    Launch Angle: are you hitting down on the golf ball with your driver or up on it? We are taught to hit down with our irons which is the correct way of swinging. We tee the ball up for a reason; to get our golf club under the ball and hit up on it. The more you hit up on the ball, the less spin we create. Less spin equates to more roll upon landing. This works vice versa, the more we hit down on the ball, the more spin we create and the ball will roll less and stop sooner. So….in the quest for extra yards, we should be looking for less spin and more roll. The PGA professionals average -2.2 attack angle and hit down on it intentionally to have control of the ball and where it stops. When looking to gain more yardage, they don’t always swing harder, they alter their angle of attack and create less spin to get more roll. Try that same technique when trying to gain some more yardage. Stay tuned for our next tip on gaining distance.
