00:06
and the best way to do that is to create more speed.
00:09
Most golfers are trying to create speed from the top.
00:12
They're casting the club from the top
00:14
and by the time they get back to the ball,
00:15
the club is actually decelerating and losing speed.
00:19
What you wanna do is swing to the top
00:21
and when you swing down you wanna create
00:22
the most speed you can with the club in your hands
00:25
when the club is between this quarter
00:27
inside of your pockets.
00:28
So from about here to here coming through.
00:32
So to create more speed and maximize distance,
00:35
think about swinging the club as fast as you can
00:36
from pocket to pocket.
00:38
You'll be hitting drives further than ever before.
