Ready To Drive It Long Like The pros? These Videos Will Help

Increase your distance off of the tee with these helpful videos to drive like the pros.

By Sabrina Naccarato

There are just a couple of things that separate the pros from us weekend warriors but the thing that stands out most prominently has to be driving distance. Big hitters like Rory, DeChambeau, DJ, Cameron Champ and Tony Finau have totally revolutionized their games for the better to adapt to their distance off of the tee- because obviously, it’s easier to hit a wedge into a green than a 5-iron.

So, how do we get on their level? We’re sharing three videos that’ll help you start hitting bombs off of the tee just like pros! And if you still need help after watching these videos, find a GOLFTEC Coach near you for all of your driving distance needs.

Hit Long Tee Shots like Dustin Johnson & Rory McIlroy by combining their golf swings

What would you get if you combined Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy? A swing built for speed. By channeling Dustin Johnson in the backswing while he changes his knee flex to help create more turn and Rory McIlroy during the follow-through when he straightens his knee and bends himself backward to help generate power, you’ve got the ultimate golf swing.

Hit longer drives- accelerate through the ball

Something many golfers struggle with is slowing down their swing before impact, which can actually rob you of a lot of distance. VP of Instruction, Nick Clearwater breaks down what really happens before the club reaches impact and why it’s important that the clubhead speed increases in the downswing.

Learn to swing like Rickie Fowler

Director of Teaching Quality, Brad Skupaka, shows us how Rickie Fowler takes his hands back in his backswing, which leads to a more in-to-out swing. If you’re struggling with a slice or lack of distance, Brad explains how this is the perfect swing to emulate and shares a drill to do just that.
