Will yoga help me to hit the ball farther? This is a question I asked myself many times in my first few months of playing golf. No matter how hard I tried, I could not hit a drive longer than 200 yards. At the time I was coming over the top and had a huge slice which definitely did not help my distance. At one point I even tried to make my swing much longer in hopes of reaching the vaunted 300 yard mark. I can honestly say it wasn’t worth it because of the inconsistencies. That said, after taking up yoga I can say that my golf game has improved drastically.
