Want More Distance?

I get asked all the time from students, “How can I get more distance off the tee?” Without swinging faster and contorting your body more, the easiest way to get more distance is to hit the sweet spot. If you miss the sweet spot by 1″, the cost is 10% of your driving distance. Uh, oh! For the average guy, that is 20 yards. An easy way to see where you are contacting the face is to get some powder foot spray (I use Gold Bond…the generic brand doesn’t work). Spray your club lightly and swing away. If you are missing the sweet spot, things to consider that you can do on your own:

  • Distance away from the ball
  • Tee Height
  • Ball Position
  • Angle of Attack
  • Swing Plane/Path
  • Extension
