If you want more distance and power from your golf swing understanding this simple concept is absolutely crucial. This concept is explained in many different ways and thanks to countless bad explanations it all to often confuses golfers, actually hurting their golf swing.
That’s why I got world renowned golf instructor Darrell Klassen on camera to clear the air on this topic. The explanation given above by Darrell Klassen is one of the simplest and most straight forward golf lessons I’ve ever heard so listen up!
The main point of this lesson is that while many instructors and TV golf personalities have the right idea in mind they are simply explaining it wrong. For maximum distance and power you DO want to explode maximum power into the golf ball at impact. However, in order to accomplish this you must actually focus your energy on a point beyond the golf ball – a simple tweak that makes all the difference.
Why? The answer is simple. If you focus on achieving maximum club head speed right before you reach the ball you will naturally stop accelerating through impact (your brain says “I just hit the ball, we slow down now”). The problem is for maximum power and distance you must still be accelerating at impact.
The easiest and most effective way to ensure that you accelerate through the ball for maximum energy transfer is to focus on a point about a foot beyond the golf ball. What is the result? Nothing major just longer more consistent drives.
This simple trick is 100% mental. You are still swinging on the same path, doing essentially the same thing. You are only changing your mental focus so that you accelerate for a split second longer, a split second that will be a huge boost for you golf swing.
