Paul ,You are quite to the point with this video on how to improve POWER ,I would add That getting ” SPEED ” is Even more important .
I do about 300+ swings without a ball per day ,when I’m not on the golf course ,So it’s 6000 swings per month on average ( I’ m on the golf Course 3 Times a week )
There’s a différence with what you advocate : I mix OVERSPEEEDING swings ,and OVERLOADING swings .
For OVERSPEED swings ,I have several training aids :the MOMENTUS SWING WHOOSH ,the SUPERSPEED training sticks ,the ORANGE WHIP TRAINER ,as WELL as simple Alignment sticks.
For the OVERLOAD swings ,I have the MOMENTUS POWER HITTER ,the POWER FAN,the MOMENTUS very HEAVY Driver ( 44 Oz).
I Alternate 10 swings OVERLOAD ,then 10 Swings OVERSPEED ,all the Time keeping a watchful eye on the SWING SPEED RADAR ,and practising the swings in front of a Window ,to make sure m’y swing is all right .
Therefore ,on the course ,m’y swings and shots are very consistent ,the différence between them is only the distance they go .nô slicing ,nô hooking ,m’y main défault being Topping FAIRWAY Woods when I don’t move aggressively enough on the lead leg in the through swing .
That’s why JEREMY KINKHAMER ‘ s drills on swivelling the hips are So important !
Hey Paul happy new year to you, Jeremy, David and Pete! I appreciate all the effort ye put in to make this a wonderful golf site!
Thank you very much. We truly appreciate the support and will keep adding more tips to help improve everyone’s game.
Hi Paul, Happy New Year to you!
Question: when doing the drill you describe in this tip, how important is it to get all the other things right…weight on the inside of the right foot, elbow in close to the body on the downswing, head staying back, starting with the down-swing trigger we have chosen, etc.? I assume the answer is “very important.” But you only stress getting the arms up to the top, nothing else.
Perhaps all you want us to focus on is starting with the lower legs and having powerless arms.
Which is it?
In this drill you are just trying to increase your leg drive. The other stuff is important too but you can’t work on everything. Get good at this and you can start checking the other things too.

Paul, thank you for tweeking my swing. I find that if I push off my right leg, my hips turn naturally and my legs are touching after the swing. At times I am an impatient golfer and just go up and swing. If I take some practice swings, my shots are usually better. I will force myself to take a practice swing on every shot I take, but as soon as it gets warm in SW Pa.
Glad you are getting it. You MUST do the practice swings. Look for the feedback of the positioning and have it clearly in your mind what you are going to do before you do it. If you don’t do this you are basing it on luck and that is one of the HUGE problems in this game. People think they have it because they see a couple of go shots. If you do something enough you will hit a few good ones but luck will soon run out. If you cannot do hit good shots well over 50% of time you are basing it on luck. So keep doing the practice swings and keep trying to develop a great swing. The more you do, the more great shots you will hit and become a great golfer.

In an earlier video of same, you state that an increase in body turn or rotation from 1.5mph to 2.5mph will result in an increased club head speed. With everything else the same (contact, body swing, etc.), the ball will go farther. Let’s put some numbers to these values. Since the velocity of the club head goes up as the square of the length(from the center of spine to end of the golf club), the increase in speed of the body from 1.5 to 2.5mph, an increase of 1.7 fold, results in a relative club head speed increase of 2.8 fold. So making a small increase in body rotation results in a much larger increase in the speed of the club head which in turn makes the golf ball go further. Bottom Line: Paul is right-turn the body faster to make the ball go farther.

Yes, from such a small difference you really can develop huge clubhead speed. I just shot a tip on this explaining it. I think people will get it after they watch it.
