The Easy Way to Gain More Distance off the Tee
Every golfer wants more distance off the tee. Even pros are seeking to get more distance.
To increase your distance with your driver or irons, what do you need to do?
Nowadays, pros spend lots of time training themselves. Some players dramatically increased their distance by training. Annika Sorenstam was one of them.
During her rookie season on the LPGA Tour, her average driving distance off the tee was 229 yards. But 5 years later, her average distance increased up to 270 yards. That's a lot!
How did she do that?
The main reason why she increased such amount of distance was training. During the tournament week, she spent 1 hour per day in the gym. During the non-tournament week, she spent 4 to 5 hours training.
But I can't tell you to do the same thing.
Training 4 to 5 hours per day isn't realistic for amateurs who have jobs and don't have enough time.
But there is an easy way to gain more distance without spending so much time or money.
That is to spend 5 minutes every day for stretching. By stretching every day, you'll be able to turn your body further back during the golf swing.
There are players over 50 years old who did stretching every day and dramatically increased their driving distance.
Here are basic keys when stretching.
1. Never stretch to the point of pain.
2. Warm up before you stretch. The good time to do stretching is after taking a shower.
3. Understand that everyone has different degrees of flexibility. You don't have to try too hard.
4. Do it slowly.
