Someone once asked me, how do you hit the ball as far as you do when you have such an easy swing?
I said, That’s the answer. What’s the question?
When you hit the ball on the center of the clubface, that being the golf swing’s primary distance generator, you get all the distance you deserve. You’ll hit the ball straighter, too.
This doesn’t mean to swing with no power at all, just that if you’re not hitting the ball on the center you are most likely swinging too hard. Ease back until you make centered contact consistently.
It will feel like you’re playing a different game.
