Get longer drives by developing a power back swing; try this golf tip to improve your drives and better your golf game in this free video golf lesson.
This segment is on long drives and power and the topic is the power back swing. How do you bring the club back to have your most power? To be in a position that you could give it the most? In general, you don't want to just use your hands, you don't want to just use your arms, you don't want to just use your body. So for starters, you want to use all three. You want a wrist hinge, you want an arm swing with the wrist hinge, and you want a body turn with the arm swing and the wrist hinge. In general, the more you could turn, the more you go with your arms, the more you go with your hands, the further back the club is going to go. Just like a pendulum, the further the club goes, the faster it's going to be at the bottom, the pendulum. So, John Daily is a good example, he brings the club back that far, and that is one of the main reasons he hits the ball so far. The further back it goes. Now, will you lose control? Yes, you'll have less control, but we're not talking about control now. We're talking about hitting the ball to your full potential. Jack Nicklaus was taught, first, hit it as hard as you can, and then learn how to get it where you want it. So that's what we're talking about here; club head speed, power, in general. The more you bring the club back with your wrist hinge, your arms and your body turn, the further back you could go, the faster it's going to be at the ball.
