WATCH: Curve the Golf Ball for More Power


Want to create more power in your golf swing? Forget straight shots; you need to learn how to curve the ball for much more power!

Ping Pong or table tennis is the ultimate example of this. Imagine a “straight backhand” where you simply push the ball flat to the other side instead of a nice, topspin backhand. The first option would be the equivalent to a checked baseball swing. The second option has way more speed… and less manipulation.

Watch the video for the ultimate clarification as to why straight shots are a tactical mistake and are not conducive to consistent shotmaking.
