This Titleist Tip from the Tour is with Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello. His classic swing and creative shot-making abilities promise to serve him well on the worldwide stage as his game continues to blossom.
Hitting shorter irons on approach shots can certainly improve your odds of hitting more greens, and in this week’s tip, Rafa has some great keys for those times when you need a little extra distance on your tee shot.
“I recommend getting a little wider in your stance so that your weight can shift from your right side to your left side a bit better,” Rafa told us. “Transferring the weight forward and towards the ball allows you to use your legs as leverage and hit it really hard.”
The next time you have an opportunity to get aggressive off the tee, instead of swinging your arms faster, remember Rafa’s advice to focus on your weight shift. Let us know if it works for you as well as it does for Señor Cabrera-Bello.
