Golf Swing Tip: Give Yourself a Good Lie at the Driving Range Like Jason Day

Posted by GolfTipEditor | | , ,

Symptom:  Despite sweat and diligence at your local driving range, you are not able to make much progress towards a better swing.  You find that your range sessions leave your clubs dirtier, the turf a bit more chewed up, your pocketbook a bit lighter, but your game is still about where it was when those striped balls came crashing down into your range bucket...

Description:  Make sure you give yourself a good lie for every shot you hit at the driving range.  If there is no decent grass anywhere in sight, tee the ball to an appropriate height for each club.

Why it works:  Small variations in the lie of the golf ball on the ground make a big difference in the sort of shot you can hit.  Most golf courses have excellent grass in comparison to most driving ranges, so your driving range practice should account for this.  Even the pros can't hit good shots out of divots in the fairway, so why would you expect to? 

Productive golf practice is all about consistency, and you give yourself a big boost in consistency by taking the condition of the turf out of play by giving yourself a perfect lie for each and every shot.  With a good pre-shot routine and a perfect lie you can work on your swing with much more confidence.

And please, please hit down on the ball so you take a divot each and every time, like Jason Day does here:
