Solid concepts to test if you want MORE Distance w/ Clay Ballard

Today we’re talking through some unique concepts to explore if you want to increase distance and gain club head speed.

Guess what… You can probably gain club head speed and hit the ball farther.

We talk with Clay Ballard of Top Speed Golf and learn about some of the key concepts you need to understand if you want to hit the ball further.

It all starts with your mindset. If you haven’t checked out the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Dr Carol Dweck it’s a great one to check out.

In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb.

In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.

After you have this mindset you can implement and test some of the concepts and strategies Clay and I discuss during this podcast. All of them might not work for you but one might be the perfect cue for you and your swing.

About Clay Ballard

clay ballardI’ve been addicted to golf since my first 18 holes at twelve years old. From there I played in college and a little on the mini tours. Unfortunately while I was playing full time, I never reached my full potential for ball striking. I always had unanswered questions.

Feeling like I was always “missing a piece” to the swing fueled my fire for knowledge on the game. Since then I have learned 2 very important things everyone should know.

Once we know how to move the body, we can control our club, and therefore the ball.
When improving our game, it is important to change the one thing that will fix 5 or 10 things. This is the basis for the huge results you can get from the 5 moves of the Top Speed Golf System

After years, and countless hours of research, I have found the keys to great ball striking. I play a lot less and hardly practice now, but I hit the ball farther and more solidly than when I was practicing full time.

I will share those same secrets that have helped my golf game and hundreds of my students on this website.

So if you are ready to Drive it Farther, Compress the Golf Ball, and be The Guy in your group everyone is jealous of, let’s get started!!
