4 Ways to Beat the Long Hitter
1. Hit it straight
Nothing gets inside a long hitter’s head faster than a fairway-hitting opponent. Chances are the long hitter is not the most accurate driver of the golf ball, keep the heat on by hitting the fairway as much as possible. If you have to use a hybrid club or an iron off the tee to keep the ball in the fairway, the mental edge of hitting the fairway outweighs the loss of distance.
2. Hit the green
Most of if not all of the time you will be hitting first, keep the heat on by hitting the green If he knows you are looking at birdie putts all day, it starts to wear on him
3. Have a good short game
The short game is the true equalizer on the golf course. If you have a sharp short game you can compete against any golfer on the planet.
4. Ignore his distance
Accept the fact that he hits the ball 50 to 60 yards past you. If you accept the fact that distance doesn’t matter, you will have another psychological advantage. What difference does it make if he is hitting a pitching wedge and you are hitting a 7 iron for your second shot? Golf is all about getting the ball in the hole in the fewest strokes, not how you got the ball in the fewest strokes.
When you are playing a match against a long hitter, and let’s face it, with the technology in golf clubs, golf balls, strength training, and nutrition, guys are hitting the ball 300 plus yards on a regular basis. The fact still remains that when you are on the golf course you are walking (or riding) with a bag of tools. It is just a matter of using the right tool for the task at hand. Does it really matter what club it takes you to hit a golf ball 150 yards? Whether it’s a 6, 7,8, or 9 iron should not matter to you, and your opponents’ club selection should be the last thing on your mind during a match.
The pride of the long hitters game is hitting it long, so the fact that you can compete with him without having to hit the 300 yards drives is already an advantage in your favor if you choose to look at it that way. As a short hitter, you should focus on keeping the pressure on as much as possible. The four steps that I have outlined will give you the mental edge that you need to negate the long drives that your opponent is blasting past you.
