Watch And Study Senior Golf Pros To Help Hit Longer Drives (Video)

Okay. So the question is can we learn by watching the senior top players? Can we learn by watching them and take something from them to make us hit better drives? Well the answer is yes. We’re going to do first of all is let’s look a senior golfer I’ll give her as an example to of Tom Watson. Tom Watson is actually more less my sort of height. So when you’re looking at a comparison is very important that you look at people that are similar sort of age, build, height just don’t go looking at somebody who’s six foot six and you’re five foot four completely different swings. So if I looked at Tom Watson and he’s my sort of build what can I learn from Tom Watson? Well in my eyes Tom Watson is one of the greatest players around he’s my hero. He sets up to the golf ball he’s not changing his swing really in all the years he’s been playing none at ball. What he does very successfully he sets himself up and as he swings the club back he actually to get a better shoulder turn and better hip turn, he actually just lifts his left heel.

As he lifts his left heel you can see I can actually turn my body, now obviously if you were 18 years of age we wouldn’t be taking about this because you wouldn’t need to do that. You got the suppleness but we’re senior golfers so we cant stand there and just go and turn ourselves through 90 degrees we haven’t got that flexibility. Mostly we don’t want any injuries so from here Tom Watson will be a great example for me ton learn from to get some extra benefit into my game in this case a bit more distance in my shot. So what her does he takes the club back he lifts his left heel which allows his hips and his body to turn more. The most important thing from here as hew starts to come down, he then drops the left heel back down which then brings the hips forward and the weight forward. So what you’ve done here as he bring that hip back down he can then puts the body back into the original places her started as you come to hit the ball. And then from there the weight transfers finishes off so next time you watch Tom Watson just look at this action he lifts his left heel and as he comes back down he’s left heel almost kind of stamps the floor, brings the club back down and then from that it goes through. The most important factor here is that having lifted your left heel it’s very, very important the left foot drops back to where it started. So don’t go back and then move your foot into a different positions, as you lift that left foot, so I’m going t demonstrate with a golf shot. Because I think it’s better to be seen, so from here I’m just going to move this left foot as I go back heel and I drop my left foot back down. You can see how my hips have come through, my weight has come through the ball and it’s very, very simple it gives us the senior golfer more distance with less effort just by lifting that lifting that left heel slightly. It allows everything to turn the weight transfers is far; far better and we can get more out of the golf shot with less effort. Next time you have a look, look at the senior golfers, you find someone who is similar build and age to yourself, and maybe just think I’m going to take a little bit of that golfer to the driving range to see if to see if it works for me. For me Tom Watson, it works.
