Video Golf Tip | Intro to Distance Control

This might sound strange to some of you but there are some people who are interested in learning how to control your distance rather than produce so much distance. You might be the person who was trying to hit a 5-iron 180 yards and end up hitting it 200 yards because you have too much explosive power. For those of you who are trying to reduce and control your distance it is important for you to understand what happens to do that. For people who produce a lot of power you have a lot of potential power built up, you have plenty of potential in the backswing. You save all that power all the way down and release it very explosively through impact, creating a lot of clubhead speed but having a hard time controlling the distance of the shots. Wat you would like to do is to change things in the backswing to reduce your potential to create distance or you would like to be able to do things in your downswing that actually make the club go a little bit slower so that you can control the distance that you hit shots. What we have done is design a number of drills and exercises to help you do exactly that so that you can get more control, even at the loss of a little distance.
