So I am sitting at work thinking about my golf game and wanted to post this because I am trying to figure this game out and wanted to see if anybody could help me with this. I know I need to post a video and will do that in a couple of weeks or so but I am going through yet another retooling of my swing so I want to work that out before I do.
So anyway back to the topic. I have been fooling around with different positions with my driver and I find that if I use typical wisdom of teed up and inside the instep of my front foot I basically pull the ball. Usually a playable pull but somewhere in the left rough. No slice. Maybe a little hook action sometimes. However if I put the ball near the middle of my stance and only tee it up to where the top of the ball is at the top of the driver head, maybe slightly higher, than I hit it square. I have slightly lost my drive lately as 3 weeks ago I would hit it about 240-260 yards with a tight draw and really consistent and now I am around 225 and I cannot draw it anymore. However even when I was hitting it well I had to set up with the ball the same way.
So is it a must to have the ball just inside the left instep to hit the driver the best I possibly can? If so, what could possibly be causing the pull when I set up that way and how can I fix it?
