Video Golf Tip | Gaining More Driving Distance
By Tim Cusick

Everybody is looking for more distance out of their driver. Club manufacturers have been a great deal of help in recent history. They have made the drivers longer, they have made the heads bigger. Bigger heads, bigger sweet spots equates to more distance. A couple of things that you can do however. The first thing you can do is lengthen out your backswing, even if the club swings past parallel. That is not the worst thing in the world that you can do. The longer the backswing the more clubhead speed you can generate. The second thing you want to do is create a swishing sound with your hands and arms, swinging back and through, that speeds the club up. The third thing is you want to hit the ball with the back of your left hand. The back of your left hand is square, the clubface is square, solid contact is number one in creating more distance. Let me go ahead and give it a shot. Remember, make solid contact, get a swishing sound and buy yourself some technology. That is a great recipe for more distance.

Golf Posture and Stance Your posture is determined by your arm swing. If you swing up and down on a two plane swing then you should stand more upright. If you swing your arms around on a one plane swing then stand more bent over on the balls of your feet.
Timing of Motion in the Golf Swing Match the movement of the club with the movement of the body to arrive back at the same point
