‘Using Your Body To Get Through The Golf Ball For Power!’

This Week’s Video – Create Natural Power Without Swinging Too Hard!

Does Power come from the Turn? Does it come from your hips? Does it come from whipping your arms & hands? Or is it the perfect combination that creates your very best shots?

Yet, when Golfers want to give a little extra power to a shot … those body parts often have different ideas on what creates power. Thus, we mostly experience bad shots when trying to hit the golf ball a little farther than our skill level allows.

This week’s video focuses on how to get your body more connected to produce better shots more often … by hitting from the knees!

‘Getting Through The Golf Ball For More Distance Can Be Improved With One Simple Move!’

Watch This Week’s Video – Flare It Out & Air It Out!

If you’re having trouble getting through the golf ball … does that mean you need to force your hips and shoulders to turn?

What if I told you that something as simple as turning your foot could improve your shoulder and hip turn … resulting in a smoother swing? The PGA Tour Pros do it … do you?

This week’s video will show you how simple it can be to improve your turn, follow-through, and finish!

‘You Can Practice Distance & Accuracy At The Same Time Using This Drill!’

Watch This Week’s Video!

Finding the perfect combination of distance and accuracy should be at the top of the list for any Golfer that wants to have fun playing golf. Because when you do find your swing … you hit your best, most satisfying golf shots.

Though, most Golfers we meet are working on their golf swing with the “Either Or” Approach. Meaning they’re either working on distance or accuracy … however, they aren’t doing the things necessary to work on both at the same time.

Many Golfers that work on fixing their slice … end up losing a lot of the distance they used to have. So working on Distance & Accuracy together is ‘muy importante!’ … if you truly want to become more consistent.

This week’s video should help you to better understand how you can practice both without overthinking!

Use Natural Hip & Body Movement To Create Consistency & Power In Your Golf Swing

‘It’s As Simple As A Wood-Chop! Chop Wood For Golf Swing Consistency!’

Consistency is more easily repeated when your body works together to create a powerful golf swing.

Yet, because much of the Golf Instruction that’s readily available focuses on working on individual parts until their perfect: hips, shoulders, arms, wrists, weight shift, head down, left arm straight. Many Golfers become ‘Head Cases’ when they can’t coordinate these movements on a fairly consistent basis!

When you can Feel your body working together … it’s much easier to repeat the good swings, as well as experiencing far less anxiety while trying to find your “Lost Swing!”

This week’s video should help you to better understand how the hip turn, shoulder turn, and weight shift can happen more naturally

Releasing Your Golf Swing To Hit The Golf Ball Farther … Watch This Week’s Video!

Golfers looking for more distance are often battling between swaying too much or protecting against the sway by standing overly stiff. Even the PGA & LPGA Tour Players have to work on balancing too much vs too little while they practice. So you probably should also!

We have found that the more successful the Golfer … the better they’re able to find the balance between power and control. The less skilled the Golfer … the harder it is to find that balance.

So how can you release more power while maintaining accuracy?

With this week’s video/drill, you can start determining how much is too much, how much is too little, and of course … how much is perfect for your golf swing.

Create Power In Your Golf Swing For More Distance

‘Learn To Balance Accuracy With The Desire For Distance’
When you try to smash the ball as far as you can … you’ll see your accuracy decrease

Which often leads many Golfers to being overly focused on swinging slower than they are capable of … just so you can “Keep The Ball In Play”

Which causes you to hit the ball 20 yards less than you should be … making holes play longer … and rarely allowing yourself to experience the exhilaration of ‘Bombing A Drive Down The Fairway!’

Being able to balance power  … while maintaining enough accuracy to keep the golf ball in play – is what the PGA & LPGA Tour Players also have to be conscious about every time they swing

Yet, the Tour Players didn’t master that balance overnight … it takes years of practice mixed with trial and error … to earn the high level of control they have … both physically and mentally

This week’s video gives you a visual of how you can start syncing your body, arms and legs to hit longer golf shots while “Keeping The Ball In Play”

Stop Swinging Too Hard With Your Driver!

There’s nothing more satisfying than walking off the 18th green knowing that you hit your Driver well all day. So to have that happen more often … when hitting your Driver – should you try to:

A) Swing with more effort than you swing your pitching wedge

B) Swing with less effort than you swing your pitching wedge

C) Swing with the same effort as you swing your pitching wedge

We often see the greatest improvement from Golfers when they learn to allow for the same amount of effort with their Driver as they are using with their pitching wedge … and simply trusting the club to do the work!

