If you work on making your swing more efficient and work on hitting the ball solid, you will get longer off the tee.
If you focus solely on getting longer off the tee, you will likely get worse at golf…and probably get shorter and more crooked off the tee.
If you work on hitting wedges really solid and consistent, you will increase your AVERAGE driving distance.
If you work on doing things that make you hit driver as far as possible, your wedge game will suffer.
Seeing a trend?
BTW, I have more experience and experience on today’s subject than almost anyone in golf.
I used to spend early September trying to hit is as far as could, getting ready for the big long drive contest…now the Remax World’s. I would then spend the next 3 weeks trying to find the wedge game I destroyed before the first stage of Q-school.
I would always drive the ball more consistently after hitting a few hours of wedges then I would after a few days of trying to kill it. Hitting lots of wedges is how you develop good balance, rhythm and timing.
