LET THE ARMS LEAD

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best The Long Ball -

When my driv­ing is off, it’s usu­ally be­cause my lower body has un­wound much faster than my up­per body. When that hap­pens, I have to use my hands to try to save the shot, which costs dis­tance and ac­cu­racy. How you start down is cru­cial. While keep­ing your feet an­chored to the ground, let your arms and club start to drop be­fore un­wind­ing. This helps sling the club faster through the im­pact zone. You’ll start hit­ting it fur­ther with­out any ex­tra ef­fort. Re­mem­ber, you’re not try­ing to at­tack the ball. You’re try­ing to launch it.
