Learn the fundamentals necessary to make your woods your favourite clubs in the bag
Having a go to fairway finding drive is a must have tool to become a better player. Here is a simple way I use to hit a low fade driver that all but guarantees my next shot is from the fairway.
On every tee shot YOU get to choose where you put the ball in the ground to begin the hole. Select it wisely and play to your strengths
Who doesn't want longer drives? Listen as Adam Scott explains the exact same things I mentioned in a video 5 years ago that will enable you to hit the ball farther from the tee
Should you swing different with a driver compared to a long iron? They both have low loft but are the swing motions the same?
When golfers get into the longer irons and the fairway woods they believe they have to try help the ball up into the air
because when they look down they see very little loft on the club.
Here is the way it works. Helping it isn't going to do anything good- rather the opposite.
It's like in baseball. You swing up the ball goes diving downwards. You swing down the ball pops up.
Golf is easier than that because we get to choose where we put the ball in the stance.
Simple if you know how. Video below.
Increasing distance can have a lot to do with quality of strike- the angle of descent or ascent (with the driver)- spin rate etc.
The most important creation to help gain distance is swing speed- the faster the club can move the more ball speed will be created and hence the farther the shot can go- if struck well.
In this video I show one of my junior students a way to help him hit the ball farther as he prepares for the Drive Chip Putt event
Longer drives are always on every golfers wishlist.
Understanding the physics of how a drive can go longer is as simple as focusing your attention to a clock.
One minute is all it can take.
Please note: Whilst long drives are fun for the ego and can help you get a shorter club in your hand for your
next shot- never give up the ability to hit the ball straight when searching for more distance.
