I am going to do a two part video on how to hit the golf ball farther.
Part 1 will be all the “hit it farther” cliches and misconceptions and why they are wrong or misinterpreted.
Part 2 will be how each individual can hit the ball farther by doing nothing to slow the arms down (THE KEY FACTOR in hitting it farther and that’s universal). Linking up hip turn, shoulder turn, arm lift and rotation and wrist hinge. Proper transition and tilt and how all of these things make room so the arms don’t slow down.
What I am looking for today is all of the cliches I can tear apart.
Hold the lag
Restrict hip turn
Widen the arc
Inside out to hit draw because that goes farther than a fade
Hold lag plus inside out
Wide to narrow (float load)
Low and slow
Backswing to parallel (Full turn)
Pull butt into wall in front of you
Keep head still or head down
Give me more I haven’t thought of or new ones I can make fun of.
BTW, you read that correctly. The key factor in hitting the ball farther is do nothing to force the arms to slow.
