Hi Yuki, It's got to do with core muscles, strong stomach and lower back. Ladies do seem to have some problem with that according to a friend of mine who coaches ladies a lot. Pilates and yoga helps to strengthen the core a lot, so you can try that. Then there are some drills to teach you how to feel the separation of the lower body from the upper body to create the torque for more distance. That separation is to stretch the muscle running down the left side of your back connected to your shoulder blade and hip on the backswing, to cause a rubber band effect on the downswing. I've tried to explain it as simply as I can, hope it helps.
Sibeh cheem leh...what separation of the lower body from the upper body to create the torque??? albino
I dun feel this stretch during my swing, maybe that's why my distances are short? I tried to do what this "rubber band" thing before but after trying I am afraid that the separation of lower and upper body would become a permanent feature and so have decided against it. Crying or Very sad

Birdman is not off according to a book which i have read recently...

the book is titled "The Scientific Truth of the Golf Swing". the author Steen Winther has an interesting analogy. i will try to condense..

the only moving parts of a propeller airplane is the plane and the propeller. we know that the propeller has a great amount of rotational energy and this energy propels the plane. however the propeller while its moving is not the source of engine.

the source of energy is from the engine and is transmitted via the drive shaft through the propeller and to the air.

From a scientific point of view, the author likens this is exactly what takes place in the golf swing.

the arm do not generate power, the shoulder do not generate power, the hip do not generate power. But together they help to transmit power from the lower body...the limbs, just like the engine in the propeller engine.

Accordingly to the author, the true functions of the arms is to be in a position to transmit energy to the club and onto the ball, and the required arm tension is a function of the quality of the swing geometry. Simply said, if someone needs to "work the club a lot" with the hands and arms, its a case of poor swing geometry.

there is a lot more...but it's evident that Birdman is not far from the Truth.

Chim enough?

go to amazon and buy the book....

no need to see video, i am convinced the author is quite right.

you want to learn the drills, ask Jhan...he has taught me some and its top notch.

later i use impact stik to demonstrate and will be accused of "aggressive persuasion".
