What Creates Distance of the Tee?

One of the things that everyone would like is to hit the ball farther. For those of you who do not hit the ball far enough it is really important for you to know what creates the distance of the shot. What really creates distance is nothing more than clubhead speed properly applied to the ball. If you do not have enough clubhead speed it is because: You do not develop the potential to produce speed in the backswing; or If you have the backswing right you end up using your speed at the wrong place in the downswing. What we have done is develop a number of drills and exercises to help you develop that distance producing backswing and that distance producing downswing so that you can hit the ball farther.
