NEVER SWING ALL OUT WITH YOUR DRIVER
Swinging the club harder doesn’t always equal more distance. In many instances, if you’re swinging out of your boots, chances are you’re going to be off balance – coming over the top, imparting too much spin and doing all sorts of crazy things that will throw the club off line coming into impact. Even when I smoked that 432-yard drive in Hawaii, I still didn’t give it everything. I never do because, even at the Tour level, golf is very difficult. The bottom line is the harder you swing the club the harder it is to control, so I always make a point of never swinging faster than 90% of my maximum power.
