Tip from the Tour: Adam Scott on Longer Drives

Seeing a tee shot launch perfectly into the sky and soar down the fairway is something that all golfers love to see - especially if they're admiring their own drive. And if you can squeeze out a few more yards off the tee, well, we're guessing that would just about always be a welcome bonus.

So how do we make this happen? Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott recently checked in with Team Titleist to share a few keys on how to add a little extra distance off the tee. 

Key #1: Tee the ball slightly higher than usual. This simple adjustment produces a higher launch angle and less spin, a great combination for soaring drives.

Key #2: Focus on a full finish. This key will keep you in balance and give you a much better chance of making contact with the sweetspot of the driver.

So remember... a balanced swing combined with solid, center-of-the-face contact is going to give you better distance potential than swinging out of your shoes.

Give these keys a try and you'll be on your way to achieving power through control. Here’s to going long!

      Really like the tip from Adam, on to hit it longer,  Tee  it a little higher. He also tells us to make sure to follow through… Can't wait to get to driving range this afternoon… Thanks 4 all the TIPS… THG  The Happy Golfer.

    I really enjoy the tips from the Pros and it has helped my game in many ways.  I'd like to see a tip to help me pick out the correct golf ball for my game.

    Thanks Adam! Too often I do swing "outof my shoes" fertilizing the course rough with ProV1s. Love the focus on a full follow through and staying inbalance. No mention of "swing harder"...Thanks Adam..

    What a fantastic tip. Rather than adding extra "ooomph" to the swing, concentrate on a full follow through. Too often I force the swing flow when going for more yards sending me off balance and my ProV1 into the cabbage patch..

    THANKS Adam!

    A fantastic key! Stay balanced ans fully follow through for more power. I ididn't hear Adam say, "Swing harder." Too often I am guilty of trying to put a little extra "oooomph" in the swing, losing balance and sending the ball to parts of the course I'd rather not visit!  

    Thanks Adam..
