David Leadbetter: Hit Your Career-best Drives
To maximize driving distance, long-ball hitters like Bubba Watson (above) catch the ball on the upswing. Sweeping it off the tee increases the distance the ball stays in the air and reduces backspin, so it rolls more when it lands. This is the same approach to the driver I use when teaching my new A Swing. All you need to do is make some easy adjustments to hit longer drives. Follow these steps.
