SET UP TO CRE­ATE A POWER LAUNCH

The se­cret to gen­er­at­ing max­i­mum dis­tance is fast club­head speed and a high launch an­gle

Golf World (UK) - - DJ’S DISTANCE SECRETS -

When I set up to the ball with a driver I’m think­ing about two things. The first is set­ting the body an­gles I need to cre­ate power. The sec­ond is form­ing the solid foun­da­tion upon which I can har­ness that en­ergy. I like to stand as tall as I pos­si­bly can with a wide and ath­letic stance. My knees are bent slightly and my up­per body is tilted back a lit­tle to keep my head be­hind the ball, which al­lows me to fully turn my shoul­ders. I like the ball well for­ward in my stance, just in­side my left foot. All of th­ese fac­tors com­bine to help me gen­er­ate as much club­head speed as pos­si­ble.
