Nothing is better than absolutely ripping your driver. There is no better feeling than bombing your tee shot, knocking your ball passed everyone else in the group and being last to play into the green from close range. Yes there are lots of elements to the game of golf and there is still a lot of work to do to finish the hole, but being able to hit that long ball off the tee certainly makes the game a whole lot easier, especially on today’s tough and ever lengthening golf courses. Every golfer wants to hit the golf ball further. No one has ever come to me for a lesson and asked for less shot distance!!
PLUS smashing your driver a mile and hitting massive tee shots is so much fun to practice.
So if you are ready to start knocking it passed your playing partners, if you are ready to set yourself up with easier, shorter approach shots into the green, then here’s your ultimate guide to hitting your driver further. This programme will provide you with simple, straightforward, step by step, guidance that is easy to follow and guarantees to have you driving the ball way passed your buddies in no time.
If you look at the PGA Tour stats, the evidence shows that the distance you can hit is a real indicator of success. Comparing the earnings of the top 5 players in driving distance to the earnings of the top 5 players in driving accuracy, distance wins hands down every time. The further you can hit, the more money you earn!! (And those players only hit the fairway just over 50% of the time). Hitting it long and making your approach shots shorter (and therefore easier) matters, as big but less accurate hitters earn significantly more than shorter more accurate hitters.
So lets get you hitting it farther with the Smash Factor golf coaching ultimate improvement guide to hitting your driver further.
- Programme introduction
A general overview to what you can expect from the programme and the 7 parts that it has been broken down into, to help you achieve maximum tee shot distance.
- Part 1 – Athletic posture
A great balanced, athletic start position is crucial if you are going to hit your furthest tee shots. In this part of the programme we look at the key elements to achieving the best athletic posture possible.
- Part 2 – Body rotation
Body rotation is absolutely key to generating maximum shot distance with your driver. You must rotate your body well during both your backswing and downswing if you are going to achieve maximum shot distance. Here we look at how to achieve a great rotational movement.
- Part 3 – Rotation & arm connection
Being too armsy in your golf swing will cause you several issues that result in you losing shot power. Here we look at what keeps your arms and body connected means as you make your golf swing and discuss how to implement some simple drills.
- Part 4 – Downswing sequencing
The order that your body segments accelerate in on the downswing is vital for creating maximum club head speed as the face strikes the golf ball. Learn the correct order, or sequence to move your body segments in and some simple drills to implement to ensure this order is correct.
- Part 5 – Centredness of strike
Achieving a centred strike from the face of your driver every time, will massively improve your tee shot distance. Centering the strike helps achieve maximum club head speed being transfered into maximum ball speed and therefore maximum shot distance. Off centre hits decrease this transfer of speed between club head and ball, therefore reducing shot distance, so with this part of the programme we look at how to achieve a centred strike from the club face.
- Part 6 – Speed
No matter how well you swing a golf club, if you centre the strike and swing slowly you will not hit the ball as far as if you swing fast – it’s that simple! Here we look at how to achieve speed and how to train to break through your swing comfort zone.
- Part 7 – Spin loft
Spin loft is actually a 3 dimensional angle between the direction the club head is moving in (both path & angle of attack) and the direction the club face is pointing in (both face angle & dynamic loft) and it is primarily responsible for the smash factor and spin rate of a golf shot. Why is this important with your driver? Well smash factor shows how efficiently the energy of the club head was transferred to the golf ball and spin rate has a major influence on height and distance of your drivers – so if you want maximum shot distance we need to consider spin loft.
