Learn what Louis Oosthuizen says about how to hit far like Dustin Johnson
You aren’t Dustin Johnson.
But even an average (or below average) size person can still pump some more speed into the swing. Take it from Louis Oosthuizen, who isn’t scaring any muggers away at 5-foot-11, 160 pounds. He has two easy tips that will help anybody get longer.
“A lot of players mess around with their grips to try to get longer, but they stop there,” Oosthuizen says. “You need to get your arms relaxed when you start, centered on your chest and positioned with the elbows pointing down.” This configuration lets your arms lash through the ball with speed, like the snap of a fishing rod, instead of moving stiffly and slowly.
