In his research studying millions of amateur and professional shots, Mark Broadie also noticed that not only do tour players hit farther than amateurs…they also hit twice as straight.

The main thing I want to share with you about hitting the driver straight it to minimize the amount of club face rollover in the swing, in particular a foot or so on either side of impact.

Take a look at these screenshots of PGA Tour player Peter Uihlein. He’s hitting an iron here, but you can see that his clubface is, for the most part, square to his swing path through impact.

I’m not sure why, but it’s been very popular for many years to teach people to rotate the club face 90 degrees around the shaft…

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
