3 Tips to Gain More Driving Distance in your Golf Swing

Tips for Hitting Your driver Farther

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.
