How to Generate Power in the Golf Swing

Power Charge the Golf Swing

One way to generate power in the golf swing is by generating momentum. A good example here is a baseball pitcher, to throw a ball with power he winds back before he releases.

The same principles apply in the golf swing.

You need to turn around your right side in the backswing with no sway.

One of the common misconceptions of amateurs is that they have to swing really hard and fast to create a lot of power, this results in an off plane and off balance golf swing. Resulting in a lack of power and distance.

The only way to create power is to build up momentum in your swing with a good body turn.
