If you have been able to reach the 275 milestone as I demonstrated in my previous video in this ‘personal milestone’ series, you should now start to aspire to getting to the next phase which will really drop your handicap.
Hitting the ball 300+ allows you to start dominating golf courses by hitting mid and long irons into the par 5’s for more tap in birdies, and short irons into stout par 4’s for more bogey avoidance.
If you’ve been following the series, you know we started with the fundamentals of creating speed and efficiency. These include things like learning to hit the sweet spot, making a full swing, and getting your ball position correct.
Now as you attempt to hit longer drives, you will of course need added speed, but now your equipment needs a lot more attention. There are certainly driver heads that create more of a high launch, low spin pattern, as well as driver shafts.
With the right swing mechanics and the right driver, you can create a ball flight that gets both carry and roll as your create a high launching, low spinning drive.
It’s one thing to become fast, and another altogether to be distance efficient, which takes even more skill and know how. Golfers in this category are known as sneaky long, as they tend to look effortless yet consistently outdrive their peers.
On this day I was able to reach 325 on 3 drives, at speed that many others would not make 300 yards with. Maybe I will be able to film a follow up to this video after all – the 325+ yard drive!
