Went to the range a little bit ago and had a little bit of a breathrough on driving. I kept seeing videos of people saying to be loose and relaxed. I thought I was loose and relaxed... until today.
I got tired of seeing and reading about people even smaller than me smashing long drives so I figured I MUST be doing something wrong. To test it I decided to just walk up and hammer the shit out of the ball just to see how far I could send it.. any direction, didn't matter. I took a huge, what felt like a reckless cut, and smoked the ball 250 basically straight down my target line. I couldn't believe it.
I hit another 8 or 10 balls like this and almost all of them had the penetrating rising ball flight and ended up in the 240-260 range. Ran home and got a tee time in an hour to see if I can actually do this on a course. haha Excited to see how it goes, especially since I think I got my irons working properly again too.
