Watch Jason Day strike the ball. Watch his swing. Or how about "old man" Davis Love III? Or Bubba Watson? Or "late bloomer" Jeff Maggert. All of them (let me repeat: ALL OF THEM) let their whole bodies do the talking. They hit the ball "from the ground up." Their lower body is where the power comes from. They give it time to come into play.
Many amateur golfers are crazy fast when swinging a golf club. This leads to no control and, more importantly, very little power.
Check out my video and see what to do and how to get the power, distance and accuracy you want with every shot. Rule #1: SLOW DOWN.
Enjoy the game again,
