Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

This month’s tip from the Mel in Motion series – 2 easy ways you can get more power from your golf swing… today!

There is 2 almost guaranteed move you can make in your golf swing that will give you more distance!  Width and width!  Yes, width on the backswing and width on the follow-through.  Next time you are watching golf on TV, watch the long hitters.  They all have huge swings, both back and through.  Rory McIlroy, definitely the longest hitter on Tour pound for pound has massive width on both the backswing and follow-through!

Backswing Width.

When you start your backswing, try and keep both arms straight for a long as possible.  Notice when you are in your address position, the arms form a V.  Keep the V on the backswing as long as possible.  Eventually, the momentum of the club going back will cock the wrists, and you can start the downswing with the of talked about shift of the hips to start generating speed.  

Follow-Through Width.

But, as you go through, recreate that V at impact and keep it for as long as possible on the follow-through.  The lead arm should not break down until the hands have passed hip height.  If you keep the clubhead traveling down the target line, you now have power and accuracy!  You’re welcome!
