Cristie Kerr's Driver Setup (Video)

This short clip is from Cristie's driver special on Golf Channel Academy that aired Tuesday night. The way she sets up is so simple that I wanted to post it here.

Here's what she does:
  • To start, with both feet together, she positions herself so the ball would be right in center of her stance. Just draw a straight line from between her feet and the ball is THERE.
  • Since she's righthanded, she turns her left (lead) foot slightly toward the target. Note that she doesn't step toward the target with her lead foot, she just pivots it on her heel.
  • She steps back with her right (trailing) foot and stands so her weight is pretty even on each foot.
And that's it, folks. This position puts her upper body just slightly behind the ball, which will let her hit up on it, just like you're supposed to do with your driver. And because her right hand is lower on the club than her left, she automatically tilts her spine slightly behind the ball.

It really doesn't get much simpler than that. And Cristie's success with her driver proves it works. It's a good way to develop a consistent stance and ball position with the driver, and it doesn't take a lot of fidgeting to get it right.

  1. Her left arm gets bent to increase length of backswing because of limited rotation on backswing. Her foot comes up at impact because she is more forward and is having to push out of the ground to make room for arms and club into impact
