Golf Swing Instructions: How to Drive A Golf Ball Straight

golf swing instructionsThe best golf swing instructions are to learn how to drive your golf ball straight.

I know of no more significant golf swing instructions than to drive your ball as straight as an arrow down the middle of the fairway.

If you do not know how to drive a golf ball straight you cannot play a quality round of golf.

Most would agree that the driver is the most difficult club to hit in terms of producing  a straight drive. Even robots like the historic Iron Byron produced a significant amount of dispersion when hitting drivers,

Considering all the dispersion associated with the driver and the difficulty of swinging the longest club in the set, what then is the most reliable way of hitting straight golf shots?

You will not find the solution in golf magazines or on the Golf Channel because the typical instruction to hit a ball straight is to first stand to the ball in a certain way with a specific posture and the ball placed in a precise manner in your stance.

Then the instruction turns to manipulating the club to the inside or to the outside of the target line in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact.

If your posture, ball placement or stance is not perfect, the ball will not fly straight. Likewise, it suggests that if the club is not swung in the precise manner instructed, the clubface will not square itself to the ball at impact.

THIS DOES NOT SOUND VERY ENCOURAGING

TO DRIVE A GOLF BALL STRAIGHT

The best golf method is to lock-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of your clubface during your pre-shot proceedings, setup correctly to your ball and simply execute a regular golf swing. If locked-in correctly, your clubface alignment and its swing path will remain locked-in during your setup proceedings irrespective of your stance or posture to your ball.

They also will remain locked-in during your golf swing.

Once locked-in, all that is required is to center the sweet spot of your clubface directly behind your ball, assume a comfortable posture and stance to your balland align your shoulders parallel with your target line. Then keep your head steady and execute a simple golf swing.

Then watch one drive after another fly on a

straight path down the middle of the fairway.
