Derek Nannen, of Eagle Mountain in Scottsdale, Arizona, has a great tip for golfers looking to practice their driving. One thing that is very common with golfers is that they will go to the range and hit the same club all the time. Whether that is a driver or the trusty 7 iron, they don’t let go of them. Derek Nannen shows us a great driving range tip! He recommends mixing up the clubs you use and setting up two stations to practice.
Station One: Fundamentals
At the first station, Nannen recommends focusing on fundamentals like posture, setup, and ball position. He also suggests using the “three tees” drill to help you hit the middle of the club face.
The three tees drill involves setting up three tees in a row, and swinging through them. If you hit the middle tee, you know you’ve hit the middle of the club face. If you hit the outside tee, you know you’ve hit the toe of the club. If you hit the inside tee, you know you’ve hit the heel of the club.
Station Two: Mental Side of the Game
At the second station, Nannen recommends focusing on the mental side of the game. He suggests choosing a different target and walking through the entire process, from setup to execution to evaluation.
