Going Back To My Old Hitting Style

My experiment of swinging my driver to achieve a higher ball flight with my driver is officially over. I have tried different swing mechanics and none have produced any significant, consistent success off the tee. Thus, I have decided to stop fighting my natural swing because it was causing me nothing but frustration. It might seem like a strange topic to talk about, but I think it has value to any player trying to make changes to improve their game.

Golfers Hate Change

Recently, I adopted a minor change with my driver that has proven to be one of the best changes I have made in years. Moving forward, I can only see positive results off the tee.

Finding Success With My Driver

Recently, I mentioned that I was attempting to make some minor modifications to my swing when using the driver. I am trying to hit the ball just a bit higher in order to increase my distance off the tee. One of my goals this year is to stretch my average drive from 250 to 260 yards. After doing some research, I felt to achieve that goal, in needed to make minor modifications to my swing without sacrificing my accuracy. I am happy to say, so far so good.
