Are you looking for a good exercise to do at home or in the gym to increase your distance off the tee?
This month, we have a simple exercise that can be done anywhere you can find a wall. By doing this exercise every day it will help increase your flexibility and give you the correct feeling of loading up behind the ball with more width in your backswing. It will also help anyone that is prone to reverse pivoting by training you to maintain your body shape so you can build up some pressure on the inside of your right leg.
Watch the video below which shows the correct backswing turn first, followed by the wrong way (reverse tilt). Take notice of how the body angles are maintained in the first move and how the hands are in a much wider position. If you can make the same move with the driver in your hands you’ll be in a much better position to create power and speed through the ball.
If you need any help with your game, please reach out to our GolfPro, Brad, to arrange a private lesson.
