Thanks for the warm replies. Have been trying to gain more distance for my swing but still unable to master it. Any golf tips on this?

Btw, anyone knows where to get golf shoes? Was looking around for Adidas golflite but aparently alot of places no more stock. Sad

focus on solid contact not distance.
if you focus to much on getting farther, you tend hit hard and try to kill the ball, that's where all the swing faults starts to come in.

Now i got lots of swing faults...

Not your fault though, it seems anything people say these days always have "that" kind of connotation to me...
then I start imagining... then I close my eyes... then.. then...

I wonder if I should use the pro fees to get hours of psychotheraphy....

welcome Calvin,

for me wrist hinge and full release for extra distance. The rest is body rotation and speed up momentum towards impact, but yeah.. full wrist hinge and full release will do wonder in a more controlled way, well at least for me it did.
