More importantly, whats your ball speed? You need to increase both to get more distance.

What's your driver distance with that 102 speed? How old are you? body type? Swing type? clubs? So many variables fit into adding swing speed and distance.

Yes I'm 16 years old about 5'7" pretty skinny. I carry it around 220. I currently use an Adams speed line ls. I have it set in a 10.5.

A couple of things from a technical or mechanical point of view.

1. Grip pressure. Maintain a light grip pressure. Tight muscles are slow muscles. Not to mention a death grip does not allow proper hinge and release.

2. Speaking of release. Are you a little flippy at impact which will add tons of spin. I think you could or should get a little more carry with the 102.

3. More down turn. More shoulder turn does not mean a horizontal turn. Get you lead shoulder down a little more.You can easily take yourself off of the ball. Then you have a lateral shift that will be a massive power leak. Not too mention you get on the downrange side of the ball... likely resulting in a block... although pulls are not uncommon from this.

4. Stay in the shot. It ties in with the lateral shift but play in between your feet like mentioned in Point 3 and make sure that your trailing shoulder gets down a through.

5. Ball position. At all costs do not hit driver with a descending blow which results in more spin.

6. Core.... work on your core. Size and weight is not the be all end all with clubhead speed. What does Villegas weigh? 150 after a full course meal????
