NEVER SWING ALL OUT WITH YOUR DRIVER

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

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.
