  • Drive goes straight, then right when it starts descent

    Just started playing golf this year, I have just developed a problem and I am wondering what I can do to correct it. I have search the threads but I do not see one for the issue I am about to describe.
    I am using a 10.5 degree driver, I normally hit the driver very straight but not very much distance around 200 to 210. Just recently I started hitting all my clubs further, I believe the extra distance came from repetition of swinging clubs and adding more speed to my swing. When I started getting more distance from my driver I was really pleased, I was getting 240 to 250 yards and was really pleased with my improvement, but my last golf outing I developed a problem with my driver and I do not know how to fix it. Since finding my extra power I have been getting high trajectory on my drives, since I was getting distance I was fine with it, but my last outing the ball is coming off the tee straight and continues straight towards the target until the ball starts to descend, then it bares off to the right. I am missing fairways and have found the woods a few times. During the round I adjusted by aiming left , I figured I would read up on how to fix it and then head to the driving range to implement what I learned, but I am not finding anything online to describe what I am doing. I hope I have discribed what is happing to me enough to get some help. Thanks in advance and I look forward to the post.

    Look up the 'D' plane in golf. This will enlighten you to the new ball flight laws that explain how ball flight is affected by clubface angle and swingpath.

    If your ball takes off straight then curves to the right it suggests that your clubface is square at impact as this is the factor that decides the initial ball flight, your swing will be a little outside to in as this is what creates the clockwise spin that is fading the ball right.

    You will need to strike the ball with the clubface slightly open and hit a little in to out for the ball to start right and draw back to the middle. For a straight shot you need to make impact with the clubface pointing to target and the swingpath moving from inside back to inside.

      No matter how good you are at golf or how good you want to be, knowing how to drive a golf ball straight is as crucial as any part of the game. There are very little golf courses around the world that start with a Par 3 and so you will usually be reaching for the big stick as your first shot. You will also know, or will soon find out, that this is the shot that can determine your whole round as a good one with a drive down the middle or your confidence being up in flames as the ball finds the trees. This is why this could be a valuable piece of information I am going to give you.cheap golf clubs

            Darngood ,,,dont know what adjani,s problem is,,,,, but golf instruction is a visual thing , I have yet to see a swing built on words yet , you can try all these tips but you might fix one problem only to create another ,,,,I am an certified instructor and know visual is the way to go ,,,,I myself take lessons only because I cannot see myself swing when something goes wrong. And its usually something totally different than what i predicted ,,,good luck dagoos
