David Leadbetter is one of the best and most famous golf coaches in the world. He rose to fame helping Nick Faldo win a hatful of majors back in the 80s and 90s and he's still coming out with great tips for golfers of all skill levels.


The Tip

In this video David talks about modifying the angle of attack to get the ball travelling further. Leadbetter goes on to mention:

  • To get the ball further you need good carry
  • Clubs with more loft help the pros achieve this but there swing speed is a lot faster
  • Maximise your launch angle - by using more loft
  • A greater launch angle will get the ball travelling further
  • Think about taking a softer shaft to get the ball flying
  • The pros have gone up in loft - so should you
