TPI co-founders Dave Phillips and Dr. Greg Rose share how you can increase distance off the tee by optimizing launch conditions.

Can you hit up too much? When I've been fitted the fitter wants me to tee it lower but my numbers are always better teed high. Having said that I have hit up as much as 10 degrees but I get good distance for my swing speed and I hit 60 percent of the fairways so I don't really want to change.

Jim Eathorne says:

Great stuff guys! I worked with you back in the early days of TPI, and have not had a better golfing experience since! At that time you fitted me with a 7.5 degree driver in an effort to get my spin down, I now play with an 11 degree driver have lowered my spin but still struggle with swing speed and spin. I spent all last year winter working on swing speed training to increase driver distance to very little avail. This was the best explanation I have heard about other ways to reduce spin. I'm looking forward to trying it out at my next practice session!
