How to Drive a Golf Ball Longer
« on: December 27, 2011, 01:34:08 AM »
Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Challenging

Step 1    Be patient. Most desires to slam the drive come from anger and frustration caused by poor play. If your swing is off that day, it is not   
                 the time to be pounding the driver. In fact, you should do just the opposite; take a hybrid, swing easily and get the ball in play so you
                 can build back your confidence and adopt a nice, easy swing again. There is not a need to crush the driver on every hole. The lack of
                 accuracy from swinging hard more than offsets any gains in distance.

Step 2    Take a wider stance. When your swing is grooved and there's more to be gained in distance than can be lost in accuracy, here's how
                 to smoke it. Broaden your stance an inch or two. Not only does this give a more stable base, it allows for a wider takeaway.

Step 3    Make a wide arc. Concentrate on keeping the club head moving low and back away from the ball on the backswing as much as your
                 arms and shoulders naturally allow. Keep this in mind on the downswing as well, following through with a swing that maintains
                 closeness to the ground for as long as possible after the ball is struck.

Step 4    Think power not speed. When you think about hitting the long ball, your tendency is to swing faster. And this usually begins with your
                 arms initiating the downswing in a rush to make contact. This upsets your timing in a number of ways, resulting in exactly the
                 opposite of what you intend. But if you think about power, your mind goes to the big muscles of the legs, hip and shoulders, which is
                 not only the correct sequence of events, but is also where the power comes from to hit the ball farther.

Step 5    Swing at 80 percent. This may seem counterintuitive, but some of the longest and most consistent drivers of the golf ball claim that
                 this actually encourages a more accurate swing path that meets the ball squarely on the sweet spot, resulting in additional yardage.
