Add power, accuracy to your golf game in a few short steps

Chuck EvansBy Chuck Evans,

The two major priorities of most golfers are more power and accuracy.

For optimal learning, these priorities must be addressed both academically and physically. Knowledge should be conveyed to the student through lecture, scientific demonstration, swing-training aids and video analysis. When done properly, players will come to fully understand their swings.


There are four separate sources of power in the golf swing, definable and distinguishable:

1. Proper uncocking of the left wrist.
2. Blasting of the left arm off the chest with the body pivot.
3. Synchronized roll of the left wrist through impact.
4. The driving power of the right forearm.

When the player learns the proper utilization, application and synchronization of these power sources, he or she will solve the mysteries of power!


Two factors that determine the accuracy of all golf shots:
1. Control of the flat left wrist through impact, for clubface alignment.
2. Consistent orbit of the clubhead on the proper plane.

The player must learn to swing the clubhead, shaft and hands up and back then down and out on the same inclined plane time after time. He or she must also learn to control the clubface with the flat left wrist, thereby adding to the precision of all shots.

            Are there any drills that will help a person hit the ball first and then take a divit?

                If you want to learn how to hit a divot you must know how to properly shift your weight from back leg to the front leg. As well your plane that the club goes affects this. If you get a wide downswing there will be not much of going down, intead try to make it a bit narrower and you will realise that you start hitting the ground after the ball. And by shifting your weight you prevent duffs
