Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

In this month’s video golf tip with Mel, you’ll learn how to unleash more power in your golf swing by adjusting the finer points of your backswing.

The Two Biggest Keys!

Width and Width!  Yes, the width of both the backswing and the follow-through play an important role in generating more power in the golf swing.  Think of a large wheel.  It will generate a lot more speed than a little wheel.  So a big arc will generate a lot more speed than a smaller arc.

The Drill!

Start by teaching yourself to take the club back at least halfway back with both arms still straight.  The wider, the better.  This might feel uncomfortable at first, but the important thing is to get a wide as you can as fast as you can.  Do not worry about hitting bad shots on the range. This is part of the learning process!  Once this starts to feel comfortable, you are ready for phase two of this process.

As you swing through, try and extend your arms as far as you can.  Again, both arms should be straight when you get to hip height.  Think of trying to touch the clubhead to the other side of the driving range.  The feeling I get is that my arms are about to come right out of their sockets!  The momentum of the club should then take you all the way to a full follow-through.  Allow your hips to be rotated all the way through to the target, and all your weight is on the front foot.  You should be able to pick up your back foot and not lose your balance.

You now know How to Generate More Swing Power, so go out and grip it ad rip it!
