Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

Many students of our golf school share a common goal: getting more distance from their swing. In this month’s video golf tip, our Class A PGA Instructor David Olberding demonstrates two important factors in creating more clubhead speed.

What are the two Power Producers?  Wrist Hinge and Full Shoulder Turn.  Without doing these two important parts in your golf swing you will never learn to hit the golf ball with any power!

Wrist Hinge.

What we typically see with our students in the golf school is a backswing with very little wrist hinge.  This prevents the all-important “lag” on the downswing and a loss of clubhead speed.  Practice at home in front of a mirror, and see if you can hinge the wrists so that you get about a 90-degree angle between the lead forearm and the club shaft.  If you currently do not do this, practicing at home is a great way to ingrain this move.

Shoulder Turn.

Another position we typically see with our golf school students at the top of their backswing is a lack of shoulder turn.  As we age, it gets tougher and tougher to maintain flexibility,  unless you re working out every day.  So to make it easier to turn the shoulders, you must turn the hips.  By flaring the back foot out about 30-degrees you can get a slightly bigger hip rotation and also a bigger shoulder rotation.

The combination of a better wrist hinge and a bigger shoulder turn will have you hitting the ball further in no time!
