Poor tee shot

 
Fear can be a typical contributor to poor tee shots. It will cause you to involuntary quicken up your swing to a point that if you could see yourself in action you would not be proud of your attempt. Things to realize; that the ball when hit so well will feel like you have hit nothing but a small marble. A good shot does not feel that you have hit something large or heavy. So why put so much effort? What you want is an effort akin to tapping something small and light (like a golf ball) enabling the left forearm arm/wrist/club-shaft to form a straight line at impact. By the way this is the most powerful position you can be in to propel the ball.This might sound a bit corny but it may surprise you with the calmness and confidence that it can provide. Take your grip as if you are shaking hands and say to yourself “hello you are my friend”. Take a half swing and feel the club brush the ground. Before you start your swing exhale, and keep your lower jaw from clenching.
