I WANT MORE DISTANCE DANG IT!!!!!!!!
Don't we all! I know, topic that has been discussed before. I'm looking for people that have successfully gained distances of 10 to 20 yards throughout the bag through drills, strength training, whatever may have worked.
Here's my situation. I currently play at a 11.2 handicap. I've been playing in Salt Lake City for a couple of years now after playing primarily in the southeast for the past 25 years. The altitude difference definitely helps with extra distance, but I recently played a tournament in Hilton Head and my distances were horrible. I was hitting driver 210 max. Every Par 5 was Driver, 5W, 5W to reach the green. I had a lot of long Par 4s where I had to lay up and wedge in hoping to get a par. My short game isn't perfect, and I know I can gain more strokes there, but I already save strokes around the green with my short game.
During the tournament I played in I was the shortest hitter in my group for three straight days. I was consistently outdriven by 20-30 yards, sometimes for over 50 yards by some of the longer hitters. Where I hit hybrids into greens guys were hitting 7 and 8 irons.
I'm not looking for monster distance increases, but I honestly think I can get a club or two extra if I work at it. Just looking for any suggestions from people that have actually been successful at doing so. I'm done being a short hitter and having to rely on my long game to get me close to the green and a short game to hopefully make up strokes. I'd much rather be hitting shorter clubs into greens and putting more often than having to chip up and save par. I'm not looking to buy new equipment to get extra distance as I have modern clubs that I know can be hit further.
Thanks for the help!
