overviewswing thoughts

OVERVIEW

Golfers of all abilities have one thing in common: the desire for more distance. With the driver, yes, but also with the irons, so you can hit more greens. When it comes to wedges, distance is equally important—not for power but for distance control. In this video, Golf Digest 50 Best Teacher Brian Manzella shows you how to optimize your distance skills in these three areas.
