Here’s what some of golf’s greatest players and teachers say about making contact with the ball "from the inside" and on the upswing…
"Attack the ball from inside the target line and hit up on it. This path will produce the high, drawing ball flight I prefer."
- Jordan Spieth, 3-Time Major Championship Winner
"If you want to maximize distance with your driver, you've got to hit up on the ball."
- David Leadbetter, Golf Digest's "50 Best Teachers in America" (Rank: #4)
"Create speed and a better position to swing up on the ball, which you should do with the driver to maximize carry."
- Justin Thomas, Major Championship Winner
"The driver is the only club you want to hit slightly on the upswing."
- Tiger Woods, 15-Time Major Championship Winner
"That upswing hit creates a high launch…you'll get more carry."
-Butch Harmon, Golf Digest's "50 Best Teachers in America" (Rank: #1)
"Contact the golf ball on an upward angle…It can make a huge difference in distance."
- Kellie Stenzen, Golf Magazine Top-100 Teacher
