Hit bigger drives with the help of the game's longest drivers

|Tee It High This sounds pretty basic, but if you want to achieve the proper launch, you can’t be afraid to tee it plenty high. ||Low and Slow A lot of players make the mistake of picking the club up quickly, which reduces the swing arc. ||Full Extension You’ve got to make your swing arc as big as possible if you want to create maximum speed. ||Shoulders Are Key You can’t let your arms do all the work. Try to get your shoulders turning around your spine. |

|Weighty Matters Don’t let your body weight get stranded on your front side. Feel it in your right thigh and heel. ||Max Out This is |
a lot like John Daly in his prime. If you can keep turning so the clubshaft goes past parallel, do it!
|Store It Up Look at the angle between the clubshaft and right wrist. That’s a ton of power being saved up for impact. ||Don’t Cast That angle is still there though the arms have moved in front of the body. This is awesome storage. |
|Get Leverage Storing power won’t help you if you don’t hit against a fixed position, like a |
firm left side.
|Let it go There’s no hold back here! The club is moving straight down the target line with no holding on. ||Keep it going If you quit on the shot, you’ll rob yourself of power. Keep that right side moving through the swing. ||Comfort Zone |
A balanced finish shows you’ve made a swing with good mechanics and efficient energy transfer.
