Boost your Golf Drives to Lower Scores
Every golfer would like to have a golf training tip to increase their
drives by 10, 20, 30 or even 40 yards. But what do you need to focus on to
Have you ever received a golf training tip that didn.t work? I think we
all have. That can be very frustrating to say the least. But the key to
implementing a golf training tip that.s effective is to look at your
Do you lack a full, 90 degree shoulder turn on your backswing? Do you
breakdown at impact where it really counts? Or do you have a hard time
staying in your golf posture through out your swing?
You.ve got to take a deeper look at your swing faults AND physical
limitations to determine what golf training tip will be the most effective
in improving your driving distance.
Don't just try any golf training tip your golfing buddies tell you. Give
it some serious thought before you do one of the golf training tips in the
magazines. There are hundreds golf training tips you can read about, but
won.t work for you.
Have you ever heard of the .62 point check-list?.
If you haven.t, it means instead of having one golf training tip you think
about during your swing, you think of 62 of them. Maybe not that many, but
you think of enough to accomplish what they term .paralysis by analysis..
When this happens, your swing will go south real quick. This happened to
the Number One ranked golfer in the world back in the 90.s. His name? Nick
Faldo. He became so mechanically he couldn.t even hit a ball. He would
enter a tournament and take so many practice swings, and not have one golf
training tip on his mind, but many.
It took him right out of the world rankings and ultimately off the tour.
He is now commentating and doing a great job.
Here.s a golf training tip that will help your backswing range of motion,
enabling you to have a much higher clubhead speed and quickly improve your
I call it the Backswing Shoulder Stretch:
- Extend left arm out in front of you (if you are a right handed
in a handshake position, thumb pointing skyward.
- Take right hand and put under left wrist, so the back of the hands
touching each other.
- Pull with right hand against left wrist and make as big a turn on back
swing as possible.
- Hold for at least 15 seconds, repeat two more times.
- Reverse the stretch to work the follow through.
As you can see this is a simple golf training tip, but one that is very
effective if you do it consistently. This is a great stretch to do
throughout your round to maintain a full backswing.
This is just one golf training tip that can have a big impact on your
performance; and is well worth trying.
