How To Add More Power For Your Golf Swing

Phoenix, AZ Golf Lessons Update for Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Here is a list of how to add more power to your golf swing:

1. Tension Free – allow for your arms to hang below your shoulders and hold the club with the sensation of “soft arms.”

2. Establish a pre-swing routine – to consistently prepare prior to the start of the swing. Your routine can promote good placement of both hands onto your golf club, posture, balance, alignment (club-face and body), stance, ball position, rhythm, and proper shaft angle at address.

3. Golf swing technique – post pre-swing routine – you begin the golf swing by using both hands at the same time by swinging the club-head back towards your right shoulder (right hand player), as you end the backswing – swing both arms by swinging the entire club forward to meet the ball with a square club-face while swinging the golf club towards the target and allowing the club to continue until the end of the swing.

4. Flexibility – if you already are “flexible” this will be an asset. If you are not, then adding a stretching program will aid in your quest for more distance.

5. To increase speed – swing your arms faster on the forward swing.

6. Center face contact – the ball will always go farther when the ball makes contact with the center of the club-face.

Note 1: by swinging the arms faster for more power does not automatically mean more distance. YOU must allow your body to respond to the swing motion, which is created by way of hands (both) on the backswing, and swinging both arms on the forward swing. A true swing is: to and fro uninterrupted.

Note 2: assuming your fundamentals are sound – you have a better opportunity to add more power.

Note 3: the longer the club does not always equal longer shots.

Note 4: ‘soft arms’ does not always equal “tension free.” You may have tension that derives from negative thoughts, tension in your neck, and back.

Note 5. YOU must always look like yourself when playing golf.

Note 6: Your current full backswing is determined by your current technique, flexiblity, and strength.

Golfers in the Phoenix, AZ metro area are looking for ways to gain more power. You are definitely not alone and not out of reach. The wrong technique, mental thoughts, wrong equipment, lack of flexiblity, and lack of strength could be what is causing you not to perform your best. If you would like help with your golf game, please contact me for answers to your questions. The golf lessons are open to Phoenix area golfers form Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, and Tempe. You can set a time that is most convenient for you seven days a week.

Happy Golfing,

Phoenix, Arizona Golf Lessons Update By Robbie Camacho

Phoenix, AZ Golf Lessons Update for August 10, 2009

I have been teaching and coaching since 1996, and I am still convinced that most golfers can improve. But most don’t because of various reasons. You can make the argument for the following:

1. Golf green fees are too expensive
2. Golf takes too much time
3. Golf instruction and lessons don’t help
4. Golf is too hard
5. Golf Equipment cost too much
6. I am not good enough for lessons
7. I am not good enough for professional grade equipment
8. I don’t practice because it does not help
9. I paid for golf lessons, but I did not complete them
10. I paid for golf lessons, but I don’t listen to the instructor

If golf is your passion, then why not hire a professional to help you. Maybe you “tried golf lessons” in the past, but it did not work out for you, right? Did you really give it 100%? Did you practice as you were instructed to do? Did you ask questions if you were confused? Did your instructor explain why he/she asked you to do something? Do you understand what a golf swing is, and how to do it, so you can repeat it?

I am very passionate about teaching, coach and creating instruction programs for kids and adults. If you are debating to give “golf “lessons” another go, then do it for yourself. Are you having fun and improving your swing and game? If your answer is no, then call for assistance. Look: the golf books, the golf mags, the golf dvd’s, and Internet golf lessons are assuming that your golf fundamentals are flawless. Think about it…

For golf lessons and coaching in the Phoenix metro area, I am available at Fiddlesticks in Tempe, and Rio Salado in Tempe, Arizona. Both locations are local for a golfers from Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Scottsdale. For answers to your question please ask by call or email me at rcamacho at azgolfinstructor dot com.

Happy Golfing,

Tempe Golf Lessons Update – Fiddlesticks Golf Lessons

Tempe Golf Lessons Update – August 4, 2009

I will be coaching at two locations in Tempe, Arizona:

1. Rio Salado Golf Course

2. Fiddlesticks

Rio Salado is an all grass practice facility and nine hole golf course. Just because it is a “short golf course” don’t be fooled – the course can bite you. You will find ob (out of bounds) left on all nine holes and a hazzard (lateral and regular) that comes into play on all holes as well. And, you will find new range balls that were added last week. Rio Salado should not be overlooked.

Fiddlesticks is a 15 acre night lighted range with grass and mats. The range is very popular due to the convenient location in Tempe. You can book a golf lesson late in the evening as the range is open from 8:00 am – 10:00 pm Sunday – Thursday. The range closes at 11:00 pm on Fridays and Saturday at 12:00 am. The hours are great for the summer-time heat.

If you are interested on booking a golf lesson in Tempe, please call me, Arizona Golf Instructor & Lessons at 602.828.GOLF (4653). Both driving ranges are within close reach to all golfers from Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. You can schedule a session from topics such as coaching and instruction for corrective and/or development, putting, chipping, pitching, bunker shots, and golf course strategy.

Keep it in the fairway,
