Pro­fes­sional golf’s long­est hit­ters av­er­age nearly 300 me­tres off the tee, and while that’s out of reach for us mere mor­tals, these tips will help you launch it fur­ther than ever be­fore.

Pro­fes­sional golf’s long­est hit­ters av­er­age around 315 yards. World Long Drive cham­pi­ons like Joe Miller reg­u­larly swipe the ball well over 400. Im­pres­sive gures for sure, but for folks like us, liv­ing in the real world, they are the stuff of dreams. Yet there’s noth­ing to stop you tak­ing the prin­ci­ples on which those power swings are based and adapt­ing them to your level and abil­ity. In this ar­ti­cle we set out four power pil­lars used by the bombers and show you how you can ex­ploit them. Miller lite it may be, but these proven tech­niques can make an im­me­di­ate and valu­able dif­fer­ence to your own driving dis­tance.
