A Golf Driver Tip To Remember
by: Mike Pedersen

Every golfer wants to know the best golf driver tip. I hate to disappoint you but there are many great golf driver tips that could be the key to unlocking monster drives for you. Every month the golf magazines have dozens of tips in them, but none of them get to the root of the problem.

If I were to get the opportunity to write a golf driver tip for a magazine, Iíd say something against the norm. Something teaching instructors wouldnít want to hear. Do you want to know what it is? Itís not some quick fix, because they never work long-term. The ďonlyĒ thing that works long-term is working on you.

Your body has a current level of physical ability. I donít care how many balls you hit at the range; how many lessons you take; and what driver youíre swinging. Hitting the ball further takes an increase in clubhead speed. Period. So hitting more balls or taking more lessons wonít improve this.

The only thing that can improve clubhead speed is strengthening your core rotational strength and flexibility. Your core is the engine to your swing. A weak or inflexible core will not give you the results you are looking for.

The golf swing a turn back and a turn through. Isnít that about as simple as you can make it? If thatís true, why wouldnít you improve your bodyís ability to rotate quicker and more powerfully? This is the ticket to longer drives!

There are many simple, yet effective core rotational exercises you can do in your home, or even office to greatly improve your clubhead speed and driving distance.

Do you want an easy one you can do right in your chair?

Cross your arms in front of your chest. Sit up tall and erect. With a fixed head position, rotate to the right and left slowly. See how far you can go. Do this without stopping. As you feel a loosening of the core, start to rotate faster and faster. Do this 20 or 30 times when you think about it and I guarantee youíll feel it.

Since time is such a valuable commodity, youíve got to get creative. Iíve put together a complete section of my manual that covers simples stretches and exercises you can do right in your chair in your office. You canít get more convenient than that.

I hope I didnít disappoint you with this golf driver tip.
