My secret to hitting it long using driver means 180m carry + roll

Few things I started to pay more attention:

1. grip with fingers

2. Turn my shoulder instead of just my arms

3. focus on following thru and keeping the driver head as low as possible after contact....

4. lastly...pray that the ball does not do 'power slice'

after rehearsing it at the range .....so far so good


hope this tip will help all those who are suffering the same as me

I'm using this method as well..
I will pick a marker close to the tee-up ball for the follow thru..

I tried making sure my right shoulder do not out race my left a shoulder on impact. That helps to kill slices.
The other thing is that I try standing with my right leg alittle back of my left more of a close stand. So I can just swing hard and not having slices

Ah, power management ~ that's always the philosophy to conserve energy (for buggy on track courses).......

Yes, this will promote more penetrating ball trajectory ...

I let my hands dropped to my right hip then I turn my hips, shoulders and hands as fast as possible to have a crack at the ball... the feeling of smashing at a badminton shutter as the club head hits the ball...

Why stop at 180m when you can go 450m? Try this method: Louis Oosthuizen hits 500 yards, which is about 450m. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXq-ZTPpRQ4
Combine with Duval_S secret methods, maybe can go 550m Razz
