Pump Drill for More Power

In order to create power on your downswing, you need to ‘get behind the ball’ at the top of your swing. This involves rotating your shoulders and hips away from the target, so the majority of your weight shifts to the back foot at the top of the swing. Once you have wound your body up behind the ball, then you can rotate your lower body towards the target and fling your arms to hit the ball.

Where a lot of people go wrong, especially on the downswing, is they never quite get their core rotating towards the target.  They either come over the top with upper body or hang back and use only hands and arms to hit the ball.  To get more power, you’ll want to use your core muscles.

Check out this simple exercise that appears on Golf Channel Academy to engage your core on the downswing.

One way to get a more automatic swing is to do drills and exercises without hitting shots. When you repeat drills, you ingrain the feelings and you improve faster.  When you do drills, making several repetitions, your muscles start to get feel and you don’t have to think so much.

Smooth Out Your Downswing to Cure Your Slice

When you practice you want to make sure that 1) you are practicing the right moves and 2) that you are grooving a consistent swing that you can take to the golf course.

You want your swing to become automatic, like spelling your name.  When was the last time you misspelled your name?  You probably can’t remember because it is automatic, you do it without thought.  Why can’t swinging a golf club be the same way?  Why can’t we make a smooth swing without any thought every single time?

Well, that is because this game is really hard, even pros don’t make a perfect swing every single time. But they are consistent and that is because they have practiced enough that it has become automatic.

One way to get a more automatic swing is to do drills and exercises.  When you repeat drills, you ingrain the feelings and you improve faster.  When you do drills, making several repetitions, your muscles start to get feel and you don’t have to think so much.

Here is a drill to help your downswing.
