Golf Tip – Distance

May 16, 2016 Posted by Matt

DistanceAre you looking for more distance?  Longer drives come from turning your core, not swinging your arms faster.  If you stand too wide, you will not be able to turn your hips which prevents you from generating power and distance.  As you make a turn in your backswing, you want to feel your weight in your right heel.  Be very careful to turn so your back is to the target, do not slide your hips to your back foot which is a sway.  Start your downswing with your hips leading the way and then your shoulders.  You should be facing your target when you finish.  Execute this move properly and you will gain distance on your drives.
