Video Golf Tip | Increasing Power on the Golf Swing

I’m not mad. This is a power tip and you just didn’t know it. You can learn something from what I am doing but don’t do this drill inside as you might break a few things. As I throw this club from side to side and whip it out on the range, imagine what I am using. I have some hand action, but my arm is not staying behind me as I throw, my arm is moving from my right side of my body over to the left side of my body, just like if I were going to throw a golf ball or anything else. As I throw my arm around my body to the left you can see my body turning as I do the same thing. There’s another throw. Notice my arm got thrown over here to the left and my whole body turned around. Now the same thing applies when you are swinging at a golf ball. You have your arms swinging from the right side of your body over to the left side. I wouldn’t throw this club with just my pivot. I wouldn’t throw it with just my hands, but I would use my arms, hands and pivot, everything throwing the club around me. This is what it would look like with a golf ball. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? So if you want more distance and more power, be sure to take your arms and throw them to the left side of you while you are turning and using your hands too. Use it all. Best of luck.
