Sacs are the little black dots you see on your driver. The reason why they’re called “dots” is because they go all the way through the head and onto the shaft of your club. If you’re like most golfers, you hate to look at your driver with the black dots clearly in view. So how do you get around this?
You can’t! It’s sac specific and you have to play the game right. It’s also very important that you maintain your ball position and ensure that it is always pointing in the same direction as your swing. Otherwise, it will be like a swinging pendulum that will constantly pull your ball away from where you want it to go.
To start with, you need to find yourself a good firm but fairway wood to use for your driver. Look at your driver and notice where you can easily reach with ease. It will be near the top of the handle. If possible, make this your sac start location. This way, you’ll be able to feel comfortable reaching for your club without fear of poking the ball out of your stance.
When playing with a firm fairway wood, get into the habit of keeping your irons lined up along your ball’s shaft. Once you know this, it will become much easier to see where your ball goes and how you position yourself over the ball. And once you’re in the habit of doing this, you will find that your scores improve tremendously. You’ll have less holes to hit and your handicaps will fall.
It’s important to practice this on the range regularly. This will help you get into the proper setup and alignment before a shot. And once you have this down, you can then simply move your body into place and hit some shots. With that said, here’s what you do if you start your drive with your sac start moving away from your target:
What you should do is shift your weight onto your toe and hips so that you are now in a good position to absorb the shock of the golf ball’s impact. From there, just swing and enjoy your new swing. And if you don’t like this setup, you can always slide your weight or shift your weight onto your big toe or second toe. Good luck!
