Golfing has its basics just like anything else, and in order to get the most distance and accuracy out of your driving you need to execute the basics. There are many things to remember when addressing a golf ball on the tee, but here are five that you should always keep in mind.

1. Keep your eye on the ball. You have seen it as the punch line to many jokes, but keeping your eye on the ball helps you to make a better impact and it help you to keep your upper body down when you swing. If you allow your eyes to follow the path of your golf club, then your chances of success are low.

2. Your swing should be one consistent speed and one consistent motion. A good golf swing off the tee is the same speed on the backswing as it is on the follow through. Golf is all about rhythm, and if you fail to establish good rhythm on the tee then you will have problems throughout your entire game.

3. It seems contrary to the principles of golf, but when you are ready to swing then just go ahead. Many people think themselves out of a good drive by standing over the ball entirely too long to think and re-think their shot. When it feels like you are ready, then go ahead and swing.

4. If you are right handed then make sure you keep your left arm straight through the entire swing, and vice versa if you are left handed. When you allow that arm to bend you are creating a baseball style swing, and when that happens you can not have any control over where your ball will go.

5. Finally, make sure that you are shifting your weight properly when you are swinging the club on the tee. Your weight should shift back on your back swing, and then follow your club through the ball. You can control the shift of your weight by using your hips. When you practice your swing, just try to make sure that your swing is in sync with your hips and you should be shifting your weight just fine.

Follow these tips and you will improve your game.

If you have any interest in golf or even if you’re halfway serious about your game. Then you are intelligent enough to know that to really improve your game you have to measure it. The pro’s are always measuring their game, right from the caddy to the coach. If you sat in front of Tiger Woods and asked, “should I measure my game” what do you think he would say?
