How to Hit a straight tee shot in golf
This video clip shows you how to hit a straight tee shot in golf. There are two parts to this shot. There is the swing path and the face direction. Using a line of golf balls as illustration the demonstrator shows you the path that the head of the club should take as it approaches the ball. Just before impact the head will square up and look in the direction of the target impact. This is called the face direction. There are thus two aspects to a straight shot. The path must be in the correct arc, and the face must hit the ball facing the target direction. After the club hits the ball, it continues on the arc and pulls back inside again. If the club does not follow the arc then it will hit push the ball either to the left or to the right. The thing that stops a golf ball going straight is side spin. 10, 11 and 12 drivers are usually hit straighter than 8, 9 and 10 drivers and so it is good to keep this in mind when choosing a club.
