I couldn't say why; I'm guessing it's keeping the hips (or shoulders) closed a little longer.
This is exactly what I wrote about in the thread I posted the other day--but I was initially talking about getting the disc out nose down.

I played Thursday knowing in my previous round, I had not been able to duplicate my field work on the course. I had some of my best drives ever on the more open holes. Couple that I screwed up, but I think that holding the disc a fraction longer can add a lot of snap and distance.
