Tapping Into Natural Swing Speed

Tapping Into Natural Swing Speed


Nearly all golf instructors promise to teach their players how to increase the speed of their golf swing.

Sometimes these promises come in the form of a secret trick, other times it may come about through unproven training regimes, at the risk of injury or insanity on the part of the player.

While many claim that some players are simply born faster than others, truthfully speaking most amateur golfers can train and practice proven swing strategies to add between 5 and 20 mph to their existing speed.

As taught through the GG Swing Method, George Gankas golf philosophy focuses on strengthening the existing talents in a player, while taking corrective action on the movements in their golf swing that continue to hold them back each time they pick up a club.

Players from around the world credit George Gankas golf videos with the drastic improvements that they’ve experienced in their game, making the GG Swing Method one of the most user recommended online golf academies in existence.

Oddly enough, some instructors teach their students that swinging the club at increased speeds will ruin their existing golf swing and cause physical problems to their body.

It has been measured and proven that even modest increases in swing speed can nearly double the distances achieved by the same player, making our this one of the most important controllable attributes that a golfer could ever want to focus on.

Most times when an amateur tries to achieve more distance on their existing shots, they begin to swing the club harder rather than faster.

While swinging your golf club harder will increase the tension in your body, an increase in swing speed will promote a natural motion in your golf swing, which will ultimately add deeper distance to your average shot.

Falling short on a shot, especially when driving the ball, will cause deep frustration and aggravation in any player.

Ensuring that you’re balancing your golf swing at address will put your body in the correct posture to rotate your body naturally, without overstraining any of the muscle groups that are essential to golfing.

Maintaining balance posture at setup will position you to keep your clubhead pointed downward on the target line, with your entire stance poised for power.

While working through your golf swing, keeping your upper body muscles in sync with how your torso maneuvers opposite of the golf ball provides the needed natural motion to build speed.

Many golfers have found value in postponing the hinge in their wrists slightly during their backswing.

This minor yet effective adjustment allows the golfer to get positioned for their downswing transition, rather than prolonging the motion and ending up losing power in the process.

More times than not, golfers are overexerting their upper body muscle groups in the hopes of adding more speed to their swings.

Rather than allowing your swing speed to generate over the needed period of time, players rush through the motions and end up experiencing a drastic drop in momentum, leading to missed shots and headaches.

Releasing your clubhead in natural motion should be a smooth process, rather than a forced action with excessive force being applied at the last minute.

Balancing the many pressures applied by your muscles at this moment will allow for a natural balance in your swing, which promotes the generation of speed over force, adding several yards to your shots when done correctly.

Practice makes perfect in this case, but once a player has naturally added speed to their swing, distance and excitement are soon sure to follow each time they pick up their club.
