Build Driving Muscles For Distance

Build Driving Muscles For Distance

You know you can not win the Indianapolis 500 in a Volkswagen. Why not? Because you do not have enough horse power. You need some muscle in that car if you want to win, and it is the same way when you hit a golf ball. In order to get power you have to have a little muscle, you have to develop some muscle to get clubhead speed. Now the way I work on it, and I have had some success winning the South Florida Long Driving Championship at 381 yards one foot when I was 47 years old, so I know what it takes to swing the club with velocity. This is one of the best tools ever made for that; it is called the Power Swing Fan. The Power Swing Fan works by the harder you swing the more resistance that comes from the blades, so it makes you work even harder with the core of your body, the trunk and the arms. When we get to the top of the backswing, right at shoulder height, we get it in good position. Be sure again to use the trunk and arms, not the hands so much, and fire that body through there to the through swing position. The harder you swing the more resistance you get. Then you may be able to do something like this. Take your driver, go up to the ball, look out at the lake and say wow, I have enough clubhead speed to drive that ball a good distance. How about this. Right over the outcropping. Over the lake. Now I have a 9-iron, not a 5-iron into the green.
