I am curious do Long Drive players use different golf balls? I ask because I know that me being an average duffer prefer a softer ball to that of the tour balls as i get more distance out of it. I would think that the huge swing speeds generated by those 50" shafts, the LDA guys would need something even harder. So I figured, why not ask.

the ones that i have seen have been sponsered by Pinnacle so they use those balls. They are rock hard so that is not a surprise.

there is an actual pinnacle long drive ball they use in competition, but when i play golf with my best friend(competes in long drive tourneys) he uses pinnacle.. hits the ball 100 yards farther than me and i am around 250, 275 if i really get ahold of it, makes me sick sometimes. i destroy him in the short game area though.

Pinnacle Gold FX Long

Pinnacle, an industry-leading brand synonymous with distance, is the official golf ball for all LDA-sanctioned competitions. (from the LDA web site)

Great for all out distance but I can't get them to stop on the green.

Yeah, wait til he develops a short game, then you're really gonna vomit...

    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
    • You know better. So do better. </toughlove>
    • Will keep at it. Obviously what I'm feeling ain't real.
    • Hello. I have Morton's neuroma in my right foot. I'm applying Ice hot with lidocaína and according to my doctor I have to wait for the next month to see any improvements or he has to do an injection. So does any one have experienced this ? Any advice for treatment or how to avoid this and other injuries? Thanks 
    • No width? C’mon Vishal. You can do this. No reason to have that right elbow bending that much. No reason for the club to go back anywhere near that far.
