It's a fact! All of us want more power and distance. Whether you hit the ball 200 or 300 yards adding an extra 10-15 yards to your driver gives any player confidence, and a distinct advantage over the competition.
The majority of instruction that we deliver is based upon customer feedback. Customers email us consistently with a breakdown of distance per club. They also provide where they would like to get to; usually 10-15 yards increase off the tee and on their approach shots.
The following tip is suggested to players who want an easy to implement way to generate extra distance off the tee. I don't recommend this set-up from the fairway or around the green, but should give you and extra 10-15 yards off the tee. In the Full Swing DVD we give you a section that is focused on the driver, but as we all know there is more to learn. We have recently released a Driver DVD that is all about hitting off the tee. It's proven to dramatically improve consistency and provide extra distance off the tee.
The following is a simple breakdown including different ways that power and distance is generated in our golf swing (I want you to understand what generates power):
Lack of distance off the tee.
I am going to teach you a modified set-up that will allow for maximum power generation. Typically players that have a slight draw generate more distance than players that hit a fade, so this set-up will put you in a position to hit a draw. This is also true for players on the tour (other than Tiger who can hit a 320 yard high fade). The following are steps to modify your set-up in order to allow for maximum distance:
These modifications place your body in a very powerful position at set-up.
Again please only implement this set-up off the tee. You can try it with your irons on the practice range, and if you see amazing results then play around with it on the course, but please don't change your entire set-up for the irons.
