One valuable tip for ladies looking to generate more power in their drives is to focus on holding the angle between the club shaft and the lead arm for as long as possible during the downswing. Here's how to implement this tip:

  1. Set up with proper alignment and posture: Begin by positioning yourself with proper alignment and a balanced stance. Align your feet, hips, and shoulders parallel to the target line, and maintain a slight knee flex and athletic posture.
  2. Create a good backswing: During the backswing, focus on a smooth and controlled takeaway, allowing your body to rotate and your arms to swing naturally. Maintain a slight wrist hinge as you swing the club back, ensuring the club is on a good plane and your body is turning behind the ball.
  3. Transition and start the downswing: As you transition from the backswing to the downswing, initiate the movement by transferring your weight onto your front foot and beginning the rotation of your hips towards the target. This transition should be initiated smoothly and initiate a sequence of movements that follows a proper kinetic chain.
  4. Hold the angle: Here comes the crucial part. As you start the downswing and transition your weight onto the front foot, focus on maintaining the wrist hinge and the angle between the club shaft and your lead arm. This angle is known as the “lag” or “angle of attack.” By retaining this angle for as long as possible, you are storing and preserving energy that will be released at impact, resulting in a more powerful strike.
  5. Release and extend through impact: As you approach impact, the stored energy from maintaining the lag will naturally release. Allow your wrists to unhinge, but try to do it naturally and not forcefully. Extend your arms fully through impact, ensuring that your lead arm is in line with the club shaft at the moment of contact with the ball.
  6. Follow through with balance and control: After impact, continue the swing with a full and balanced follow-through. Allow your body to rotate and your arms to extend towards the target. Maintain balance and stability throughout the finish position.

Remember, it may take practice and repetition to develop the feel and timing required to hold the angle for powerful drives. Focus on gradually integrating this tip into your swing, and be patient with your progress. Working with a golf instructor can also be beneficial in refining your technique and providing personalized guidance.
