Golf Tips - Perfecting Your Golf Swing - Increasing Your Drive Power

By Sean M. Cochran

Your Body Supports Your Golf Swing

The golf swing is arguably one of the most difficult athletic movements to perform in sport today. It requires you to draw the club in a sequential order, on a specific path, with the correct time. Error in order, swing path, or timing can result in a poor outcome.

These biomechanics of the golf swing are executed by your body, and in order to successfully deliver the clubhead to the golf ball. Certain physical components within the body are needed.

High levels of flexibility, balance, strength, endurance, and power are required from your body in order to execute the mechanics of the golf swing efficiently. If the body is lacking in any one of these physical components the ability to execute the golf swing may be compromised.

Make certain in the development of your golf swing, developing your body around the golf swing is part of your equation for success.

Increasing the Power in Your Drives

Increased power in your golf swing usually equates to more distance on every shot in your game. Increased power in the golf swing is translated to clubhead speed. The faster at which the clubhead is moving when it contacts the ball, the more distance you should have on your tee shots.

Increased power outputs within the golf swing are contingent upon two separate yet connected entities. Number one is your golf swing mechanics.

The "coiling" and "uncoiling" of the body creates power within the mechanics of the golf swing. Increase the efficiency at which you perform the mechanics of the golf swing. The greater likelihood an increase in clubhead speed will occur.

Second in the development of more power in your golf swing is your body. Power in relation to your body is the ability of the body to create the greatest amount of force in a short amount of time. Improve the rate at which your body develops power within the mechanics of the golf swing, an increase in clubhead speed and distance in your drives can occur. *

The Rounded Golf Swing A rounded golf swing lets the club face get square at impact and cocks your wrists naturally
Teeing The Ball Up Tee the ball up with your driver but tee it down with the rest of your clubs
Slicing: Open Clubface Slicing is caused by an open clubface, fix this by turning your top hand clockwise and practice swinging with a closed clubface
