Andrew Jowett gives sound advice for more power and accuracy
Many golfers attempt to gain more power by driving at the ball through impact.
This creates lateral sway and often a weak lower half action that delivers the illusion of a committed, strong movement. By maintaining a firmer left side and turning rather than sliding through the shot, both power and accuracy can be improved.
Feeling the left hip working back and high through impact and not sliding at the target allows the right side to rotate through to a full finish, delivering more consistent, accurate and powerful results.
• Loss of power
The left hip and leg drive towards the target creating a soft lower half that forces a loss of height, which produces inconsistent contact. This weak left side also reduces the dynamic rotation of a stronger swing, thus resulting in a lack of both punch and power.
• A better strike
A more stable left side, as the left hip works back and high through impact, allows your right side to commit to a more solid turn through the ball. The consistent angle of attack allowed by the firmer left side enables regular ball-turf contact and a superior strike.
