Speed Through

Speed ThroughMany amateur golfers sacrifice power and distance because they become infatuated with swinging at the ball—not through it. They’re so intently focused on making solid contact that they become fixated with the point of impact.

Squat For Power

Squat For PowerTo begin the downswing, I squat to create leverage. The squat disappears as my left leg straightens, however. This move creates tremendous power and speed.

Start Ahead

Start AheadWe all know that powerful drivers of the golf ball have great extension of the arms past the golf ball.

Stay Back To Bash It

Hit higher, longer drives

Stay Back To Bash ItWhen we talk about the golf swing, oftentimes, as both students and instructors, we become overly fixated on moving our body toward the target.

Staying On-Plane

Staying On-PlaneA major fault of both accomplished and recreational golfers alike is taking the club too far inside on the backswing. This inside position generally leads to the club getting stuck behind the right hip (for right-handed golfers) on the downswing, preventing the desired, down-the-line release. Getting stuck too far inside creates a number of problems, the most serious of which is a compensatory flipping of the hands at impact, a move that creates nothing but glancing blows and non-compressed golf shots.

Sweet Spot: Davis Love III

Sweet Spot: Davis Love III

Davis Love III is that rare breed of golfer who enters every tournament with a great chance to win. One of the reasons for this is his prowess with the driver. Last year, Love averaged 299 yards off the tee and notched a Total Driving ranking (accuracy plus distance) of 26, which fueled four wins and paychecks totaling $6 million. With such length off the tee, hitting greens in regulation—the most important scoring indicator—becomes a less daunting task.
