE PROBLEM
You can’t make contact on the
center of the clubface with your
driver, and that’s costing you
distance and accuracy.

HOW YOU KNOW
IT’S HAPPENING

When you hit it off the heel, it’ll feel
like you just hit a brick and the ball
will shoot dead left. If you hit it off
the toe, you’ll feel a soft impact, like
you whacked an old apple.

HOW TO FIX YOUR HEEL
AND TOE HITS

Lay four dowels (or pool cues or even
string) on the ground as shown. The
spaces between the dowels should
be slightly wider than your clubhead.
Address an imaginary ball in the
middle lane. If you tend to hit it off
the toe, take practice swings making
sure your clubhead travels through
the far lane after impact. If you hit it
off the heel (or tend to shank your
irons), your downswing path should
go through the near lane. After 10
practice swings, tee up a ball and
swing away. Now that you’re slotted
correctly, you’ll hit it square and the
same distance every time.
