The key factor in the placement of "where to position the golfball" is based upon the position of the Golf swing arc where it comes to its lowest point. It is the general practice that this point or position is slighty off of the heel of the leading foot. Right heel for a left handed golfer, and left heel for a right handed golfer. Slight changes to this could be made to alter the flight of the golfball by positioning the ball slighty more forward in the stance to allow the impact point to be more on the upswing thereby promoting a slighty higher ball flight trajectory. This might be useful with a tail wind on the tee shot or with a driver that has a small degree of loft, 7.5 or similar. You should avoid from moving the ball back in the stance as this would tend to promote a downward impact on the golfball and tend to cause you to "pop-up" the ball thereby creating a loss of distance and control. The drive should always be a "sweeping motion" through the golfball and not a downward type of impact as is the case with the play of most of the irons in play. For general practice position the ball off the heel of the leading foot, toe the leading foot towards the target slighty to promote a easier turning or "coiling" motion of the body, drive your hips through the target line on the downswing not "around", and extend your follow through down the target line path towards a full high follow through finish. I hope that this has helped you out. Thanks.

What is the best driver for the average golfer?

For an average golfer an ideal driver would be one which has a reasonable amount of loft on it, say 10.5 degrees and a regular shaft, both of which will help get the ball airborne as well as providing good distance.
