To become a consistent long driver, you need a good club and a good swing. The good swing is what I’m concerned with here.
The Power AddressThe first you need to do is set yourself up properly:
The first point is a much-overlooked key. If your spine leans toward the target, you will tend to tilt rather than turn your body on the backswing.
If you want to hit the ball a long way, you must wind up your body properly. Any sign of a tilt can result in a great loss of power.
Elbow-To-Wall DrillTo encourage you to turn properly on the backswing and develop a good coil of your body, practise this technique:
This turn is exactly the move you should be making with your golf club on the backswing. After doing the drill a few times, have a swing with a club and try to feel the same move you made to get your elbow on the wall.
If you can incorporate this move into all your golf swings, you will hit the ball better. Most importantly, you should hit the ball much further.
