Today’s short is all about maximising your driving distance. Our Pro, James Whitaker, talks us through the drill from Reunion Resort in Orlando..
What we tend to see when we are hitting the ball off the tee is that when we swing through there is a bit of a break down on the left hand side. Everything kind of gets forced down, we get a little steep to the ball and the ball spins up so we don’t get the distance we want.
What I want you to do is that when you are setting up get a nice wide stance and when you make the swing let the right hand side hang behind you.
This means that when you turn you are firing on the way up to deliver some serious power into the back of the ball.
