Golf swing speed and more power in your golf swing with this feel and get a simple golf swing series for more power consistency and lower scores.

In this golf lesson, Alex Fortey from The Art of Simple Golf shares a simple golf swing instruction tip to get more golf swing speed and golf power. All you need do is pull up through impact.

The feel is to have the butt end of the golf club extend past your hip and feel like velocity is pulling the grip end of the club up.

Increase swing speed to determine the part of your swing that needs improvement hit three balls in succession off a practice tee. Focus on speeding up your body during the downswing of your first attempt. Try to move your arms faster on your second try and then speed up your hands on the third swing.

Backswing while it is the usually the slowest part of your swing, the backswing is integral to making a good shot in that it sets up everything that follows in the downswing.

The strikes of the ball and the follow-through if you are out of alignment or off the plane during your backswing, you are unlikely to make a shot and will certainly struggle throughout your round.

We come through the ball we're feeling like we're pulling the handle back up it doesn't mean we're pulling it in like we're doing this it means that with the body getting the heart up to the sky.

Use the lower body and natural sequence to make it happen. Instincts, when you focus and release to the target, is crucial to enable this to occur. To have a good golf swing you need.

Hi Alex, I just discovered this move the other day, I was watching a Dustin Johnson video and it clearly shows that he's clearing, rotating, the lead shoulder up and back as fast as he can. This creates room for the arms. Had to look at some other guys too, like Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia… They all do the same move. I've tried it and it almost makes you jump, also creates great speed with very little effort. Also takes the stress from your back.
We all need to find our own metafors to make the swing "click", this was clearly mine 🙂
B.t.w. Great videos!!

I've been fooling around with that concept for a month now with great results! I've came across a great video on Youtube explaining the towel snaps (Science Behind Wet Towel Snaps | MythBusters) and you can clearly see the transfer of energy when he pulls back on the towel end. I've started by pulling with my arms (bendings) like you demonstrated and after trying different body sequences I've notice that using my body to pull my arms, hands and handle up: left hip turning back with the rounding up of my upper back (I don't know if that make sense.. sorry I'm from Quebec so very " la french " 😉 ) I was pulling on the handle with a lot of energy transfered to the head of my driver.. My swing speed has increase 10 to 15 miles per hour doing so..

I can clearly see with your demonstration the same use of your body ( so easy now to turn ) and the kind of feeling that I am experiencing through the shot (my driver head is getting heavier as I'm pulling back and up). Happy to came across a rare video taking about that subject in the downswing.. Many thanks for sharing your knowledge..

Shoulder tilt or sidebend seems to be a key for pros. Does this help with the circle/grip up and in move?

The red and green impact lines were a nice holiday touch. Best to you Alex and thanks for all the great tips. Fortissimo!

Hey Alex really like the idea of that tip but confused as to exactly what way to pull handle up, cheers for vids, refreshing to have really simple ideas
