Drills To Increase Club head speed – PGA Professional Robin Symes shows a number of drills to increase club head speed.
The drill I’ve just shown you is the main drill for you to be practicing to improve your sequence. You don’t need many drills. You need one good one. Work on it; develop the feeling. But to help you get it and to help you improve your sequence, I’m going to give you a few bonus tips.
Number one would be try to increase your speed, not swing harder. I’m hoping you understand the meaning of that. A common mistake I see people trying to increase their distances swinging harder, and that word for me develops tension. That develops tightness in your muscles. That develops a restriction in your movement. Harder also means, normally from what I see, is people moving their upper body first, using their bigger muscles to create their speed. And that actually is the opposite sequence of what we need. So try to increase your speed, try not to hit it harder. Speed comes from sequence, sequence comes from keeping your muscles soft and relaxed.
Second bonus tip would be don’t stand wider. Very often people trying to hit it harder and increase their speed make a big stance, restricting their leg movement. Again, very difficult to start the swing from the ground up in the correct sequence. Go on YouTube and watch some of the long driving contests. Longer hitters stand quite narrow. They allow their legs to move naturally, not being restricted. I know that’s maybe contrary to some of the advice you’ve had or some of the articles you’ve read about resisting with your lower body, but actually there’s nothing proven to say that you need a tight lower body in a golf swing. Stand narrow; allow your legs to move naturally. You’ll find it much easier to get your legs starting the downswing, helping the sequence.
Just two simple tips to help you improve your sequence. I know keep using that word, but really that’s the key to improving the sequence of your golf swing, because that creates an efficient golf swing. An efficient golf swing creating speed will also let you to retain your accuracy, and that’s what we want. Longer, retaining your accuracy, that’s what’s going to help you score better.
