Guys, see this

http://www.sirshanksalot.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1297&Itemid=44


I would also add that learning to generate lag does help distance

http://www.deeprough.com/index.php/2007/12/07/create-lag-golf-swing/

I love this quote

"CONSCIOUSLY thinking about holding the release, delaying the hands, WHEN MAKING A GOLF SWING is the quickest way to destroy your swing. When you practice, sure, focus on where your hands need to be in the slot on the way back down using a pump drill or some variant of it. But when you are making an actual downswing it has to be a complete abandonment of positions, it is giving up control to get control, it is swinging the club from the body, it is creating lag."

I played the best golf of my life (shot an 82 on a tough course) months ago, and in that round, I didn't once think about my swing. I just swung loose and easy, thinking instead of where I want the ball to land.

Have heard horror stories about that place -- some idiot local langgar you (or your car), and you are at fault because (and this was quoted from a police officer at the scene of the accident) "this accident would not have happened if you were not in this country"... wtf. go figure.

i know how to make your drive further.

1. elevate the tee box.

2. Put giant hollywood SFX fan behind the tee box.

3. pave concrete on the whole fairway.

Now on night shift. Sometimes nothing to do, so to keep myself awake, I have been surfing a lot of golfing sites.

I came across this interesting topic about Power Accumulators: In simplfied english

’#1: Bent right arm straightening (muscle power)

’#2: Left wrist going from cocked to uncocked (velocity power)

’#3: Rolling the hands (transfer power)

’#4: Shoulder turn (radial power)

Depending on whether you are a hitter or a swinger, you can only achieve 3 out of the 4 accumulators. Only the true golf masters are able to acheive all 4.

Heres the site

I learnt this from the thread "what is lag?"

Justin Tang at Laguna teaches based on Homer Kelly's TGM (The Golf Machine) theories.

Can try, who knows?

What works for one person may not work for another, and vice-versa.

Personally, I have to admit I will hit only about 180-200 m total.

I am switching my practice time to chipping, pitching & putting--the vital scoring aspects.

My coach says that over 60% of a average round of golf involves approach and green shots/putts.

Dun need to be long-distance hitter to lower scores.
