Gain Driver Distance By Letting Go

By | on August 24, 2021 | 4 Comments |

In this tip I am talking about gaining more distance with your driver and having this letting go feeling. I see so many golfers that hold on or guide the golf club too much when playing. This only slows things down. If you feel like you are trying to guide the golf club or just tight in general then this is a great tip and feelings for you.

  1. This another yet great video Paul, my comment on this is that it would make absolute sense to me, to use this loose/letting go swing as your practice swing before you use the driver. Am I being too simplistic or just stating the obvious????

      For sure you can do that. Its really anything that gets you to be looser in your swing. If its do small drills like this then I am totally fine you modifying it to where it helps you.

    Paul, it would also help to slow our swing tempo way down for this drill, right? I’m seem to have much greater success in “feeling” the swing sensations u describe when I go slower…Then I ratchet up the tempo gradually so that I can monitor he motions in my swing better! Does that sound right? Thanks, Rand.

    Awesome tip again.

    I have been following your plan and have been doing a ton of practice swings at home, I only went to the range once. I was able to get out and play yesterday and I destroyed the ball probably 70 % of the time.

    I got gassed on the back 9 because it was crazy hot ( in New Jersey ) and had to really concentrate to avoid the ” Arm ” swing but kept it together pretty good.

    I understand this is a process and I still have a ways to go but your stuff WORKS !!

    All the best,
