An easy tip to add distance is to stand tall.

If you’re really bent over, as you take the club back and start to come into the ball, more than likely you’ll need to stand up. As you stand up, you lose the ability to press into the ground to capture all that power that increases our clubhead speed and adds more distance.

Standing a little taller than you normally would may require you to stand a little closer to the ball, but this will give you the feeling as you come down that you can go into the ground and create more power.
