How to hit longer drives

Hitting longer drives on the golf course can be a challenging task, but there are several things you can do to improve your distance. Here are a few key areas to focus on:

  1. Swing speed: The faster your clubhead is moving at impact, the more distance you will generate. Try to increase your swing speed by working on your strength and flexibility. Exercises such as plyometrics and power training can help you generate more speed.

  2. Swing path: The path of your clubhead can have a big impact on your distance. Try to make sure that your clubhead is moving along an inside-out path, which will help you make contact with the ball on the sweet spot of the clubface and generate more distance.

  3. Club selection: Choosing the right club for the shot is important. Make sure you are using a driver that is appropriate for your swing speed and skill level. A driver that is too heavy or too light can negatively impact your distance.

  4. Ball position: The position of the ball in your stance can also have a big impact on distance. Experiment with different ball positions to find the one that works best for you. Typically, a ball position slightly forward of center in your stance will help you generate more distance.

  5. Mental preparation: Finally, work on your mental preparation. Try to focus on the process of your swing and avoid thinking about the outcome. Stay positive, stay focused and take your time with your swing.

By focusing on these areas, you will be able to hit longer drives on the golf course. It's important to remember that hitting longer drives requires practice and patience. Keep working on your technique and focus on the process, and over time you will see improvement in your distance.
