Hitting the sweet spot will result in longer shots with the same swing speed. Another way to increase distance is to simply swing faster. If you can keep your contact quality the same the ball will go further. These improvements are usually attained by improving your swing or by diligent practice. Another factor that we are learning increases driver distance is the angle of attack at which we swing the club into the ball. Studies using the advanced launch monitor Trackman Pro have shown that with a swing speed of 90 mph (average for male amateur players) a change in angle of attack from minus five degrees to plus 5 degrees will increase driver shots by 20 yards or more. Obviously if you hit down on your driver you would want to change this if you can. You can improve your golf swing by increasing your "golf fitness". You can do drills that strengthen the right muscles allowing you to swing faster.
This is the reason you see professional golfers in the fitness room these days. They want to add yards to their drives and prevent injuries. The final way to increase distance is your equipment. Once you know your swing you can then look to optimize your driver to "fit" your swing and produce the longest shots. This requires no work on your golf swing or any strength training and in most cases can add quite a few extra yards. This is by far the easiest way to add distance. There are many things that go into optimizing a driver. The following things all must be accurately measured for the particular player hitting the ball: swing weight shaft flex shaft kick point torque shaft length overall club weight club head (including aerodynamics center of gravity etc.) and more.

Adjustable Weights When reading golf driver reviews you might hear the term "adjustable weights". Some modern-day drivers have adjustable weights in the sole or internal weighting to help golfers reduce a slice or hook. For the most part this feature is pretty limited to a small percentage of new golf drivers. If an adjustable weight system does not sound like a desirable feature slice golfers should choose a driver with a draw bias while hook golfers should choose a driver with a slice bias. Additional Technological Advancements Most manufacturers today are continuously pushing the envelope with regards to USGA limits. There is a limitation of 5900 gram-centimeter squared with regards to Moment of Inertia (MOI). This term refers to the clubheads resistance to twisting when off-center shots are made. The greater the MOI rating the more forgiveness that golfers will receive from off-center shots.
