Golf Driving Tips – Right Shoulder Low

The famous tee shot.


What are we going to do with it today?

I’m going to show you something really simple. Something I see quite a lot with golfers, is that they are focusing on where the ball is going, rather than what they should be doing when they are making contact with the ball. It’s actually about making straighter shots. We have to start learning to trust ourselves.

Today I’m going to show you a little tip on how to make sure that you are hitting a more consistent tee shot just by this one little tweak.

It’s very exciting to bring out the driver, the boom-boom shot.

I want to show you something that golfers don’t do. I want you to be aware of it, see if you are actually doing it yourself and if you are not, then you want to make sure that you are implementing it.

I’ll show you from a perspective of this side to begin with. When golfers come through to hit a shot, what they tend to do with their right shoulder (we’re talking about right handed golfers, if you are a lefty it would be the opposite) when coming down to make contact with the ball and the right shoulder stays nice and low through the shot, that’s great.

Can you see my shoulder coming through nice and low?

If my shoulder comes up when I hit the ball what do you think is going to happen? You know how you hear about the head lifting up and all that kind of thing. Because when the head lifts, what actually happens is that so do the shoulders. You end up coming around this way. In a golf swing you should be feeling more of this kind of action when you are making contact through here.

When we hit a tee shot we want to make sure (this is for other swings as well, by the way) but we are going to be talking about the driver. When you hit your tee shot with the driver you want to make sure that the shoulder stays nice and low. Just like I was talking about through the shot that you can see right now.

If I am to hit a tee shot, I’ll just do one for you, do a practice swing and all we want to focus on is feeling the shoulder stay nice and low. When we stand over the ball we want to recreate the same feeling. Here we go!

Stand, get set for the tee shot and then we go back and through, if we just hold that finish we can make sure we are in the right position. You can see that the shoulder has stayed nice and low and the left shoulder is high.

Something really simple to do, something so simple that you can just put the club across your body and remind yourself that you are actually doing it the right way.

Very, very simple thing to do to improve you swing.

      Hi Rhonda

      You are very welcome.

      There is a lot to remember in the beginning, but it’s like tennis after you have learned it… It will become automatic over time.

      Only if you practice! But that I know you do.

      Looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday.

      Tiff 🙂

    Hi Tiff,
    Another great tip and at the right time. I am exactly focusing on keeping the right shoulder down at impact! Also getting the right sequence in sync with the hip turn!

    As Rhonda said, so much to remember at the one time!!


    • Tiffany Mika September 22, 2016 at 4:48 pm #

      Hi Carrie

      I must have been reading your mind then?

      Glad you focusing on this. Of course there is alot to remember but when you have ingrained it you don’t have to think about it so much.

      But you do need to get the sequence right.

      Tiff 🙂

    Another tip I cannot wait to use on the weekend – thanks Tiff.

    • Tiffany Mika September 22, 2016 at 4:49 pm #

      Hi Pam

      Thank you and practice it before using it in Comp.

      I always recommend practicing anything new before you apply it a competition.

      Tiff 🙂

  5. Karen September 22, 2016 at 1:53 pm #

    You always make it look so easy, but next time I t off I will have your video in my head. Thanks Tiff

    • Tiffany Mika September 22, 2016 at 4:51 pm #

      Hey Karen

      Well it might look easy, but remember I have hit thousands and thousands of golf balls and then thousands more to get that to work.

      It is just putting in the practice.

      And yes keep the video in your head as well. That will be great visualization for you.

      Tiff 🙂

  6. Pam September 22, 2016 at 4:36 pm #

    A great tip from Tiff! It’s just remembering to do the shoulder, hip turn , correct grip – all at once and in the right order! I feel with your help I’m starting to get there!!~

    • Tiffany Mika September 22, 2016 at 4:52 pm #

      Hi Pam

      I know you have alot to remember at the moment. But that’s what happens when you are refining your swing as we are.

      It will come but the big bonus for you is that now you are more aware of what you need to do.

      And I am excited that you are starting to feel it happening! I love It!

      Tiff 🙂

    Great tip Tiff. One I have always wondered about.


    • Tiffany Mika September 27, 2016 at 12:09 pm #

      Hi Margaret

      It’s been interesting as I have had a number of comments about this one. It’s very effective if you do it right.

      Tiff 😉

    I just watched this now and I feel my drive is the worst part of my game at the moment so I found it really helpful. I am really going to focus on the T shot to try and get that happening. So much to remember!

    • Tiffany Mika September 27, 2016 at 12:21 pm #

      Hey Liz

      The driver is the one that takes the longest to get as it is the longest club in the bag and if the technique is not right it comes up most in that one.

      What you need to focus on is your contact position and making sure you are extending forward through the ball like we have worked on in the clinics first.

      yes there is heaps to remember but one day there won’t be so much, you just have to get yourself to that place.

      Tiff 🙂 😉
