Golf Swing Tips: Let the Arms Drive your Swing

Padraig Harrington breaks down his technique for getting the most power out of your swing.


How to Swing a Golf Club for More Power and Distance

Everyone wants to hit the ball farther.

In order to get distance out of your swing, the key is to let your arms, wrists, and hands drive your swing motion, not your hips and torso. By keeping your arms loose and letting your hands and wrists dictate your body’s motion and direction, you will get a better strike and more power from your swing.

PGA Tour player and Wilson Advisory Staff Member, Padraig Harrington, shows us a simple drill and technique to work on letting those arms take control of your swing for more power and further distance.
