In his research studying millions of amateur and professional shots, Mark Broadie also noticed that not only do tour players hit farther than amateurs…they also hit twice as straight.
The main thing I want to share with you about hitting the driver straight it to minimize the amount of club face rollover in the swing, in particular a foot or so on either side of impact.
Take a look at these screenshots of PGA Tour player Peter Uihlein. He’s hitting an iron here, but you can see that his clubface is, for the most part, square to his swing path through impact.
I’m not sure why, but it’s been very popular for many years to teach people to rotate the club face 90 degrees around the shaft…
