Who Wants More Power With This Easy Drill

In this tip I talk about an easy drill that you should be doing all the time. I see so many amateur golfers that have a chicken wing and very tight with their arms. With this drill, you will be getting a wider swing arc. A wider arc means more distance.

    This tip really appeals to me and may be just what I need right now ! So looking forward to taking on the 1 bucket challenge with this tip in mind. Great timing Paul and many thanks…here’s hoping.

    Hi Paul,did my bucket challenge today with this tip in mind. Together with a slightly looser swing and more backswing( my big flaw) the results were incredible! Hitting balls further and even straighter than ever. My only ask now that I can hit similar shots whilst on the course… thank you so much.

    I tried your drill with a large bucket of balls. The 3-5 practice swings before hitting the ball helped me to relax and hit some really good shots. I now know what a good body swing feels like.

    The next day i tried taking this feeling to the course with mixed results. I hit some good shots but the pressure of real play made me tighten up and made it harder to execute this tip correctly.

    • When you go out to play, I would try to play a couple holes maybe late in the evening when there are less golfers around and just try to go slow. Do not take a scorecard just focus on slowing down and actually doing the move when on the golf course. This will be the toughest part of learning a new golf swing.

    Better players have been telling me for years that my biggest problem is that I’m getting in my own way, or the golf swing is between your ears. On the range I swing like I’m a low handicap, but we all know what happens when I get out on the course. I actually started applying this tip over a year ago on the range but only a couple of times on the course before I had to stop playing due to a hip that needs replacing. I KNOW this is going to work better and better down the road. It gets rid of all the swing BS between your ears that ruins a golf shot. My only recommendation is to make sure that your alignment is correct. The whole point of this technique is to have this fluid swing feeling ingrained and then step up and hit your shot quickly. I found myself not being aligned properly because I was in a hurry to NOT lose that feeling. I know that I’ll be able to incorporate better alignment into this with time. I am very optimistic about this. For me, someone who is very mechanical, this allows me to get rid of all that clutter and play much better golf. I’ve tried it all over the course of 35 years of playing and I truly believe in this. I will give this some time. This is my last attempt to play golf at a level where I enjoy myself before I give it up. Thanks for everything Paul. I’ve been a loyal follower of yours for quite a few years now. I understand your mechanics very well and I hope that this is the last piece to the puzzle of playing more consistent golf. Bye for now!

    This drill was immediately helpful!.
    I just went to the range yesterday for only the second time in the last 4 months,
    and this drill helped me send off drives consistently better than any ones I had all of last year

    This drill and swing thought has tremendously improved my ball striking. Drives are going farther and straighter! I have been a subscriber for many years and this has helped more than any tip. Usually shoot around 90 but now I’m getting in the low 80’s. Thank you Paul!!
