Hi, it's Jim Empey for LIVESTRONG.com. I'm the teaching pro here at Quail Hollow Golf Club today in Boise, Idaho and like most teaching pros I get asked a lot of questions about how to hit the ball farther. To hit the ball farther we've got to get the club to generate more speed. Speed and solidness of contact equate to increased distance and therefore the more we can hit the ball in the center of the face the more we can use the technique of the swing to generate energy and speed the farther we can hit the ball. More specifically I want you to do a couple of key things to generate speed. One is that once you've established your, your golf posture tilting forward from the hip joints with a modest amount of knee flex I want you to practice turning within that basic posture so that your body and specifically your hip joints and back get used to turning and unwinding in that sort of dynamic way. The more efficiently you can do that the more you can do that with speed. The more that's gonna influence the pace of the club in the forward swing. Secondly, I want you to lower the tension level in your arms and shoulders. In fact I'd love to see you lower the tension level in your body in general. The looser you can be the more you can swing in an elastic way. The better chance you have for your muscles to stretch and fire in the most effective way. Loose muscles move faster and fire more dynamically then tense muscles. Just like someone that throws a ball the looser the right arm is the more elasticity there, there is in that motion and the more kinetic energy is generated in the release of the ball. That's very much like what we're doing in our golf swing in the sense that when we swing forward we want to use our body to unwind forward allowing the club to release at the bottom in a loose dynamic way. The speed is multiplied through impact and the ball takes off and really flies. Good luck with that.
