Winning formula for distance

So many people focus on clubhead speed—which is important. But it’s the resulting ball speed that ultimately leads to distance. It matters where you hit on the face when it comes to distance. Clubhead speed is great, but is your ball speed where it should be in relation to that club speed?

A couple of ways to check where you’re hitting the ball on the clubface is to use a little powder spray. As the ball comes off the face after you’ve made a swing, you’ll be able to see where the impact mark is.