It’s frustrating when a Golfer knows that he/she shouldn’t swing so hard, yet slice after slice – we continue to do it! “Oh, dang it … I just tried to kill that golf ball!”

Though, at GMS we’ve found that many of the Golfers that feel as if they’re swinging too hard … are actually struggling because they decelerate with their Driver.

Deceleration? Why Does It Feel As If You’re Swinging Too Hard?

There are two ways you may decelerate, yet feel as if you’re swinging too hard –

1. you could be slowing your body on the forward swing … which causes your arms to fling forward without much control like a slingshot. Although, many Golfers blame their arms … it’s the body stopping that caused the arms to fling forward without control

2. your arms could be slowing down (because you’re trying to swing slower) while your body continues to move as it should – which may give you the feeling of “I’m getting too far ahead of the ball … I feel like I’m lunging at the ball”.

Either way – it’ll appear to others (and to yourself) that you’re swinging too hard because the swing didn’t look smooth.

Yet, in reality, all that’s happening is that either your arms or body is decelerating. And because you looked and felt so discombobulated – it feels and appears as if you’re swinging too hard.

Yes, deceleration is often pegged to other shots/clubs such as chips, wedges and putting … but, it does also happen many times with Driver. Because the accumulation of constantly being told that you’re swinging too hard has Golfers standing over the golf ball repeating “swing nice ‘n easy, nice ‘n easy, nice ‘n easy”. Which may contribute to you decelerating.

Fortunately, all that maybe happening is that your arms or body is decelerating. And because you looked so out of control – it appears as if you were swinging harder than you should.

Though – if you’re body and arms are moving together at any speed – it would appear as if you had made a smooth golf swing. As the typical PGA Tour Pro swings his Driver at 120 mph and the average 90 shooter swings at 85 mph … yet, the Pro looks smoother while swinging at 35 mph faster!

Believe me, I wish I could give you a guaranteed way to never swing too hard or too slow again. However, learning to have your arms and body working together is a great place to start!

And … next week … we begin a new video series on how to get your body and arms working together for a smoother, more consistent golf swing. Be on the lookout for our next issue of Golf Improvement Weekly!

The Happy Golfer finds consistency with their Driver by understanding how to get their arms and body working together to produce a smooth swing

The Monkey swings too hard, then swings too easy, then swings too hard, then …Go ahead, Be a Happy Golfer!

Are You Coming Over The Top In Your Golf Swing? (video) – Golf Improvement Weekly

‘Over The Top, Outside In, Casting … Why Can’t I Stop?’

The over-taught golf swing often creates problems … rather than solving them. One of these swing issues is often mis-diagnosed as a ‘Cause’ … when in fact, it’s an ‘Effect’.
“If I could fix my over the top swing …I could hit the ball better!”
Yet, the more things you try to incorporate into your golf swing … the more bouts of inconsistency you need to battle against.

Why You May Have Trouble Completing Your Follow Through (video) – Golf Improvement Weekly

‘Are You Hanging Back And Having Trouble Finishing Your Swing?!’

A huge number of Golfers tell us they have trouble shifting their weight & following through … which causes them to lose distance and accuracy!
“If I could just shift my weight and complete my swing … I’d be happy!”
It seems like it should be such an easy thing to do … but, why do so many Golfers consistently have trouble finishing their swing?

How To Hit Your Fairway Woods

How often do you have the dilemma of hitting your Irons well, but not hitting your Driver or Fairway Woods well? A Golfer said to me the other day that he needs to work specifically on his Fairway Woods. And I believe that if he did hit his fairway woods better, that his scores would improve dramatically. So the next step has to be – how do we work on his Fairway Woods?

Do we go to the practice facility and practice hitting his 5-wood over and over until he hits it better? Do we have him hit a few shots with his Fairway Wood, then go over a drill for him to practice for five or ten minutes, then go back to hitting with his 5 wood?

How often are you hitting your 3 wood each round of golf?

So my question for you this week is – “How often are you hitting your 3 wood each round of golf?”

Nearly every Golfer that we see on the golf course is in the habit of using their 3 wood too often during a round of golf. In fact we believe that most Golfers could improve anywhere between 3 to 7 strokes by leaving their 3 wood at home! Now there are some Golfers that hit their 3 wood well … however, there are millions upon millions of Golfers that don’t.
