 ==== ====For Great Golfing Tips Check This Out Today!http://bit.ly/ParGolf ==== ====Are you tired of being the "short knocker" in your group, tired of not being able to reach par 4's intwo, par 5's in three? How would you like to gain 10-30 yards off the tee without buying a new$400+ driver? This article reveals the steps taken by a 68 year old retired aerospace engineer to regain thedriving distance of his youth. The steps were taken over a 12 month period of experimentation using many different driver andshaft combinations and modifications. He began his quest for increased distance because his distance with the driver had fallen off 20-30 yards over the past few years and he had begun to struggle with hitting five iron and sometimesfour iron into greens where he used to hit a seven iron. Self evaluation told him that his swing length was getting shorter and his club head speed wasdropping like a rock. He had begun to increasingly have discomfort and flexibility loss in his joints.Especially his knees, hands, wrists and shoulders during and after a round of golf. This article was written to help you quickly and easily make significant improvements in yourdriving game using the same success steps. After a review of distance producing factors, you willthen learn several keys that will all work together to unlock the Longest Driver You Can Be. Section One-Driving Distance FactorsLets talk about distance. The scientists tell us that ultimately ball speed, launch angle and spinrate are factors that the golfer can control to maximize potential distance. Other factors like thewind, slope and hardness of the ground,length of fairway grass, humidity, and temperature are outof the golfer's control. Proper selection of a driver loft, head design, shaft type and flex will help the golfer maximize thefactors he can control. Swing improvements to get the club going down the target line for the mostsolid contact will minimize distance and accuracy robbing side spin. Maximum ball speed isachieved when the club head speed is maximum AND the contact is solid with a minimum of backor side spin. Somewhere between topping the ball so it runs on the ground and skying it (ForeGod!) there is an optimum launch angle for the conditions being played in. And as evidenced by more and more professional golfers adopting physical work out programs,building up major muscle strength and flexibility will obviously help gain distance. However theaverage golfer is either not inclined to put in that much physical time and work or unable to due toage created limitations. So other answers are needed.
 The driver is more difficult to hit than a three wood because of its lower loft. For that reason, inrecent years club manufacturers have been making drivers with more loft. Some years ago,drivers with 7 to 8 degrees of loft were common; now the more common lofts are in the 9.5 to 12degree range. the reason your driver shaft length is longer than your three wood shaft is so youcan develop more club head speed and hit it farther. The type of shaft in the driver is VERY important. It must match your swing characteristics or elseyou will not achieve maximum distance. The shaft is much like the engine in a car. In addition toshaft length both shaft flex (degree of stiffness) and the flex point(low, mid or high) affectperformance. Driver club head design in the past year or so has seen amazing advances in geometry andfabrication techniques that allow club makers to reduce and/or reposition weight to maximizeperformance. Positioning weight as far back behind the face and as low as possible has madedrivers more stable (higher moment of inertia) and increased the launch angle while reducingdistance robbing backspin. Golf ball design has come a long way in the past few years. So now more than ever it is possibleto gain distance by selecting the right ball for your swing. First of all, many golfers think that playing a "pro" ball will help their game. When in fact, it willactually rob them of valuable distance in most cases. Titleist and Callaway for instance make great "pro" level balls like the Pro V1, ProV1x, Hex Tourand Hex Tour 56. Truth is if your swing speed with the driver doesn't exceed 100 mph you aregiving up distance. My experience and testing has shown that it takes a certain minimum amountof club head speed to adequately compress such balls. For the average, non-pro, non-low handicap golfer, quality golf balls like the Maxfli Noodle orCallaway Hx Hot or Titleist NXT Extreme are much more capable of producing maximum distance. Now yes it is true these balls won't spin as much as the "pro" balls, but they will certainly spin wellenough to score with. Besides, how many times do you hit the ball past the hole anyhow? Section Two-Golf Swing Considerations It is beyond the scope of this report to try to improve your swing. You should consult with yourlocal PGA professional if you are having basic swing difficulties or just want to map a plan forimprovement. In order to achieve your maximum driving distance potential you will need to make sure of threethings as a minimum: Your grip must be proper- For a right handed golfer, you must grip the clubin the fingers (not the palms of your hands) and your left thumb position must be to the right ofcenter on the grip. Think of the butt end of the grip as a clock face and position your left hand suchthat the left thumb is between 1:00 and 2:00 o'clock. Generally speaking, the vee's between yourthumb and forefinger on each hand should point between your chin and right shoulder. You mustdo everything you can to reduce tension in your hands, arms and shoulders to achieve maximum
club head speed. Your grip should be so soft that when you start your back swing, the club headlags behind or almost lags behind initially. If you gauge grip pressure from 1 to 10 with 10 beingthe tightest, then you should try to start with a grip pressure of only about 4. Of course, there willalways be some increase during the down swing. But, if you don't start tension free then you willfall way short of your distance potential. You must swing through the ball not hit at the ball. Theball must just get in the way of your swing, not be the focal point. Section Three-Golfer Health ConsiderationsWhen the retired aerospace engineer started his quest to regain some of his lost distance, hebegan a series of very light physical stretching workouts to help regain some of his lost flexibility.This did not take much time and also encouraged him to make sure he did brief stretching to warmup before playing golf. (Note-always check with your doctor before starting any kind of exerciseprogram, especially those with a purpose of having you exert more effort.) After a couple of months he noticed a definite improvement and could even tell his small musclecontrol (handwriting) was improving. But, even though that stopped or at least greatly slowed anyfurther loss of distance it did not help him gain back as much as he wanted. The light exercise / stretching workouts also helped regain some lost muscle tone so he couldswing harder. But, his aching stiff arthritic joints let him know they didn't like the extra stress. He did research and talked with a number doctors who recommended taking some form ofGlucosomine/Chondroitin to increase his joint lubrication and encourage repair/rebuilding ofdamaged/aging joint tissue. And, this really did help him relieve most of his discomfort. (Note-always check with your doctor before adding to or changing any of your medications.) Section Four-Golf Club ConsiderationsThere are three major components that make up the driver: the club head, the shaft and the grip. Club Head For maximum distance your driver club head should have as many of the followingfeatures as possible: Face should be slightly (1/2 to 1 degree closed) to encourage a slight drawor minimize the effects of a fade/slice. Weight bias should be neutral or slightly draw biased toencourage a slight draw or minimize the effects of a fade/slice. Size should be 435 cc or larger formaximum forgiveness on off center hits. Loft should be 10 to 12 degrees minimum to achieve alaunch angle near the optimum of 13 degrees for maximum carry/roll combined. Constructionshould be Titanium/Composite materials to minimize overall club head weight and allow achievingmaximum club head speed. Moment of Inertia (MOI) should as high as the limits allow to minimize distance loss due to theclub head twisting on off center hits. The Coefficient of Restitution (COR-spring like effect) shouldbe as high as the limits allow to produce maximum possible ball speed. The Center of Gravity(CG) should be low and back to help get the ball airborne without a lot of distance robbingbackspin. My current favorite is the Cleveland Hi-Bore XL but there are certainly other very similarclubs made by all the name manufacturers If you decide you want to upgrade to a more currentdriver technology, there are plenty of bargains on eBay that will save you a lot of money. Shaft The type of shaft in the driver is VERY important. It must match your swing characteristics orelse you will not achieve your maximum potential distance. The shaft is much like the engine in a
