    So I have been hitting my driver very bad lately, and It's been pulling left a lot. Well, I watched a video about how the driver should sit on the bottom closest to you. What I have been doing is leveling out the club head on the ground. I noticed I hit it very long and consistently straight when I tried resting the club head on the lower left of the driver (Right handed golfer). Why is it that this slight adjustment is improving my hitting remarkably? Was I delofting the club somehow by resting the driver head in the middle position? I also noticed that my hands relax and dangle more by doing this.

    Maybe it looked straight to you, but was actually set-up a bit closed. Doesn't really matter now since you've found a set-up that you are very relaxed with and it works for you.

    Hi Joe. If you are hitting it straight and long, just keep doing what you are doing. I will always go for function over form. If your club head at address is unorthodox, who cares. What really matters is that it works.

    If you want to know exactly what is going on with your swing, why don't you see a golf pro.

    In my case, I have tried to gain distance with my driver by doing countless things: changing my swing, stance, posture, etc.

    However, nothing has worked and although I hit it longer, dispersion is all over and thus I always go back to my old swing which is 'reliable'.
