Richman: Choke down for more distance
Maybe for someone who hits it dead flush almost every time, like a tour down. But I think for the average joe like me that hits it all over the face of the driver on any given day, I'm likely to either gain a little distance on average or at least stay the same with gained accuracy. Kim is doing that because as a youngster he had too long clubs and he grew up taking the grip a bit lower and has not been able to give this up. It has nothing to do with gaining accuracy.
I think I know the reasoning behind this approach. Most "average" Golfers generally don't make solid contact ruffa may quinto sex scandal the sweet-spot, golf therefore are not achieving optimum distance for their particular swing-speed.
I remember him saying that Choking made him a shorter driver so he wouldn't have to choke up, but every time he hit it, he would choke up automatically.
