Donaldson: The secret to straight drives

Irish Open champion Jamie Donaldson has revealed some of the reasons behind his success at Royal Portrush where he claimed his first Tour win.

Last week he let us in on his putting secrets, but it's back to the tee this week as the Welshman tells us how he drives it so straight...

“Driving is one of the stronger parts of my game, because I grew up on a very short course where my main focus was driving the green. And as a green is a lot smaller than a fairway it makes your misses a lot straighter!

“Remember to pick a very small target in the distance in line with where you want to hit the ball, and swing with 85 percent power towards that target. Playing without aiming is aimless playing!”
