More distance

| Golf

All of a sudden I've acquired additional yardage to my shots. My 3 wood is flying past where my driver used to go. My wedge is easily flying as far as my eight iron.

This is good and bad. Good in the sense that my balls off the par five tees are landing within hitting distance of the green. Bad in that a simple chip shot to the par threes is flying way over the green.

So where did this added distance come from? I do not hit the ball any harder, in fact I believe that my swing has actually become smoother and less hurried.

It's all in the timing. The feel of the ball flying off of the club face during the perfect swing feels invigorating.

That is, as long as I aim properly and the balls I hit fly true.
