When you watch long driving pro’s hit the ball like Ernie Els and Fred Couples for example, they swing fast but very smooth. Or in other words they have nice rhythm. Watch there swings to see what I’m talking about:
Fred Couples Swing
Ernie Els Swing
If your golf swing is jerky and un-rhythmic then you’ll be costing yourself distance. So in today’s lesson I’m going to get you to work on your rhythm by doing a couple of simple things.
First, I want you to learn different speeds of your golf swing. To do this here is a practice plan I want you to go through with your driver.
After you’ve completed that then I want you to hit drives at pretty much your maximum swing speed. You should leave a little bit left in the tank however to help avoid injury.
But when you’re doing this I want you to swing back and breathe in as you do so and then when you change directions breathe out so when you finish your swing you’ve exhaled all the way out and got nothing left.
