Golf Tip – Need More Distance?

need more distanceDo you need more distance off the tee?  To gain more distance with your driver you only need to make a few tweaks to your stance and grip.  First, widen your stance a couple of inches to create a wider and longer arc in your swing.  Next, if you are right handed, turn your left hand slightly more to the left on your grip so that you see two or three knuckles of your hand.  This is referred to as “strengthening your grip”.  It does not mean hang onto the club tighter.  The slight change in grip will promote a draw that will hit and roll farther than a straight grip or one that slices.  Try making these two little changes if you need more distance off the tee.
