Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

One of the secrets to hitting consistently solid golf shots is to swing at 90% of your power. 

Why 90% with your irons?  The irons are accuracy clubs, not distance clubs.  Rather taking an extra club and swinging at 90% will lower both your scores and your handicap.

Ernie Els is also known as “The Big Easy” because of his silky smooth swing.  His secret?  Swing at 90%, I have very seldom seen Ernie swing at 100%.  Even on par 5’s.

In this Mel In Motion video golf tip, I demonstrate a 3-step process for determining 90% of your power.  

How to hit the ball at 90%.

Step 1.

Take your 100-yard club.  Set up a target at 50 yards.  Take a full backswing but vary the downswing speed until you can hit the ball 50 yards.  You now know what your 50% swing feels like.

Step 2.

Take your 1oo-yard club.  Set up a target at 75 yards.  Take a full backswing but vary the downswing speed until you can hit the ball 75 yards.  You now know what your 75% swing feels like.

Step 3.

To get the feel of your 90% swing, take your 100-yard club and hit a target that is 90 yards away.  Keep swinging until you can consistently hit the ball 90 yards.  Now take your 200-yard club and hit a target that is 180 yards away.  Those two practice sessions will give you the feel of what your 90% swing feels like.  This is the swing you should be using on the golf course if you really want to increase your accuracy.  Now you have The Big Easy’s 90% Golf Swing. Of course, you can still swing your driver 100% as that is your distance club!

As always, if you have any questions, email me at melsolegolf@gmail.com
