We all want to get as much distance as possible out of our driver and a lot of amateur golfers make the mistake of thinking that means hitting is as hard as you can. PGA Professional Danny Maude is back with another brilliant instruction video that will have you hitting longer drives, without putting your back out...
In the video below, Danny explains how this one drill can add distance to your driver, with one of his students adding 60 yards of total distance off the tee. The video has received hundreds of comments from happy golfers who have put the drill to the test and been very pleased with their results.
Danny's drill for adding distance off the tee:
Something that I see a lot of my students and other amateur golfers do with the driver is look very robotic. They're aware of being in certain positions with their swing and make it into a sequence, but it becomes very stiff and restrictive. You need a real golf swing if you want to add distance.
Start by standing over the golf ball and let your arms feel heavy. Take a few swings but I want you to feel as though your arms are being swung by your body, so your body is moving and slinging your arms.
Imagine throwing a golf ball with your hands and being stiff, you're not going to throw the ball very far. When you relax your body, you're able to sling your arms with it and get the distance requried to throw the ball.
At the driving range, take a few shots where honestly the shot doesn't matter, but just get the feel of a more relaxed and almost lazy swing, where you move the body and let the arms release with it.
Once you start allowing your body to move first and really release your arms, you're going to start hitting the ball a lot further off the tee.
For a full break down of Danny's distance tip, make sure you watch the video above.
