3. Use Your Body For Power

Every good golfer knows that power comes from the body, not the arms. To learn to power the club with your body instead of your arms and hands, put the club behind the ball at address, with your body in a dead-stop position. Without taking a backswing, try to drag the ball into the air. If you're a player who uses his or her hands to control the club, you'll probably struggle at first. However, you'll quickly find that once you start moving the club with your body, you'll begin to get the ball in the air more consistently. This helps you turn fully through the ball on the downswing.

    1. You know that the traditional golf swing is so hard to time. Even professionals who practice every day struggle sometimes with timing. But for the average golfer timing is next to impossible with the traditional golf swing. However, that’s all going to change for you now. Because in The Stress-Free Golf swing there’s only one move you need to perfect. And when you implement this one move, it will drive your entire swing and help you to hit the ball properly and with control! http://dld.bz/secretbenhoganmove

      1. Alex, that is very common.

        What often happens is people will use their arms more to add power. This messes up the technique completely. Remember, power comes from the hips and everything should flow together. It’s really worth checking out the guide ‘Monster Golf Swing’ which really helps with this. You can find it at: http://www.MonsterSwing.info

        GolfTipsMag also have loads of gems on their website to learn from. Hope this helps!

  1. You forget the most important tip. KEEP THE SPINE IN PLACE and rotate around it. That way you impact the ball just as you set it up. Greatest golf fault is getting the spine out of place. If you manage to not do that all the rest is just simple fine tuning.

  2. One point I think it?۪s for every golfers that power comes from the body not from the arm but the steps you described will be appropriate for a left hander as well? I got a good PDF how to use the left palm during a swing from TheGolfersWebsite. If anybody wants then I can share that PDF here.

  3. Tip number three is something that took me a long time to learn. I lost a lot of accuracy and finesse when I tired to put a lot of power into my hit. Once I focused on my form, the power came naturally. The Happy Gilmore method doesn’t really work.

  4. That makes sense that you’d want to use your body for power in your swing. The whole body working together has more strength than your arms do alone. I bet that will improve my swing. I know that I have the tendency to only use my arms, so this will be an adjustment.

  5. I am constantly on the lookout for informative golfing blogs. Not only do I work in a golf schools I am also an avid golfer. There is always room for knowledge and improvement when it comes to golf. I really enjoyed this post and always look forward to learning more! Great read!
