PGA Tour players have an average of 44 degrees of rotation towards the target in the pelvis at impact. This is not the exception, more often than not the players perform this specific movement. But does that mean this “secret” to longer drives is reserved for the elite athletes and professionals? Nope.

With some tweaks, understanding and some exercises to improve your hip and pelvic movement, you too can increase the degree your hips are open at impact and in turn increase the average distance you hit the ball. Most PGA pros open the lower body about 40 degrees at impact, however the average amateur / weekend warrior will only open their hips 5-8 degrees at impact, just one of the reasons they hit it further and more consistently than many of you.

Hip rotation at impact is a key to repeatable power in your golf swing and a principle to increase your distance, effortlessly and consistently.

So what can you do to improve your hip action and pelvic movement to be more open at impact ind hopefully generate a solid powerful blow to the ball?

Here are a couple of exercises you can try to improve your hip rotation at impact for more power;

– Forward shift neutral pelvic

From a golf posture, place hands across chest and then tilt your pelvis back and forward to find the neutral spot (if yo are unsure how to do this take a look at this video here.

Then you want to complete your swing into the follow through, but not with a backswing, just rotate the torso and hips to a full finish, but the key here is to maintain the neutral pelvic position

– Judo chops with a resistance band

Just place a resistance band waist high and separate the hands and hold with both, the band in front. Nor proceed to rotate the hips like you are throwing someone and your torso will follow in the right sequence.

Here is a video demonstrating a more explosive version if you want to try it, but word of advice is to build up your tempo with this and focus on generating the initiation of the through swing with the hip rotation.
