Question? Where is your ‘Driver Ball Location’? Teed-Up how high? Student Answer: “Driver ball location is just inside the left heel. I do tee it up higher now than I did previously. I want to hit the ball on the upswing.”
Let me see if I can make quick sense herein? How much teed-up ball is above the Driver Head Top Plate? Think of the simple science. Every golf swing has a ‘Bottom Of Swing Arc’ (BOSA). In generality, this BOSA is where the sole of the golf clubhead ‘Pinches The Grass’. We are familiar with this ‘Location In 3 Dimensional Space’. All our ‘Non-Teed-Up Balls’ are struck there! Why get cute or difficult with the Driver? When people tee the ball up in the Driver situation, they SHOULD HOVER THE CLUBHEAD so the Sweet Spot matches the ‘Ballistic Target’. (BIC … Bottom Inside Cheek’) Efficient but quite challenging! How do I know this difficulty to be true? Top plates of so many Driver heads are all beat up! We call these ‘Rosies or Rosettes’. When using this very teed up ball, ‘Inside Heel’ location, we unnecessarily suffer a lot of ‘Fat Thins’. This is proof of a lack of stability.
