When i hit the golf ball at the driving range why does it roll on the ground instead of fly?

Question by Beer Man: When i hit the golf ball at the driving range why does it roll on the ground instead of fly?
Hi!
I went to the driving range & when i would hit the golf ball it would be a line drive on the ground instead of taking flight in the air..
It was really embarassing as it was my first time but there was just a bunch of old retired men so i didn’t really care..
I was using my driver..
How can i get the ball to go in the air when i hit it at the driving range?

Hi Samantha,
First of all, make sure the right driving range tee is in the mat, they can be changed so you don’t have to use the standard one just because it is there.
I would personally say the main reason why you are hitting daisy cutters is because you are coming up off the ball, in other words, lifting your head.
Next time you are there, just try to keep your head down and let the momentum of the swing take it up when it is meant to.
The other thing to try to maintain more flight is to try to distribute your weight a little better. Around 60% on your right sided, presuming you are right handed. Sometimes a lower ball flight can also be caused by transferring your weight too soon, getting ahead of the ball with your hands etc.
Hope this helps,
Trevor
