Unless you are born with freakish talent there’s a good chance at some stage in your golfing life you have been trying to hit the golf ball further. Golfers are genetically wired to want more and more distance off the tee. Modern day giant killers off the tee such as Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott inspire and sometimes humiliate us with their monster drives down the fairways. The longer you are off the tee the easier the game generally is. Of course if you are spraying the golf ball left and right into trouble no amount of distance will ever save you.
