6 driver setup basics that golfers should *always* check

When a golfer is struggling off the tee, it’s usually because they’re failing to do the driver basics well. Their ball position is back, their weight is forward, and they’re aiming all wrong. The result is a low, spinny slice out to the right. The way you set up your body as your teeing up the golf ball is essential to becoming a good driver of the ball. It all comes down to nailing a few basics in your driver setup, which will allow you to hit longer drives, more consistenty. — Joe Plecker, Director of Instruction, Landings Club, Savannah, Ga., Golf Digest Best in State Teacher

A key to keeping your game consistent is finding a level lie on the tee. Why? Because a tilted lie can affect your ball flight negatively. A ball above your feet will tend to overdraw more; too far below and it’ll have a tendency to drift to the right. Before you tee up your driver, take a few seconds to feel with your feet for the most level lie on the tee box. Once you start looking, you may be surprised how much tilt some tee boxes have.
