‘Use your legs to generate more power’
I’m not a massive guy but one of the reasons I’m able to generate so much power is the way I use my legs when I transition into the downswing. As I’m completing the backswing, I brace against the inside of my right leg. I’m pushing into the ground, and I can feel my right leg resisting the turn of my upper body. That stores a lot of power for the second half of the swing. As I start the downswing, I lead with my legs. I’m trying to get my left knee out the way so the club can whip through the hitting area. But you don’t want to make a big slide to your front side with the left knee moving out toward the ball. I think of it as a small shift toward the target, then the left knee starts turning left. From there, you can let everything go and sling the club through impact.
