Improve Golf Driving Distance

by: Mike Pedersen
How do I improve my golf driving distance? I hear this question daily. This is the dream of almost every amateur golfer. To hit it longer. But to improve golf driving distance isnít what you think. No itís not your equipment. Itís not pounding more balls at the range. And itís not even taking more lessons.

Itís about working on the machine that swings the club. Are you following me? Do you know what Iím getting at? Youíre an athlete if you play golf. Donít laugh. Iím serious! To swing a golf club effectively takes a tremendous amount of golf specific strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and stability.

None of the above can be accomplished without an optimum level of golf specific fitness. When was the last time you made a swing and felt like it was an effortless, full and produced maximum power? Iím sure itís happened on occasion, but not as often as you want right?

The reason why is your body canít produce a repetitively powerful swing. Itís not capable of it. Why? Because you need to work on it Ďoff the courseí with simple golf strength and stretches to build up the golf specific muscles that can make this happen.

To improve golf driving distance you must take this attitude. If not, be ready to accept the same swing, game and results youíve been getting for a long time. I donít mean to mix words, but the truth is needed. No sugar-coating! This is ďthrowing all the cards on the tableĒ and deciding how bad you want to improve your golf driving distance.

Golfers have been bombarded with ads about the latest-greatest driver, guaranteed to add 30 yards to your driving distance. I say bs on that. Itís you that swings that club. Doesnít matter what club you have if your body is in poor condition.

The critical area to work on for the quickest results is your core (mid-section). Your core is the engine that drives the swing and produces all the power. Youíve got to strengthen this area from a rotational standpoint to improve golf driving distance.

Not only will this approach improve your golf driving distance, but it will eliminate low back pain and injury. Low back pain is the most common complaint among golfers. Itís no wonder since the golf swing is such a torquing movement that directly affects the lower back if you have weak and restricted muscles.

The benefits far outweigh the effort involved. Longer drives, no more injuries and years of golf enjoyment. Thereís no better return than that. So take a different approach to improve golf driving distance.
