Faster Not Harder!

Harder brings on thoughts of tension, so how does one swing faster?

This is an interesting question, I don’t believe there are any ‘tips’ to swing it faster, I think that needs to take place with specific training. BUT I do think that there are steps that can be taken to keep you loose and free swinging.

The last thing you need to deal with is tension. Tension will suck out all possible ways to swing the club faster. Tension can start in the feet. In the hands. At the beginning of the takeaway. A lot of the time it starts in the space between your ears. Here are some simple ways to keep you tension free.

    It is impossible to ad any significant clubhead speed with the hands. This article here explains why:
    The reason clubhead speed increases when the wrist uncock is delayed is that it stores up additional centrifugal force that is released at once during impact. It is like cracking a whip. The legs, hips, and torso motions are where the centrifugal force is generated. The hands save it and then release it. All your hands should do is keep the clubface square so all that force sends the ball straight where you want it to go.

    At age 85 ,I fight to keep up distance .I concurr with what is said in the video and the above comment :keep your wrists completely loose .The speed being created by centrifugal force ,build it up smoothily by starting with a big left shoulder turn ,left shoulder comes beneath the chin ,then bring back this left shoulder to it’s initiai position SMOOTHILY while pushing off left instep .

    One thing I notice on the video for Swing faster not Harder……qtc hands are Not at his front/right thigh as he had said to do in a previous Rx video. What’s up QTC?

      Hey Pete, I get what you’re saying. In this video you’ll see that my ‘trigger’ is to move my hands forward towards my thigh right before I take the club away. I don’t usually start with my hands there but I move them there before my takeaway.

      That being said, when I’m filming, I don’t always adhere to my own advice. GOOD CATCH!
