Video Golf Tip | Swing Speed

It has been great seeing the younger players come into the game, hitting the ball so far, in a totally unrestricted and free way. I think the old fashion way of teaching, of constraining players, of making them worry about hitting the ball in the fairway and making them worry about perfection was not the right way to go. Even the legendary middle age players, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, they learned to hit the ball a long way first. Now how do we hit the ball a long way. We need to train to hit the ball further. A good strength and conditioning program is good and there is a controversy over whether you should be swinging something light, something like this Speed Stick, a dowel, a shaft without a head, or should I be swinging heavy weights. Most people have been swinging heavy weights. Because the system is so neurological that probably is the wrong approach. It is probably better for you to be swinging something like this Speed Stick, a dowel or just a shaft to swing faster and faster and faster rather than to train yourself with a heavy weight to swing slower.

Causes of Thin Shots Hitting the ball with the bottom of the club face can result from several different swing faults
Hitting Low Shots Choke down on the club slightly, keep the ball back in your stance, place 60% of your weight forward and finish low
Elevation Changes Affect Aim On shots that have a downhill or uphill elevation changes we tend to align ourselves incorrectly, so make these necessary corrections
