Jhonattan Vegas Pro Golfer Swing Sequence with Phenomenal Arm Extension, (Video)
Jhonattan Vegas Pro Golfer Swing Sequence with Phenomenal Arm Extension, (Video)

There’s not many players that make such a sparkling start to that PGA Tour career as Jhonattan Vegas. He went out there a couple of years ago, won his second event in his rookie season. And really that maybe summarizes the way he plays the game, a kind of swash buckling grip it and rip it style of playing, it’s certainly evident in his swing. So rather than turning up on his first couple events and trying to play his way in and feeling his way around and getting nervous, he just pegged it upon the first tee, so the fairway, ripped it down there, and ended up winning the tournament.

And that’s very much the way he swings the club, stands in a nice tall addressed position, very big hit, a massive backswing, huge drive into the downswing, and a fantastic extension down the target line. The one thing I’ve really noticed about his golf swing, that I’d like you to try and copy or encourage you to bring into your own game, is the extension through the ball.

For Vegas to hit the ball as hard as he does, and keep the ball accurately in play, he must deliver the golf club down the target line and hold it on the target line for as long as possible. And this is one of the signature moves from a lot of good players that we see playing the game, really nicely and as opposed to a lot of the amateurs and club golfers, that don’t necessarily get the club in the right position here, but too much chicken-wing and pulled-in position so Vegas is a great exponent of the extension down the target line to produce really straight shots.

Nice way of checking that you’re doing this correctly, well to encourage you to do it correctly even, would be to take an extra ball here or a tee peg or any marker, and place it about two-foot two-and-a-half foot in front of your golf ball, and then try and get your golf club to pass over that. Almost imagine that that is a very strong magnet, and that magnet is pulling your golf club down towards it to extend you out. Your hands and arms extend down to the target you throw the club forward as much as you can. And if you can work on that principle, that can be a very valuable aid in your practice session.

So like Vegas we set up to the ball nicely, return on the big magnet. That’s going to try and pull my club forwards, I’m going to extend and reach down, right over that ball and extends as far forward as I can, with my hands and my arms, and that will give you much more accuracy, and a good deal of power relieving your club straight down the target line, just like Jhonattan Vegas.
