Today I’d like to talk to you about creating a little more distance with your driver. Something we’re asked as instructors is “How do I get the ball to go farther?” and one of the things we see all the time, is that people tend to work harder to get less. So, what I’d like to give you is a little bit of a swing mechanic drill to try to get you to achieve more distance. The first thing we want to do is make sure that our back swing gets fully turned as we go back. Our body is coiling up, our hips are moving around and back and our left shoulder is getting somewhere behind the golf ball. If my left shoulder is over here I’m going to only have the power of my arms to kind of hit it with and I’m going to use all arms to go in. I’m going to lose a lot of distance. So, if I can get myself to get nice and patient as I go back, get my left shoulder behind the ball, I want to feel like my arms
