How I Got Real Power In My Swing

By | on March 9, 2021 | 8 Comments |

In this tip I am talking about how I got power in my golf swing. I tell this during my golf schools and some of you might have heard it before but this is a good story that I am sure that you can relate to also. Everyone wants more power, when I was younger I could never keep up with other golfers, but once I tried this it was no looking back. Try this the next time you have driver in your hand.

    Great points, Paul! I also hit the ball much more solid when I take the arms and hands out of the swing. Thanks!

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for this good tip. I’m left-handed but play right-handed and I haven’t been pushing up with my right foot until now. I’ll try it today.
    By the way 75 years of age is not at all old these days I’m turning 80 and I reckon I’ll be turning Pro within the next 15 years.

  3. Quick question: So you dig in to the ground first during the transition and THEN push off the right foot inset and turn? I tend to get on my toes during the transition, pelvis goes in (early extension) and my right shoulder dips to low, coming drastically inside/out.

    Thank you, your site is incredible!

      I turn my right knee in a little to ensure I move to the inside of my right foot in the backswing. Is this modification acceptable?

        Yes, this is fine. You just do not want to do it too much, or too much resistance as this will make your weight go to the outside of your foot more.

      You are pushing off of your instep/toe area. The digging in is to feel the ground underneath you to get that burst of speed. Start working on getting a better circular rotation with the lower body first. Check out this tip:
