In this video PGA Professional Eric Hogge shows you how to adjust your swing if you are switching to a driver with a bigger head. First, you will have to tee your ball up higher than if you were using a club with 200cc’s. The newer 460cc drivers will require you to tee the ball up higher and not sole the driver on the ground or if that doesn’t feel comfortable for you, you can also address the ball at the toe of the club instead. Follow along as Eric demonstrates how to adjust your swing with new drivers.

    How does “shaft bend” affect the way you should address the ball with 460 driver? My understanding is that the club will bend down during the swing, which would seem to indicate that at address the ball should be more towards the heel of the club. What am I missing here?

      Hello and thanks for the question. In all honesty, I wouldn’t worried about “shaft bend” or let it enter your mind when on the tee. With your 460cc driver, if you set up to the ball as you normally would but play the ball more towards the outside toe of the head, you should find your ball striking the center suite spot with more consistency. Play around with the exact position to address your ball between the middle of the clubface and the toe at address to find the best address position for your swing. Hope this helps and good luck on the course!
