Use your power wisely

Golf Australia - - IN MY OPINION -

Tour stats in­creas­ingly sug­gest the im­por­tance of power over ac­cu­racy when it comes to low scores. In­deed many top golfers av­er­age among the best for driving dis­tance but rank very low for fair­ways hit. How­ever, note those stats don’t di er­en­ti­ate be­tween a ball a yard o the fair­way and one in the next post­code. When­ever you pull out your power swing, you’ll in­evitably sac­ri­fice some con­trol – and ma­jor driver in­dis­cre­tions can be fa­tal for your score­card.

So use it spar­ingly at first, on wide fair­ways in down­wind con­di­tions and ideally in Stable­fords. Then as your con­fi­dence grows, you can bring it into your game more of­ten.
