If you were to create a list of the longest hitters on Tour, Tony Finau would most certainly make the cut. What’s interesting is that Finau doesn’t even go all-out with the driver — a sobering realization for most golfers.
During a recent interview with GOLF’s “Fully Equipped” podcast, Finau discussed a myriad of topics, including leaving something in the tank on drives. You can listen to Finau complete interview below. But here are a few highlights:
On swinging within himself: “If I can live around 180 mph ball speed, I’m good. I can get another 20 to 25 mph more, but I never really use that on the course. If I knew where it was going, I probably would. But I don’t have the accuracy with that kind of speed that’s required to play high-level golf.”
On launch monitor usage: “I use my Foresight GC Quad all the time. It’s portable, so I can take it to the range or on the course. I focus on launch angle, spin and carry numbers. Those are the most important to me.”
