Tips from the Tour: Martin Flores on Controlling Distance
Posted: July 2, 2013
Everyone here in Team Titleist can relate to the following scenario:
You stripe a drive down the middle of the fairway, and you're feeling great. Arriving at your ball, you see you're inside the 150-marker and looking to make birdie.
But, the yardage is between clubs. Do you baby a 9-iron, punch your pitching wedge or flush a gap wedge?
In the following video, Titleist Brand Ambassador Martin Flores shares his on-course strategy for controlling the distance of his Pro V1x golf ball with his Vokey wedges. Martin uses the guidelines of an "armpit to armpit swing" or a "shoulder to shoulder swing" to cue his swing to hit the ball either 130 or 120 yards, respectively.
What method do you like to use to control distance to stick your Titleist golf ball close? Is it swing length, speed of your swing, shoulder turn, wrist hinge, or something else?
