Most amateur golfers struggle to generate the kind of power they’d like and oftentimes that’s a result of not getting their weight moving forward on the downswing.
If you’re among those who tend to hang back as you approach impact, that’s something that needs to be changed in short order.
In this video segment, School of Golf host Martin Hall has a great drill to help you feel what it’s like to get your body moving forward properly in the downswing.
This might feel quite strange at first, especially if you’ve been hanging back, but as Hall suggests, if you do this correctly you’ll see some dramatic improvement in your ball-striking, both in terms of distance and contact.
