I'm just wondering if there is any quick tips or fixes for my driver launching and flying maybe 2 feet off the ground. I've tried numerous things just curious if any of y'all have some tips. Thanks.

Not seeing your swing, it's difficult, but here's a simple quick fix to try. Tee the ball up further and play it more forward in your stance. Should promote you to swing up on the ball and get a higher launch.

I've been working on the same thing with my driver. I'm terrible all around with the driver, but my shot trajectory is even a little higher than I would like with my irons. This video helped illustrate to me how you can use the same swing but change some things to get your trajectory better with the driver. I'm sure more qualified people can give some advice, but this video is what I'm working on right now with my driver. Yet to be determined how much it helps me.

When you set-up and the ball is on the tee, are your hands in front of the ball?  If so, consider changing that set-up so that your hands are about the same as or even behind ball a bit.

Tee 'em high and let 'em fly!

I had that problem and pretty much resolved it by teeing the ball higher.  I think as a beginner I was nervous to hit the ground with the longer clubs, so I would tend to swing higher on the ball.  Especially with my driver.

Without seeing your swing, my first guess is that you're swaying which effectively moves the ball back in your stance. Do you also find you're losing the ball right more than you'd like?
