POWER STRETCH DRILL
To Generate power, stretch (or coil) your body in the backswing and maintain that stretch as you move into the front foot and leg. As you unwind on the downswing, release your hands, arms and club into the ball like a whip just before impact. During the critical transition from backswing to downswing, maintain tension and stretch the left side of the torso as your body moves toward the target and into the front foot and leg. To duplicate this feeling, try my Power Stretch Drill. At address your toeline should be parallel to a wall or doorjamb and your hands should hang loosely (1). Keeping your arms in front of your chest, rotate back and grab the wall with both hands (2). During the downswing, maintain the stretch as you move toward the target (3). Avoid turning your hips or tilting your shoulders (4).
