Full Extension For Long & Solid Shots

Paul Wilson teaches a powerful, effortless, pain-free golf swing. Free Samples of my Body Swing book & videos here:

In this tip I am talking about full extension for long & solid shots. This is a vital part of what the arms need to be doing in the golf swing. Get this and you will generate way more clubhead speed giving you more distance and as a bonus you will hit the ball solidly.

One of the main swing flaws in amateur swings is a chicken wing. If you are doing a chicken wing you are narrowing your swing arc as opposed to getting full extension. Now, you may have work on this in the past but the problem is that when you get full extension of your arms just past impact and into the through swing this gives you a weird feeling. If this feels weird and you don’t know that, you will go right back to your old swing contracting your arms and never fixing your chicken wing.

So do this full extension drill daily for a while. If so, it will feel normal and you will start to do this when you swing giving you more clubhead speed producing long & solid shots .
