TOP TIPS FROM ERNIE'S EX-TEACHER

HOW TO ADD DISTANCE TOU YOUR GAME

Most amateurs are looking for power off the tee. Robert Baker uses a whip to illustrate how best to hit a golf ball off the tee with a driver.

Too many amateurs push their elbow back and push the ball off the tee. This produces very little power.

However if you lead the drive with the elbow like cracking a whip or skimming a stone across water, you will have far more successful results. the elbow comes first and the grip leads the way. The you whip the clubhead through the ball.

As a result you can generate a lot of power from very little effort.
