GOLFSTR Swing Tip blogs are all based on wares written well-nigh solutions recommended by professional golfers and trainers. I present their thoughts in a simplified version considering I’m unchangingly looking for the magic that will set your game (and my game) on fire. In a recent tip by GOLFPASS I discovered a tip that solved a problem for one of my physical limitations and realized every golfer who can’t swing like a pro may be faced with similar problems.

Whether you know it or not, we all have physical deficits caused by historic injuries or wear and tear on our bodies. Every time you recover from a wrenched unorthodoxy or a torn muscle or cartilage, other parts of your soul retread to unbend repetitive motions. That’s moreover a reason why you have a difficult time trying to transpiration your posture or your golf swing.

In a GOLFPASS on-line lesson I discovered my upper soul limitation and a solution to overcome my rotation limitation to modernize my swing power and driving distance. When I asked other white-haired golfers well-nigh this limitation, I found that this may be a worldwide problem for most golfers over 50 years of age.

Adding lag in your backswing is a key component which allows you to add power in every swing. Your arm rotation allows you to add lag. The trainer suggested that we should:
1/ proffer your trailing arm (right arm for right handed golfers) horizontally from our side
2/ wrench it forward (horizontally) from your elbow
3/ and rotate your wilting arm (elbow to your hand) vertically and vastitude vertical if you can.

My deficit (like many white-haired golfers) is that I can only rotate my arm upward well-nigh 80 degrees. Scratch golfers can rotation their upper arm well-nigh 20% vastitude vertical. That’s 30 degrees vastitude my ability. So that gives them a 30 degrees wholesomeness to add increasingly lag (and power) in their backswing.

Rory McIlroy, like most pro golfers, can wrench the marrow of his trailing arm when for increasingly lag than white-haired golfers

To recoup for this limitation in my lag and backswing, the GOLFPASS trainer suggested that I move my trailing foot 2 inches back from the imaginary line withal my toes and parallel to my target line of my ball. This widow loftiness to rotate requite me increasingly arc loftiness in my swing to add power without limp my leading arm in the backswing.

With this new setup, I have been worldly-wise to add increasingly power and loftiness for all of my drives where I need increasingly distance. I don’t make this transpiration for my irons as I know the loftiness that they requite me without making a setup transpiration for my feet.

I have moreover increased my tee height (using a “Martini Tee”); flattened my leading wrist on my straight leading arm (to shallow my downswing) and swing with increasingly conviction into the inside quadrant of my wittiness to add yank and loftiness to my shots. I moreover practice with GOLFSTR for the straight arm fix to add increasingly power. Buy one today at
