Used this setup on Wednesday and won C Grade. didn't work today though,.

Although I did hit most of them better, I need to work on the tee height, find that I'm hitting a lot low.

LOFT the real reason for my handicap.

3 rounds with this now - working a treat - not a single drive OB right or left.

Tried it with my 3W and seemed to work too, although I only hit one shot with the 3W.

Used this on the weekend, and even though I haven't played in months this new set up is either a) definitely not for me or B) requires more work. I hit 4 tee shots with this and the result was an almighty duck hook on each resulting in 2 lost balls and 2 wipes! I changed back to my usual set up with my other drives (albeit at towards the end of the round as the duck hooks frightened me) and almost had par, but a very easy bogey on the hardest hole and then two nice pars on the 17/18. 

 

The tee shots in between were with Hybrid and usual swing and couldnt fault them.

Some would say never to try anything for the first time in the course.

I am aware of this and I used to live by this rule, but with limited opportunity to play and practice I am resigned to the fact that it is my only chance to do anything to my golf swing so i'll have to live with the results this creates.... both good and bad!

Toph, Perter Senior sets up this way and has done so all his career. It has worked for him.

Played today at Palmer Colonial. Dropped the loft on my Callaway XR driver from 10 degrees to 9 degrees - high slices returned to haunt me for the first two holes. Went back to 10 degrees and was hitting them straight again.

Average distance is about 210m - shorter than my previous driver (TM R1) by about 10-15m, but I'll take the shorter, straighter, middle of the fairway shots any day of the week.

I tried this set-up down the range tonight with very good results.

 

Found it weird/hard to keep my focus on a spot 3 or 4 inches behind the ball whilst swinging, but that seemed to be the key. A couple of times I reverted to looking at the back of the ball and the shot went to a noticeable fade/slice. He says the body adjusts to the focus point so it shifts forward during the swing. Maybe it does...

 

Might have a couple more practice sessions and give it a try on the course.

That tip might work, but so much of that video is full of crap.

 

The low point of the swing is not underneath the shirt button, more like under the left arm pit.

 

Bringing the driver face to the ball does not open the shoulders, if you have a straight left arm and a flat left wrist and your spine angle is correct that is where the driver wants to be.

 

I will just leave this here:
