Video – Where Does Power Come From In The Golf Swing?
What if you do have power … however, something’s blocking your power from happening smoothly in your golf swing? Thus, resulting in you often feeling as if you’re swinging too hard, too fast, too quick … and hitting errant shots!
In the world of athletics (golf included), there are multiple factors that contribute to the success of the participant … 3 of these factors are: speed, agility, and quickness.
- Speed – the ability to move the body in one direction as fast as possible while staying in control (yes, important in the golf swing)
- Agility – the ability to accelerate, stabilize, and quickly change directions with proper posture (yes, important in the golf swing)
- Quickness – the ability to react and move the body with a maximum rate of force (yes, important in the golf swing)
Whether it’s football, boxing, trail running, tennis, or golf … the better you’re able to control these 3 factors determines how well you do.
For example – a PGA or LPGA Tour Player spends much time in the off-season working on these 3 parts so that they can naturally improve the mechanics of their swing. Because these Players know that many of the swing techniques they’re trying to implement are dependent on what their body is capable of doing. And if the body isn’t capable of turning through like you want to … your brain will find a compensation to get around that problem.
Yet, these compensations create inconsistency in your golf swing such as lifting up, coming over the top, etc, etc
