Although this video is aimed at senior golfers who, over the years, have begun to lose distance, the fundamentals shown here apply to all of our everyday golfers. The typical solutions for loss of distance are: trying every new driver that comes along to buy back more distance, or simply swinging harder. It is pretty much a truism that a new driver is more likely to improve the stores bottom line and gain you not one yard more.
Which leads us to the question, should you learn to swing harder to gain back the distance you’ve lost? Paul Wilson explains why this doesn’t work, and in fact causes you to lose more distance than you have already lost as a result of the ageing process.
