Golf Tips to Improve Your Driving Accuracy and Distance

This portion of Easy Golf Tips is to provide you with some simple, yet effective golf tips that will improve your driving accuracy and distance. Some people will tell you driving the ball is over rated. Some will disagree. I think it depends on the person. The most important part of the tee shot is keeping the ball straight. It doesn’t matter if the ball travels on 150 yards. 150 yards in the fairway is better than 250 yards out of buonds in the lake.

People love using the driver. It’s fun to take out the “big dog” and rip one. But it’s only fun if you can keep the ball in the fairway, otherwise you want to toss your driver into the woods.

Hitting a Punch Shot

So you’ve found your ball stuck behind a tree in the woods. You have a small clearing but a large branch is keeping you from hitting your normal shot. You need a punch shot. The perfect punch shot is a low trajectory shot that will allow you to gain maximum distance by keeping the ball low to the ground. In today’s Golf Tip we will discuss how to hit a proper punch shot.

When hitting a punch shot you want to select a low lofted club like a 4 or 5 iron to help minimize the height of the ball once you hit it. To his a punch shot you will need to place the ball in the back of your stance. You will want to choke down on the grip just a little bit so the club is not fully extended from your hands.

When attempting a punch shot it is best to use a hand position that is known as the forward press. This simply means your hands are pressed forward in front of the ball. You will want to take a half to three-quarters swing and a half to three-quarters follow through after striking the ball.

Punch shots are ideal in shallow rough and pine straw from the woods. Do not attempt a punch shot from the deep rough because it is harder to control and likely you will chunk it.
