Quick Golf Tips - Generate More Power With Knee Coil
A lack of distance puts pressure on your game. So while it's better to be short in the fairway than long in the rough, it's okay to try swing techniques that help generate more power. But be careful which techniques you try. Some diminish your ability to strike the ball well. Using your back knee correctly isn't one of these techniques. It generates more power by improving your ballstriking, adding distance to your shots.
Below are five keys to using your back knee correctly:
* Tilt your spine at the hips and flex your knees
* Position your back shoulder slightly lower
* Keep the flex in your back knee constant as you coil
* Make a full coil and shift your weight back
* Make a longer forward swing than backswing
A key to generating more power is to think of your right knee as a coil that's wound in the backswing and unwound in the forward swing. Below are the keys:
* At address, tilt your spine at the hips and position your front shoulder slightly lower than your back shoulder. Hang your arms down vertically and flex your knees to ensure balance and stability.
* As you start back, make a full coil and shift your weight back. That positions your swing center behind the ball at the top, increasing accuracy. Shift your weight forward as you unwind, returning your swing center to a point directly above the ball at impact.
* Try to maintain your initial setup posture from the start of your swing to the finish. Maintaining your posture and the angle of your back knee adds power to your swing.
* Using a shorter backswing with a longer forward swing also adds distance to your shots, thanks to the power stored in your backswing coil.
Use your back knee correctly and you'll add more power to your swing without losing accuracy or efficiency. That in turn will take some pressure off your game.
