Turn and Lift


You are looking for more powerful drives.


If you are interested in modifying your swing style, you could improve your driving distance by creating an earlier torso turn.


Try watching videos on how Fred Couples swings. He turns his torso early during the backswing, lifts his arms up and around as he completes his shoulder swing. He stretches his leading side extremely far to create a strong coil. Try this swing style out while hitting a bucket of balls and see if it works for you. Just remember that the early chest turn is key in this swing.
