Tips from The Golf Channel Amateur Tour

Another great tip from The Golf Channel Amateur Tour. I totally agree with Sam and this is something I am personally working on. I hope this helps!!! (Photo courtesy of

Keeping your upper body behind the ball on your downswing is a must if your clubhead
is to reach maximum velocity through the impact area. If you let your shoulders slide toward the target, you destroy the centrifugal force that builds up this clubhead speed. Think of keeping your head behind your right hip until the clubhead is well past the ball. This will encourage the proper sliding-turning action of the knees and hips and will discourage you from trying to hit the ball with the arms only.
