Not sure I agree that increased swing speed is a good motivator as much as increased distance with your current swing speed.
If you get everything else correct, you don't need to look like your swinging out of your shoes to get good distance. IIRC, you already can hit the balls out 275 yards, if you can do this efficiently it will allow you to focus on accuracy which is more important than just distance.
The previous poster said when you can get the lag naturally, you will increase your swing speed. That's also true, because to do that you need really good swing mechanics.
yes that 275 was my top drive...havent hit many of those recently, my standard driver shots are duckhooks or 5-8 yard altitude powerfades. It seems that I need driver specific instruction from pga pro urgently.
I'm more reliable with my hybrids nowadays actually (due to easier swing mechanic in my opinion, hybrids are like medium irons but hit longer)
I was reflecting on that difficult forced carry hole at sawgrass was it? The one with very narrrow fairway, but 200+ yard forced carry over water unto the green.
I was pounding out hybrid shots at 220-230 yard carry at the range today so I would def try my hybrid in that type of forced carry with my increased confidence (assuming I could reach the front bunker at least)
my sad duckhoook drivers just carry about 190 yards and roll forward to about 250-260 LOL!!!
