Use speed to hit the golf ball further
Unless you are born with freakish talent there’s a good chance at some stage in your golfing life you have been trying to hit the golf ball further.
Golfers are genetically wired to want more and more distance off the tee.
Modern day giant killers off the tee such as Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott inspire and sometimes humiliate us with their monster drives down the fairways.
The longer you are off the tee the easier the game generally is. Of course if you are spraying the golf ball left and right into trouble no amount of distance will ever save you.
A longer tee shot gives you a shorter club to the green which maximises your chances of getting close to the hole.
I use the swing tools taught in the Golf Swing Speed Challenge system to help me launch longer drives.
It's simple to understand and perfect for high handicappers wanting to generate extra clubhead speed.
The problem is technology feeds us new drivers and balls like that promise instant increases off the tee.
Whilst it’s true these can help to a point, at the end of the day gaining extra distance starts with the golfer and his/her golf swing.
You can learn to hit the golf ball further just by making a slight adjustment in your golf swing.
It’s not difficult and can be performed by a golfer of any level without too much trouble.
Speed is the key
Watch the video below to see how using speed is the most efficient way to hit the golf ball further.
It's the secret to hitting those longer drives and solid golf iron shots and it easier to implement than you think.
Use speed for more distance in your golf game
A huge misconception in golf is that you need more power in your golf swing to hit the golf ball further.
Whilst it's true, being a slightly bigger or taller than average person can aid in getting more distance.
It only plays a small role in creating the perfect golf swing and generating the real serious distance you are after.
The most efficient way to increase your speed is to get the golf club to release properly across your chest.
This creates serious golf swing speed that results in longer and straighter golf shots.
Simple drill to create amazing golf swing speed
To get a feel for how speed can increase your distance try this simple drill.
Grill a stick or turn a golf club upside down.
Slowly make golf swings without using your body a great deal and see how you can get the stick / club to really whip through the hitting area.
In fact, you should hear a real ‘whoosh‘ sound with the tremendous amount of speed you're creating.
By implementing this sound concept into your real golf swing you'll see how much more speed you'll generate which in turn will launch longer golf shots.
A Universal Tip For All Golfers
Former long drive champion Bobby Wilson gives a great tip to hit the golf ball further in the video below.
The real key to increasing your distance off the tee is creating width in your golf swing.
You don’t need to swing the golf club like John Daly to achieve this.
Keep the golf club as far away from you as possible during the backswing. This creates leverage in the golf swing which is turn creates clubhead speed.
You don’t need to be Einstein to understand clubhead speed creates power in the golf swing.
Combining leverage and speed in the golf swing creates enormous power when coming through the impact zone.
Swing Away With Full Extension
If you have ever heard the phrase ‘chicken wing’, it’s not something you want in your golf swing.
Swing the golf club away from your body and extend fully with your arms. This creates maximum extension in the golf swing and goes a long way to creating a powerful golf swing.
This is the one fundamental found in all top professional golfers.
If all the best players in the world are doing this then it makes sense you should be doing the same.
Bring the Two Together
Work together in your golf swing to create width and full extension.
These are the two keys to creating explosive power off the tee and hitting the golf ball further.
It doesn’t take a special athlete to perform just the knowledge to replicate on every golf swing.
Hit the golf ball further today by following these two simple tips.
Wouldn’t you rather be hitting a pitching wedge into the green instead of a 4 iron?
I think you know the answer to that question!
