There two part of increasing the swing speed first is fitness by increasing core as the main factor for power in the stretch of the core on the down swing . You also need good balance and stability . Look Titleist Performance institute website they is a lot of great excercise to increase strength and stability and explain how to create more power .

secondly to have the right sequence on your swing to have peak performance . this is by having your hips and core start the down swing , then shoulder and torso and last arm and hands. you need to have a good path , attack angle , swing direction and face will be around square at impact

Sequencing is key ... to hit the ball far ... and at the same time straight (enough)! Trust me, theres no fun in hitting the ball a mile ... sideways!!!

If you know the correct sequence (from coach or self taught) but are unable to implement it ... chances are there is some fitness constraint holding you back ... figure out where your sequence is off and target those muscles (strength and flexibility).

Food for thought:
Why is it that when you pick up golf as a kid the swing tends to be smoother , more natural ... whereas people who pick up golf later on tend to struggle a bit ...

As a kid your muscles are not fully developed .. and you swing the (heavy) club the only way you possibly can ... in the most efficient and natural manner possible ...

An adult has too many muscles in effect , thus causing confusion, and resulting in many ways too swing the same club .. most of which are incorrect!

Conclusion:
Practice and develop your swing with something that is heavy!!! Worst case scenario ... it'll be a solid workout!!!

change your stance....

open your legs wide wide, stand upright, imagine boss's face on ball and swing like a baseball bat...

works for me...my swing speed increased by at least 10mph doing that...

but whether the club face hit the ball or not is a different matter Wink

Increase lag to create POWER!

Besides muscle, technique is also important ... Relatively shorter guys like Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlory, Charles Howell, etc. can drive as far (or further than) as taller and bigger guys like Vijay Singh, Ernie Else, Phil Mickelson, etc. The video below tells you how to do it ...

U are most welcome bros ...

I am not a season golfer but just in case you might overlook, the right shaft flex, torque and weight are also of paramount importance to gaining the maximum possible distance.

Good luck and enjoy your practice!

Bro, actually it is not that swing harder would create ones maximum possible distance. It is the ability to create lag and release well at the right time are vital. Here is a very useful & excellent tip from the two time World Long Drive champ, Jaime Sadlowski ...
