Proper Golf Followthrough
By Bobby Eldridge
How many times have you stood in the middle of the fifth fairway at your local golf course and you always hit 9 iron from that little bush?
Or you always hit 7 wood from that little tiny tree on the side of the fairway, but today there's just a little breeze in your face, or maybe the pin is in the back of the green? And you really don't want to hit 8 iron and you really don't want to hit 5 wood, but you'd like to hit the club you're trying to hit a little bit further?
I want to give you a little tip, or a little pearl on how to hit it further by increasing your golf swing tempo, but I don't want you to get hung up on the fact that it's just for the driver. This can be for any club.
The next time you're out, try this. Take a couple of practice swings. Warm up before you hit the ball, and then raise the club up in the air like you would a baseball bat.
If you can swing it in the air and increase your golf swing tempo, that's 20% harder than I usually swing a golf club. Then put it down on the ground and do the same thing twice. Step up to the ball and give it a whack.
Now, if the truth were known and we went out and measured that 9 iron, I guarantee you that 9 iron went 10% further than my average 9 iron.
So, here it is. Make sure that just before you get ready to hit that you raise it in the air and increase your golf swing tempo a little bit faster than you normally would. Then put it on the ground and give it some swish. And then put it up to the ball and give it a whack.
Don't forget, the further you hit it the more offline you might be.
So, if you're looking to hit it a little bit further, try that practice session.
Thanks, and have a great day.
